“But we get busy. Too busy scrolling our phone screens, watching TV, catching up with all the mundane shit in life and we forget about our dreams. We say things like “I don’t have time,” and when we get frustrated that we don’t have enough time, we assuage that feeling of impotence by buying shit we don’t need, which we think will make us feel better. Granite countertops, leather sofas, sometimes skis, climbing gear or bikes we never use. Maybe that’s because we’re scared of whatever it is we’ve been thinking about for so long, or maybe it’s easier to buy something instead of doing something. Or maybe something we saw told us our dream was something different, and we bought into that.”—Brendan Leonard (via selfinspiration)
“It’s about misunderstandings between people and places, being disconnected and looking for moments of connection. There are so many moments in life when people don’t say what they mean, when they are just missing each other, waiting to run into each other in a hallway.”—Sofia Coppola (trying to explain what Lost In Translation is about)
“As long as we’re young, we manage to find excuses for the stoniest indifference, the most blatant caddishness, we put them down to emotional eccentricity or some sort of romantic inexperience. But later on, when life shows us how much cunning, cruelty, and malice are required just to keep the body at ninety-eight point six, we catch on, we know the scene, we begin to understand how much swinishness it takes to make up a past. Just take a close look at yourself and the degree of rottenness you’ve come to. There’s no mystery about it, no more room for fairy tales. If you’ve lived this long, it’s because you’ve squashed any poetry you had in you.”—Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Journey to the End of the Night (via jonathanpham)
To the handful of people that are still in my life.
Thank you for always looking after me. Thank you for putting effort in our friendship. I’m tired of receiving the short end of the stick, working by myself in a two way relationship. Though I miss the people that recently cut me out of their life, I know I deserve better. So cheers to the people who stayed and put up with me. I just need to convince myself that I don’t need people who doesn’t need me. “Just holla if you got me and fuck you if you had me.”
