“If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.”—Frank Zappa (via jessicachu)
“The moment you feel you are no longer dependent on anyone, a deep coolness and a deep silence settles inside, a relaxed let-go. It does not mean you stop loving. On the contrary, for the first time you know a new quality, a new dimension of love—a love that is no longer biological, a love that is closer to friendliness than any relationship. That’s why I am not even using the word friendship, because that “ship” has drowned so many people.”—Osho (via loveyourchaos)
“There is something demoralizing about watching two people get more and more crazy about each other, especially when you are the only extra person in the room. It’s like watching Paris from an express caboose heading in the opposite direction—every second the city gets smaller and smaller, only you feel it’s really you getting smaller and smaller and lonelier and lonelier, rushing away from all those lights and excitement at about a million miles an hour.”—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar (via yourbeautyblinds)
I have had that urge for so long! I just wanna SEE things!
Moving from Michigan to Georgia when I was nine made me realize there is a lot to see out there and I don’t want to miss out. Traveling to new places, seeing things and getting lost has always been oddly therapeutic for me.
“Recognize that you are not the center of the universe.
Figure out how the idea of winning and losing fits into your relationships.
Be as vulnerable as you possibly can.
Recognize vulnerability and empathy as strengths.
Don’t allow the fact that other people have been assholes to you make you into a bitter and abusive person.
Commit to the revolution as a method of psychological and physical survival.”—Kathleen Hanna, Bikini Kill Zine (via grrrlstudies)
Reading tumblr posts from current students at my high school makes me realize how lucky I was to go to school before Facebook/Tumblr/Youtube. Peachtree City kids certainly know how to use all forms of technology to be assholes.
“And there’s certainly something to be said for the sprawling drone of Atlanta, the way it’s become in a lot of ways the black capital of America and the gay epicenter of the South. Georgia is steeped in history — a lot of it is sad, bloody history, but it’s history nonetheless and it makes the whole place feel a bit haunted in a cool, grim way. Georgia is full of ghosts, but it’s also wonderfully alive.”—I’m pleasantly surprised those no-car-drivin’, gay-marriage-havin’, ELITIST NEW YORKERS over at the Gawker didn’t put Georgia farther down on their list!
