the good thing about me is that you can not talk to me for 3 weeks and then talk to me and I’ll be fine and still care about you the same way I did before
the bad thing is that I do that to people and they don’t understand that sometimes I just don’t feel like interacting with people.
We are too often told to follow our dreams.
We are told this by our many idols: athletes, artists, and cultural demigods among them. I’ve been told this by two of my personal heroes. By Thoreau:Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined; and by Bradbury: Love what you do and do what you love. Don’t listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life.
But my favorite of the ways I’ve been told to follow my dreams is a lecture by the late philosopher Alan Watts, the essence of which is encapsulated in his central question: What would you do if money were no object? I encourage you to read the entirety of his message, because he states concisely and elegantly what all successful dreamers try to convey.
We should follow our dreams because, inherently, the pursuit will make us happy. And if we are sufficiently passionate, sufficiently dedicated, sufficiently patient, we will attain not just success, but the best kind of success, one that is gilted by the knowledge that we did not have to sacrifice our happiness, that we did not have to spend late nights in the office, that we did, and can continue to do, something we love, something that gives us pleasure of the highest, purest form.
Ideally, a dream is nothing less than a calling––a higher calling, even––the fulfillment of which is both sufficient and necessary to validate our existence. Our dreams mean something; they are what we were born to do, what we were designed to do, what we are destined to do
So why not follow your dreams? Why not do something you love?

This is a new season, and in order for you to rise higher, you have to break away from relationships that are limiting you. You have to develop some new relationships with people who are going to pull you up and inspire you to rise higher.
This basically sums up one of the biggest problems with the United States’ schooling system

but no seriously i need to get my shit together. i spend more time being hateful and bitter rather than doing something to better myself. i should be striving to improve myself and my well-being every day.
i love seeing happy long distance relationships
While I was living in China, I always dreamed of going to see Joey Pang or Wang at Tattoo Temple in Hong Kong. Joey has a 2 year waiting list, while Wang’s is 6 months. I kept putting it off, and now I’m back in the States. :(
The lesson, kids, is do no procrastinate!
Learn more about the amazing Ms. Joey Pang here
absolutely stunning. I’d totally wait that long for something from one of them
Holy shit these are so fucking beautiful I want to cry.
Well now I have an excuse to go to China.
fuck this semester. i have never felt so alone and lost in the course of three months than i have in my entire life. this is probably the most i’ve ever disappointed myself- how i really let one failure ruin everything that i possibly had going for me.
i’m too hard on myself. something doesn’t go the way i planned and i find all the reasons to pick out and attack my faults and flaws. i feel like i don’t even have that self-driven mentality i used to have for school anymore because school just feels like a drag now. this whole semester feels like a drag. i literally feel like pushing everyone and everything away. i’m so bitter and i keep drowning myself in my own distress, but i do know that nothing can bring me back up but myself. i need a break, i need to get away from everyone and everything here, put the bullshit behind me, and get myself together.
how can i not lose sight in this when i just can’t get myself out of this immense, bitter disappointment? this used to be my safe haven and my driving motivation, now i have nothing. nothing to look back on besides the wasted time, effort, and hopes raised too fucking high. i’ve been brought down to the lowest of the lows and can’t get myself back up.
