“No, I don’t think you’re gonna be single forever, and also I don’t understand your obsession with romantic love. There are other ways to have fulfilling relationships that can sustain you and make your life great and fun, other than having a sexualized relationship. It’s not the only kind of fulfilling human interaction. So, even if you are single forever that doesn’t mean that you’ve had some kind of failed life.”—John Green (x)
continuation from the previous questions because my computer is laaaame:
30.) What’s your favourite book genre? I was always drawn to the cultural studies section of the bookstore. Reading pop culture-y things, (hence my obsession with Chuck Klosterman) and different political movements. I also quite enjoy a lot of post modern American authors.
38.) How are your elbows? Are they okay? Haha! I recently discovered that I have very pointy elbows. Also, they’re dry. I should probably do something about that.
43.) Pick a person (you don’t need to give their name). How do you feel about them? Be as honest as you can get yourself to be. I do not quite understand what it is about the past, that it never quite leaves. Maybe I’ve never been successful at completely burning bridges (at least… my side, always worn but still erected, ready to be reunited with the other side. I’m curious as to why it pops up at the most inopportune moments, peaking its curious head back into my line of vision, placing the sound of its feigned enthusiastic voice between my ears. It stirs up different thoughts (and none of them good) much like that of leaves caught in a gust a wind that blows relentlessly against a brick building: a vicious cycle, destined to repeat until the leaf becomes so worn it disintegrates, or the wind decides to quit blowing. So, stop blowing.
50.) How often do you fall up the stairs? For anyone who has met me: I am the most accident prone person you’ll ever meet. No. Really. I know people say that, but I manage to fall when absolutely nothing has happened and I haven’t even moved. I have tripped over thin air. That being said. I haven’t fallen UP any stairs in a long while. It hurts, really bad. I’m a professional at falling down them though. Which is awful.
6.) Look to your left. How many framed pictures are on the wall? Zero. :( But I do have a bookcase with two framed photos on the top shelf?
12.) What’s the worst thing you’ve ever called someone you care about? Honestly, I can’t even remember. I’ve cared about a lot of awful people in my life though, so they probably deserved it.
23.) Do you think that things will get better? I try to operate under the belief that things, in the context of all that is vast, grand, and right in the world that things will always get better. Maybe not right away, maybe not in the way we all hope they will, but they do. It’s just a matter of making the best of it, while the proverbial sun isn’t shining.
25.) What’s your favourite quote? I have so many! SO MANYYY. One of my all time favorites, that holds sentimental value for me is by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.”— Kurt Vonnegut, A Man without a Country (via limpwristed)
space--kitten replied to your photo: there’s nothing like having a liqueur be the same...
fun fact: the color was named after the color of the liqueur!
I know! My roommate told me, haha. I think it’s so amazing. I was going to buy it and then realized I am not that big of a moneybags to afford it. One day though, one day. I will have it. In all of the ways.
