"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living…I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear…The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.
Goodbye tumblr thanks to some do or die predicaments I must spend all my waking moments indulging in economics and lps calculus proofs, instead of gifs of confused cats/fandom puns/ethereal photographs/whatever I do here in tumblrland. Next time I see the alltoofamiliar blue of my dashboard will be in two weeks after I have aced my finals and died from lack of sun and and exhaustion. Toodleoo my bitches and hoes
"Although you are very small and your kind have existed in the universe for only a short time, you are an important part of something very large and very beautiful."

My mom once said to me, “if you ever have car troubles but don’t know what the problem is, don’t take it in to a mechanic because they will try to sell you things you don’t need. Instead park yourself on the side of the highway, pop your hood, and look confused. Some mechanic will pull over to help and he’ll tell you what the problem is for free.” And that’s the day I realized that I could make the patriarchy work for me.
When photographer Nick Olson and designer Lilah Horwitz had their first date they jokingly wondered what it would be like to live in a house with an entire facade made of windows. While most people would keep that idea as a dream, the two decided to go for it and just make their dream come true. A few months later they quit their jobs and started to collect dozens of windows from garage sales and antique dealers. In 2012 they finished their very own glass cabin in the mountains of West Virginia. The beautiful video was shot by Half Cut Tea. [via]
#note to self
rise from your own ashes. destruction can’t kill you, only apathy and helplessness. the cruel and wonderful irony is that these things only exist in your mind.
you’re much stronger than you think you are. you’ve created this safe haven to cradle yourself in protective selfpity. but you can’t grow if you don’t break out of this shell. burst forth and ignite your bones with fire greater than the stagnancy of comfort/fear. you’re stronger than you think you are. you just need to be brave.
