Social media detoxing for April. This is not a drill. I repeat: this is not a drill.

GPOY 3/30/14 The Haggard Book Addict.


Spring Break Day 1 and my right eye is markedly RED and SWOLLEN. From being irritated from not blinking enough while having my face glued to a book all day. This happens sometimes.

unsettled conflict

eats me from the inside out
fills the void with any and all things rotten and sour
festering while I lose my taste for
ANYTHING.

So good

Your own moods can be extremely deceptive. They can, and probably do, trick you into believing your life is far worse than it really is. When you’re in a good mood, life looks great. You have perspective, common sense, and wisdom…On the contrary, when you’re in a bad mood, life looks unbearably serious and difficult. You have very little perspective. You take things personally and often misinterpret those around you, as you impute malignant motives into their actions.
- Richard Carlson, Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff (via lolasambitions)

This.

austriea:

man you know what I want? a superhero series where they have powers that 100% contradict their personalities. a fishermans daughter who lives by the sea, swims every day, learns that she can control fire. a boy who’s mortified of heights but realizes he can use antigravity and hates it. someone who was bitten by a dog as a child, suffers extreme fear around animals, can now communicate with them. they’re all disgusted by their powers.

"Scared to go onward," Kaladin said, "but terrified to go back to what you were."

The best.

The best.

What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.
- J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (via somedaysarah)
