"I was born with an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give it." Click on the anchor for links.

How dare you. How dare you make me the happiest girl on earth, then cut ties with me? How dare you tell me you love me every night, then barely say a word? How could you give up? How can your handsome face be curved up in a smile while my worthless on is frowning? How can you see how miserable I am and still gaze upon her? She doesn’t know how lucky she is to physically see your lips turn up in a chuckle. She doesn’t realize the privilege it is to actually speak to you and hear your voice beside her, talking back. She doesn’t know the significance of looking into your eyes. She doesn’t understand. She doesn’t fucking get it. And she never will. I would do anything for you. I’d watch wet paint dry if it meant I could spend time with you. I’d walk through a storm willingly to know your embrace was at the end. Did you even mean it? Did you even want “us”? Did those countless hours mean nothing? You ripped out that beating object inside my chest. But I let you do it. I let you in. I let you attach. I let you love me. And this is what I get. You’re happy and I’m a wreck, like it always seems to happen. Forgive me for thinking it was different this time.

I think my bangs need to be trimmed.
This cat is probably going to kill me in my sleep one night.

Okay, if you have the guts to declare that you’re following your dream no matter what, props to you. You have my full support. I don’t care what you’re doing as long as you love it and you’re going to give it your all. That shows drive, perseverance, and passion. You could be great at whatever you do or honestly awful at it, but saying that you’re doing something you love is a lot more than most people can say. How¬†dare somebody tell you to give up on your dream? How dare somebody who has their own dreams tell another dreamer to give up? They are in absolutely no place to put down somebody brave enough to announce their dream and pursue it. As a matter of fact, nobody is.

Anybody chasing a dream or wanting to chase a dream - go for it and never look back at the people discouraging you. They’ll be the ones wishing they’d followed suit.


Seriously guys which A&C shirt should I get?

Polar Bear Cafe is my new favorite <3

I absolutely adore this little girl. While I was playing volleyball with some of the older girls at the village, she walked up to me and showed me part of a popped balloon. Since there were no more balloons left, I scooped her up and carried her on my hip for the rest of our time there. My face had started to get red, so I found one of my friends to borrow her sunscreen. Icani, the little girl, seemed to want some too, so I booped a spot of sunscreen on her nose to make her giggle. Near the end of my time with her, she started to look really tired. I heard her murmuring &#8220;agua&#8221;, then she slowly rested her head on my shoulder. I quickly grabbed a water pouch from our cooler and let her sip from it. When our class gathered in front of the village people, she even clapped for us after each song. It&#8217;s incredible how much you can love someone you just met.
I&#8217;ll never forget my little Icani.
