  • Is the sun just shining or is everything going to be okay?


  • one of my internet friends is coming to my wedding and I’m gaslighting them that I’m 6’4” and it’s working somehow (just sent a random selfie where I stood on a chair to make it seem like I’m almost the height of a door)

  • can't stop thinking about these quotes from memory police:

    "I'd imagine you'd be uncomfortable, with your heart so full of so many forgotten things."

    "No, that's not really a problem. A heart has no shape, no limits. That's why you can put almost any kind of thing in it, why it can hold so much. It's much like your memory, in that sense" (81).

    "But where do you think they were going? You can't see anything beyond the horizon," I said pointing out at the sea.

    "I don't know. Maybe there's a place where people whose hearts aren't empty can go on living" (117).

    "I understand," I said, "It's not the box's fault that it disappeared. But what can we do? It's disturbing to see things that have disappeared, like tossing something hard and thorny into a peaceful pond. It sets up ripples, stirs up a whirlpool below, throws up mud from the bottom. So we have no choice, really, but to burn them or bury them or send them floating down the river, anything to push them as far away as possible."

    "Is the music from the box that painful?" R asked, bending over and crossing his hands on his knees.

    "No, not at all. I don't think so at all" (147).

  • fell into a slump after reading one hundred years of solitude (do NOT recommend) and only read three books for march ;-; aiming for eight books for april

  • alright the agenda for today in preparation for dinner with the family: carrot cake topped with cream cheese frosting and caramelized pecans, matcha cupcakes w raspberry filling vanilla buttercream topped w candy eggs and toasted coconut shavings, lemon pie, and possibly a cheesecake?

    farq4d Scratch the cheesecake I’m thinking rosemary orange olive oil cake with mascarpone frosting ?

It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.
