"He smiled understandingly, much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with the quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced, or seemed to face, the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favour. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via chandelierswinging)
"You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things."
Jamie Tworkowski (via thatkindofwoman)
I’ve decided that I need to surround myself with people despite the tiredness that follows after I hang out with others. When I’m with others, at least I’m not alone with my thoughts, which leads to me overanalyzing, overthinking literally (not using literally in a “really jane? literally..?” but like actually.) everything. My overthinking thought processes have been annoying the qo487caeiyszdhdfhgdfgiu out of me lately
Anyway, the school’s radio station does this live show thing every week or every couple of weeks and despite the fact that I have a friend who’s highly involved with the station, I have yet to go to a live show! I’m going tonight, though, to watch La Luz, the all-too-awesome local girl band. I’m not sure who to go with… as my roommates would go possibly semi-begrudgingly. I wish I knew who has really similar music tastes to mine— I need to talk to more people about music. Anyway, I might just go by myself and see who’s there. I’m pumped though
Beautifully sunny day today— I think it’s going up to the 80s this weekend, too. What the hell, weird. Oh hey! April showers did bring May flowers hah ha ha
I can’t wait to have my car up here in Seattle. Such an opportune weekend to go driving off somewhere and hiking. I honestly wouldn’t mind going on nature adventures by myself either. Man, I really can’t wait to have my car up here.
had a dream that Daughter came to our campus and had an impromptu mini show on the campus walkway by the chapel. i was so in awe that i could not stop conjuring up the :o face in my thoughts and i think i ran around a little bit trying to get people to come watch because ‘dude! Daughter’s here and she’s performing! on campus! there’s like 5 other people listening to her right now!’ and nobody that i told cared, sigh
what a shame that was just a dream, haha
In Le Petit Prince, Matej Peljhan captures the imagination of a 12 year old boy with muscular dystrophy though the magic of photography. Instead of using Photoshop, Matej created the illusion of flying by angling his shots from above while using a simple white sheet as a backdrop.
