Don’t stray very far from your soul,
it’s simple things show us the reason we’re here

“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here.”

one saturday, i won’t have anywhere to go.
at 9:07, i’ll find you next to me
kiss your forehead
and go back to sleep

one saturday, i’ll make a slow breakfast.
while you’re in the shower,
i’m making the coffee
and you’re slipping your arms around me

one saturday, we’ll be together.
wandering farmers markets
snapping pictures of each other,
sneaking kisses

one saturday, ill go to sleep.
knowing that life can’t get better
that i’m not dreaming
that i’m finally home.

To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.

anyone else feel hella uncomfortable about how self-rightous the US is being about Russia’s anti-gay policies during the olympics?

in my state its still perfectly legal to fire someone for their sexuality and the government basically doesn’t realize that trans people exist

shut the fuck up

YES

NO.

The fact that we as a country aren’t perfect doesn’t mean that we can’t call out another country that is being FAR worse. To say otherwise is equivalent to saying “You’ve broken the speed limit? Well I guess you can’t call me out for murder, since you’ve broken the law too.”

The US isn’t perfect on this topic, but we are far better than Russia, and we can still try to make the rest of the world better while we better ourselves.
