"My sails are always ready, my anchor always stowed. And though I found my harbor, I set sail again, because that’s what ships were meant to do."
-- Prescott Reynolds
❝I’ve always believed that the universe invented the color red solely for Latinas.❞
(Junot Diaz, This Is How You Lose Her)

It feels like everyone has been speaking in code lately. Like everyone is slowly and meticulously walking around the truth in concentric circles that widen further and further away from it, flattening into meaninglessness. I keep starting and restarting my sentences, beginning them aimlessly to fill the silence without any idea of where they’re headed. I honestly have no idea what anyone is telling me half the time.




❝When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.❞
(Deepak Chopra (via larmoyante))

“Love Ready”

This is pretty much the worst thing ever.

❝If there’s one thing I’ve learned while dating people in my 20s it’s that guys like it when girls are mean to them and girls like it when guys are mean to them and everyone is insanely cruel to everyone and this entire generation will die out alone because no one knows how to treat anyone with an ounce of human respect or empathy but pet sales are skyrocketing and everyone is taking hikes and getting some great exercise of all their self-restraint by not walking straight off the sides of mountains.❞

How To Ruin Your Life

909miles:

Get stuck. Stay in one place your whole life. Always order vanilla even though the menu is four pages long. Become the type of person who sends back lattes. Save up your money for a plasma TV instead of a plane ticket. Talk a lot about things you know nothing about. Have an affair with someone you don’t even find attractive.

Refuse to forget your ex. Make it impossible for yourself to do anything without remembering that you used to do it with them. Hug your knees under the sheets and think about how safe you felt when they held you at night. Remind yourself daily of how empty you feel. Find new ways to make yourself sad.

Get drunk all the time. Consider no Saturday night, national holiday or extended happy hour complete without a vodka-induced breakdown. Graduate college but keep drinking like you’re still in it. Notice that cheap beer tastes watery and stale when you drink it alone but drink it anyway. Look at old Facebook photos wasted and wonder where everyone went.

Never drink. Never do anything that could potentially be “bad” for you. Treat your body like the temple it is and say no to carbs, yes to wheatgrass, go to bed at ten sharp and turn down cake on your birthday. Take fifteen different dietary supplements. Monitor carefully. Succumb to nothing. Miss out on everything.

Compare yourself constantly, to everyone. Allow the standards of image-obsessed, age-obsessed culture to make you feel decrepit at 25. Scroll through skinny girls on Tumblr feeling wistful and inadequate. Pull at the skin on your hipbones, stomach, and underarms in the mirror. Sigh a lot. Sigh all the time.

Don’t fall in love with anyone or anything. Put an impenetrable wall between yourself and other people. Add a fire-breathing dragon and eight yards of barbed wire. Be suspicious of everyone’s motives. Hold grudges long after you’ve forgotten what for.

Fall in love with everyone and everything. Run after the next best thing like it’s a bus you’re perpetually late for. Throw your heart into every other stranger’s hands and be genuinely surprised to be hurt. Refuse to learn. Refuse to ever learn.
