diffident difference is deferent to me.
some days, it is so very hard being so very different. i don’t think i like it. there’s this idea in our culture that’s become a subculture itself, and that idea is “you are cool if you are different; if you make a statement different from everyone else.” so many people are a part of this movement (young people, artists, rebels, free-thinkers, even conservatives),...

At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey. —Daniel Handler (pseudonym: Lemony Snicket)

maxistentialist: David Foster Wallace: If what’s always distinguished bad writing — flat characters, a narrative world that’s clichéd and not recognizably human, etc. — is also a description of today’s world, then bad writing becomes an ingenious mimesis of a bad world. If readers simply believe the world is…
a poem on mother and drugs
i hear my mom used to be a druggie and was promiscuous like no other. this explains SO MUCH. this also pisses me off: i don’t care what she did or chose but i care that she never told me, and she raised me like i would be her one day. like she doesn’t realize I’m not the weak-minded idiot she was.

A little sumpin sumpin I wrote a while back to help me forget. I want to fly away to the East where the sun rises and make my home by the seaside. I’ll bring my books and my coffee and paints. I’ll sail out into the morning, when the sun is kissing the sea just-so, and disappear into the beams that live on the waves. The dolphins will teach me how to sail to the islands that house the...

My Favoritest Person.
I spent the night at my adoptive Mama’s last night. It was nice, because virtually no one knew where I was (I told my dad, that’s it). I love that feeling of freedom and camouflage, as if I’m leaving behind my identity for a bit and hiding away. But what was the best was that I was hiding away at my favoritest person’s home for the night. I wish everyone could meet her and...
