1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.
i was reading through my journal and i found this one page and it broke me
Annie Hall | Woody Allen | 1977
Reminder to self:
One mistake will not make the world hate me.
I fucking hate college.
I fucking wish I were dead.
College is really shit.
One day you’re going to wake up
and hate that cheap perfume I wear too much of every day.
You will despise the feel of my calloused hands.
You will nearly vomit when my chapped lips say hello to your neck .
You will be bored with my stupid jokes you used to laugh at.
One day you’re going to wake up,
and on that day you won’t love me anymore.
All I can do is wait.
shredidity said: Tay, I wish you the best of luck today! I look forward to hearing how your first day of college was, and of course if your professors were like explained on ratemyprofessor. I love you, Matt S. P.S. I CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU ON FRIDAY
I love you sweetie. Thank you so much.
Racism isn’t born, folks. It’s taught. I have a 2-year-old son. Know what he hates? Naps. End of list.
Interesting how we’re always hearing how shameful and irresponsible it is to be a teen mom.
But we never hear the same messages directed at teen dads.
Or even the words “teen dad”.
It’s almost like society demonizes women’s sexuality and sexual choices while absolving men of all sexual responsibility and judgement.
