“You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.”—(via harrystylesno)
So incredibly sick of listening to my roommate talk. He’s on the phone all day, sits in the middle of house so that there’s nowhere I can go in the house that I can’t hear him, and he talks so loudly that I can’t even drown him out with my headphone volume up all the way. I’m so annoyed/overstimulated that I’m near tears. But he works from home, so I can’t exactly tell him stfu. I can’t wait until I can move into my room at my new place.
do you ever feel like there’s just so many pretty girls but most dudes are just subpar like there are radiant goddesses everywhere and just piles and piles of guys in backwards baseball caps and sandals
"INFPs are sensitive, territorial, personal, self-aware, and perceptive… and so defensive of what we know at a deep level. INFPs are so “self” aware that we often feel we’re more aware of others than others are of themselves. INFPs have a strong sense of the individual, be it the INFP’s sense of their own individuality or the individuality of others. And INFPs are very aware of relationships between individuals, hyper-aware even… all the while being super sensitive about group dynamics which often are responded to negatively if they feel intrusive. An extreme INFP can be neurotically aware of everything around them… every little nuance in the environment will be felt… or else the INFP will become shut down completely and focus entirely inward which will probably just make them all the more sensitive to every tiny perceived intrusion."
I can think of so many examples where I’ve felt this.
“Suicidal feelings are not the same as giving up on life. Suicidal feelings often express a powerful and overwhelming need for a different life. Suicidal feelings can mean, in a desperate and unyielding way, a demand for something new. Listen to someone who is suicidal and you often hear a need for change so important, so indispensable, that they would rather die than go on living without the change. And when the person feels powerless to make that change happen, they become suicidal.
Help comes when the person identifies the change they want and starts to believe it can actually happen. Whether it is overcoming an impossible family situation, making a career or study change, standing up to an oppressor, gaining relief from chronic physical pain, igniting creative inspiration, feeling less alone, or beginning to value their self worth, at the root of suicidal feelings is often powerlessness to change your life – not giving up on life itself.
I’m so confused and angry and sad. I know it’s time for a lot of big changes, and I’m putting a lot of effort into making them. I’ve come a long way. But it’s so slow, and so much. I just want to get through this already, I feel like I can’t take another day like this. I just want to love and be loved, experience new things and enjoy the things I know.
It is important to do good things frequently and with no ulterior motive. You oughtn’t just do them because you think people are watching. In fact, I think you should do at least five nice things every day that no one knows about. Secret acts of good will to subtly improve the world. A silent revolution from the heart.
Helen Marnie, better known as the main voice of frosty synthpop outfit Ladytron, recently took a break from her day job to deliver her first solo album, Crystal World. On paper, this seems like a good move because after four albums ranging in quality from solid to exceptional, Ladytron finally released their first dud in 2011 with Gravity The Seducer. Unfortunately, Crystal World doesn’t do much to fix the group’s recent shortage of ideas. That said, there is one moment that reminds me of the past glory that made me fall in love with Helen in the first place. “Sugarland” has just the right mix of ingredients to get our hairs standing on end: Ominous bass, frozen synths, echoing guitars, and Marnie’s determined yet somehow still indifferent voice in command of the whole operation. The album may not match the high standards we’re used to from our Scottish songstress, but at least “Sugarland” is helping me remain hopeful for her next attempt.
Best Moment: After a verse and a half, this mysterious, theremin-like noise drops into place at 1:18 and Marnie begins mirroring herself just enough to bring things up to another level.
