I apply my personality in a paste. I won’t claim I’m the most lucid but I want to say I’m the most honest and sincere and uncool. And that’s the best currency to be traded in this bankrupt world: what we share with each other when we’re uncool.
Courtney's the name, binary sudoku's the game. I am grateful to be a little boat, full of water, still floating.
"the best often die by their own hand
just to get away,
and those left behind
can never quite understand
would ever want to
them" "Cause and Effect" by Charles Bukowski (via theclassicreader)
"There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise." Emery Allen (via wethinkwedream)
"You feel warm and kind of wonderful. And then the next thing you know, it’s a problem, and you’re isolated. It’s more selfish than that. It’s just literally being afraid. And you think, oh, this will ease the fear. And it doesn’t." Robin Williams, describing how his first drink felt after staying sober for 20 years (via violentwavesofemotion)
