so now you’re about to turn twenty and the world hasn’t gotten any bigger for you. you’re untouched, unloved, unprepared. your parents still pay for your gas. your friends all have internships. one of them even got cast to be in a movie. you’ve got all this talent that you don’t know how to share. you just want to be with someone, anyone, to feel a little less like an island. the man at the McDonald’s drive-thru held both sides of your hand when he handed you your change and you cried the entire way home. skin burns. you’re about to turn twenty and you feel like you’re fifteen. you sleep for fourteen hours and still need a nap. the world is shrinking one empty heartache at a time.
you’re scared you’ll never find anyone to love you, not even well. you’ll settle for anything.
you’re about to turn twenty and they never remind you how young that is. falling in love does not make you grow up, heartbreak does, and there is more than one way to fall apart. you’re about to turn twenty and it’s okay if you aren’t ready. it’s okay if you aren’t ready. it’s okay.
Biology gives you a brain. Life turns it into a mind.
Thought I would post pics of the posters I got a couple weeks ago because my walls were empty. Intentionally weird angles so that there isn’t a glare. All of these can be found on the DFTBA site(which is chock full of awesome stuff btw).
I love love love seeing photos of my collages on people’s walls. Thank you dear nerdfighter for being awesome and making me super happy with this photo! (And for buying them all! I thought I was the only one with one of each!)
May I also add that your arrangement is impeccable. Like, how on earth do you get it that straight?
I’m glad seeing this made you happy! I loved the designs so much I couldn’t resist getting them all. I looked at some of your other stuff and it’s so amazing. All of it, seriously. (you guys should go check out her blog to see some, you won’t regret it).
It also took longer than I’d probably like to admit to get them up on the wall that straight!
A truly intelligent person is not one who can simply spout words
and numbers; it is someone who can react ‘intelligently’ to all the
opportunities, simulations and problems provided by the environment.
Real intelligence means engaging your brain with every aspect of life –
you play sport with you brain; you relate to others brain-to-brain;
