No Complaining. No Compromising

"people are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they cant find them, make them" -Vive, (Mrs. Warren's Profession).

Daily Dose

Somewhere in between creating this blog and ranting on it, I forgot all about including what inspires me. The very thing I created it for. What tugs at my heart strings, what gives me the passion I find in writing and reading and beauty. So following are a few things that make my heart turn inside my chest, put a smile on my face, and give me the motivation I need to finish my degree, when school makes me hate life.

1. Old Books

Spending my Saturday in an old library full of old books that smell like wisdom and are picturesque. I love it. and I would so very much love to visit this place. or make it my bedroom.

maybe minus the cat

2. Dancers and Outside, or dancers that are outside.

This picture is everything good in the world. Well some of the good at least. I love ballet. as mentioned before, my ballet career was short winded, but my passion for watching it is still insane and loving the sun shining on a grassy lawn isn't optional. It takes you over with a glance. Its pictures like these that get me through these northern winters.

3. The Eiffel Tower

I have never been to Paris. But for some reason I am captivated by the Eiffel Tower. It is romance in in purest form, or so I am lead to believe by what I can only assume to be movies, songs, and photos such as these. one day ill be there. In Paris, and maybe even in pure romance.

4. The Olsen Twins

Haters gonna hate, but these two are amazing. When you grow up watching them grow up, they become a part of your childhood, and as we all know, once something joyful has become a part of your childhood, its hard to break those ties. I grew up feeling like they were some of my best friends, and to this day, they inspire me. With their style and beauty, and work in the clothing line the row. All it takes is a photo of their wavy blond hair and big sunglasses to put me in an "I can be anyone I choose to be" mood. In a good way of course.

5. Other Writers

I love them. I love English class, other than lengthy papers on specific uninteresting topics and the early morning (okay okay 11 am ) lectures. But the authors we read in class, and the other bloggers I follow. You know who you are, and you inspire me. Lately, especially this guy . maybe from my city. maybe.

so that is 5. I could stay up all night coming up with more. But at least you get a taste of what is like to live in my mind when I'm being inspired.

My Heart Broke When I Saw You Kept Your Gaze Controlled

She couldn't love him. It wouldn't be fair. To deceive her best friend like that for so long. To hide her intentions so well. Not right. that's a better phrase, for it was sort of fair. Fair for the only person she could be herself around to steal her heart. For him to be the only one that mattered. For her every moment to be spent with him, and every piece of news anxiously shared with. When smiling feels natural and joy is so common it goes unnoticed, that's when you know it's real. But it was unfair for him not to notice. And for him to be so very suddenly taken away.

Love It.

"go after her. don't sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that's what you should do if you love someone, don't wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, dont let people happen to you, don't let me happen to you, or her, shes not a television show or tornado. there are people i might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at 4 in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and i always thought id be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on 4 days notice because you cant just sit there and do nothing. Breathing into telephones is not everyone's idea of love but it is the way i can recognize it because that is what i do. go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really."
