"One day I woke up
and we no longer spoke
the same language.
I haven’t heard from you since."

"13 things my uncle told me before he died:
not everyone has the blessing to understand sadness
when waiting at the bus stop, it’s okay to smoke cigarettes
never touch anyone else’s clothes at the laundromat
it’s okay to miss the people who were bullets to you
when your grandmother asks you how you are, be honest
never be afraid to say “no” even after you’ve said “yes”
if someone tells you graffiti isn’t art, prove them wrong
remember people by their eye color not their clothes
you’re allowed to like dark chocolate with tangerines
don’t lie that you don’t have a lighter when you really do
turn your phone off every once in a while and find the moon
if you want a tattoo, don’t let anyone tell you not to get it
if you ever find yourself at the graveyard, read the names"

Mission log: Day 14. I’m ready for the future to be here.
A Surprise Pride and Prejudice Engagement
(Note: This isn’t me)
See? This is a tailor-made proposal. Not some “big screen of basketball game nonsense. This person took into account his girlfriend’s pastimes and favourite things in the world, knew how close to the family she was and engineered the perfect engagement proposal, without a doubt managing to make sure this would please her (surely her mother and sisters would know).
This is how you do big gestures.
This is so awesome I can’t even.
Also, the look on her face as she came into the house. Hehehehehehe!
See, ordinarily I’m against surprise and/or stunt proposals, but this is just class.
^^ What Onion said.
oh my goodness this is the greatest thing.
this is too cute on too many levels
"Stop using your body
as a plot against your mother
who never quite notices.
Against the boy
who never seemed to care.
Against your friend
who seems to drop weight
so much easier.
is not a threat,
is not a pawn.
Stop abusing it."
They say you’re unworthy of
Either country’s blood.
Don’t believe them - you’re simply
Strong enough for two.
