Clever girl. You play with fire because you want to be burnt.
I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth — and truth rewarded me.
Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.

power of positivity

In maybe his first moment of not disappointing me,

my brother bought me Arcade Fire tickets.

I was the one who scored them half-price via an amazing girl on craigslist

but I digress,

I am happy.

Some of the best musical nights of my life have been created by this band.

Plus, 

I get to see a high school favorite reunite and open for them.

Between this and a so-far spectacular first week at a job flush with opportunity,

I’m thinking the world’s really on my side.

I like it.

3 days, eeee.

3 days, eeee.

“I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up. Blood’s flowing. I’m less susceptible to impulse. I’m in a different mode. When I was way out of shape, the idea of using whitening strips on my teeth seemed terrible. I have to do that every day? I’ll never do it. What you want is instant results when you’re out of shape. You want your teeth whitened in 45 minutes with the use of lasers. But when you’re in shape, you know it’s the result of doing a little bit every day. Moments aren’t just moments. A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of Boy, I’d love to eat this hamburger right now, I’m considering a little further into the future. I’m thinking, I eat that hamburger and that’s 1,200 calories, and I’m gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I’m actually making progress.” — Chris Pratt

This just motivated the fuck out of me.

Chris Pratt is my new god

chris pratt should get this quote tattoo’d on his abs

Chris Pratt: motivating me to get my ass to the gym when I was about to take a nap. That ain’t easy.

Non-scale victory: officially shopping in single digits

Be joyful because it is humanly possible.
Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
Don’t trust charming. Why? Because the boy who can talk all the right words knows it too well. Things like boys and love aren’t meant to be practiced like that, it should be a bit awkward- it should be raw.
Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.
