HELLO.

life is funny

and other vaguely specific posts

the last time i took a paid vacation (or one at all, for that matter) was in 2009. the last time i saw my family was in 2001, at age 16 - twelve years ago. i will be back much, much sooner. if your family lives near you, or in the same country as you, hold them close. i am thankful that i am now able to appreciate the magnitude of their care and love for each other.

"When you’re 16, you don’t know what forever means.
When you are 23, you couldn’t be more sorry to say that after all this ‘growing up together,’ all the good has gone away.
Sometimes the boys that should be your best friends become strangers with familiar faces."

— Jeffery Eaton

"i need you to be the strength of widows and soul survivors.
i need you to be as fearless as new mothers and new fathers.
i need you to be the hope of hearts who lost true love.
i need you to be the might of their first kiss.
i need a purpose and i need a reason.
i need to know that there is trophy and meaning
to all that we lose and all we fight for;
to all our loves and our wars.
keep breathing,
keep living,
keep searching,
keep pushing on.
keep bleeding,
keep healing,
keep fading,
keep shining on.
this is for the hearts still beating."

— Jacob Bannon

"The world isn’t against you, my dear; it just doesn’t care."

— Jeffery Eaton

smoke the pain away

wanting so badly to love life so madly that wanting was almost enough.
