For the longest time, I thought being somebody meant my existence had to be succeeded by something measurable, but I am still tangled in the sticky web of life, still trudging through this labyrinth to understand who I am, ambling across the jagged topography of life, with clumsy fingers and a steady gaze. I am - breathing, feeling, living - I am my present and the looming shadow of the future - limitless and complete - and I think that is enough. I think I am enough.

Silence isn’t always clumsy,
Sometimes, it is more eloquent than language.
Silence isn’t always a remedy of wordless tongues,
Sometimes, it burns bridges to rubble until you’re standing with cindered bones and a parched throat.

I am surrounded by an ever-mounting stack of books I intend to read.

Summer nights should be spent outside.

  1. If you like someone, wait.
  2. Give lots of compliments, even if you’re shy. Everyone else is too.
  3. Change. Get a haircut, try new perfume, get new sheets. Become better than you were before.
  4. Eat healthier. Learn to cook something fancy.
  5. Get up earlier and watch the sun come up.
  6. Wear soft clothes, take a bath, drink something warm.
  7. Meet someone new, even just a friend.
  8. Become closer with your friends and your family. Call your mother. Cry with your best friend. Tell everyone how much you appreciate them.
  9. Keep your room clean. Buy some candles. Let the natural light in.
  10. Make a list of reasons why you’ll be better off without them. Believe they are true, because they are.
  11. Listen to new music.
  12. Write everything you’re thinking and feeling. Write letters. Write happy letters, sad letters, and angry letters, even if you’re never going to send them.
  13. It’s okay to be sad, but not forever. Sadness is not as beautiful as music makes it seem. Lack of sleep makes your eyes droopy, not deep. Wake up every morning and tell yourself you’re going to have a good day.
  14. Go to the library. Don’t forget to look in the music section.
  15. Remove them from your life. Get rid of the things they gave you if they make you sad. They’re not worth it. You will never be happy if you continue to hold on to the things that make you sad.
  16. Make new memories.
  17. Try to find something to appreciate in everything you do or experience.
  18. Being alone is okay, you don’t have to surround yourself with people.
  19. Become your own best friend. Buy yourself coffee and drink it alone in a cafe. Take your time.
  20. Learn to love every bit of yourself.
