“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or a tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love, but it is the way i can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.”—Unknown (via thatkindofwoman)
starting up working for StudioSaySo (my brothers company) again tomorrow. since I don’t go back to Burn until February. i’m kinda looking forward to being busy again during the day, and working for Danny is always fun, but it’ll be weird/awesome to be back to doing video stuff. i generally enjoy it a lot.
anyway, just a wee little update on my not so exciting life. word.
“I may sound old-fashioned, but I want to think all women should be treated like I want my wife, daughters, and granddaughters to be treated. I notice today that good manners—like standing up when a woman enters the room, helping a woman with her coat, letting her enter an elevator first, taking her arm to cross the street—are sometimes considered unnecessary or a throwback. These are habits I could never break, nor would I want to. I realize today a lot more women are taking care of themselves than in the past, but no woman is offended by politeness.”—Frank Sinatra (via modernhepburn)
“And in the beginning, my lungs had too much air in them, whenever you were near, like I could never breathe out enough. And in the end, my throat closed, whenever you were far, like I could never breathe in again.”—“The Art of Breathing” | I Wrote This For You (via rocksome)
“I’m grateful for anything that reminds me of what’s possible in this life. Books can do that. Films can do that. Music can do that. School can do that. It’s so easy to allow one day to simply follow into the next, but every once in a while we encounter something that shows us that anything is possible, that dramatic change is possible, that something new can be made, that laughter can be shared.”—Jonathan Safran Foer (via thatkindofwoman)
thankful post day #4. today i am thankful for technology.
i’m thankful for being 926 miles away and still being able to talk like it’s nothing. im thankful for texts from friends that warm my heart. im thankful for being able to type this post. im thankful for, as stupid and horrible as this sounds, being able to keep tabs on all my people, no matter how far away they are. im thankful for being able to facetime with my sister in Providence and for being able to share pictures with my friends who are out at a bar in maryland tonight.
so im thankful for technology. and i know it makes me sounds like a brat. but thats why im saying that im thankful for it. cause i am.
