At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare
Do you ever catch yourself thinking rude things about someone or judging them and you’re like “hey stop that, that’s not nice don’t u do that”
That second to last panel is chilling.
I’m an adult, but not like a real adult
fuck every single time that last line gets quoted without the rest
Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.
As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.
I went home for the first time in almost a month & it was okay til I saw my dog & then I just started crying & held him and kept telling him I was sorry for leaving him and he just licked my face and hugged me back.
He knocked me off my high horse & reminded me that I shouldn’t be a conceited little cunt who makes everything about her.
This is why I owe my dog my life. I love you Frank.
Miley: “Dad I have something for Tanners bug collection”
my uncle: “that’s great”
Miley: “it’s a bird”
my uncle: “no its not”
They let it go and it flew away just fine, so we’re wondering how she caught it.

What other parts of the world would you like to visit besides where you live?
Hard question. I mean, everywhere really. But more specifically at the top of my list are Africa, Iceland, Scottish highlands, and Chile & Argentina. But then also India, Himalayas, China, Australia, etc… The list goes on for ever ahaha.
I live here. I’m so lucky to live here.
Um fuck yeah. They spelled Columbia wrong though
I am so sorry to all the people I hurt while I was hurting.
if your mental health is ruining your education and you know it clap your hands
if your education is ruining your mental health and you know it clap your hands
If your education’s sketchy, and your life is kind of shitty
If the current state of things is a little fucked up, clap your hands.
Trust the vibes you get, energy doesn’t lie.
