The best of me book by Nicholas Sparks is completely different then I the movie and I think I like the book better so far. It is just really good. I always was more fond of book versions instead of the movie ones ;)
“Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey.”—Daniell Koepke (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
When you come to college and get roommates (for maybe the first time) I am telling you do not listen to your RA when she tells you to leave notes. DO NOT DO IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO WISH CONFLICT UPON YOURSELF. Maybe it is just a midwesterner thing..but DO NOT leave notes. It is seriously the most passive aggressive thing that you could do! Just talk to them up front and talk with them about it. Being honest is always better, even if there may be some conflict to clear up.
But please for the love of God do not use post-its to tell your roommate to clean or do dishes or be a better human being.
Usually you will end up with a worse, not better human being.
“Stories you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.”—Neil Gaiman, M Is for Magic (via observando)
Well..I finished how I met your mother..I think they crapped on the whole season though. It felt kind of pointless when you got to the last two episodes…I think the Ted/Robin thing was too rehashed..Idk. It was still good. Gonna watch a good chick flick and not think about it..lol
I have heard the finale for how I met your mother isn’t that great. i still love the show though which is why I wanted to finish it. I already know what happens since I was on the tumblr the day it was spoiled for everyone..haha i hadn’t watched it yet and actually its one of the reasons i started watching it and the fact that i’ve heard its hilarious and good. It is both these things.
I love books because there is so much beauty in words. So many thoughts that go unidentified without words to give them life. There are so many thought provoking ideas and quotes and books that give us life. Books and words make me whole again through their stories and ideas. Books teach me how to be better. I just love it that you can learn so much just sitting in bed with a book and some slow music playing.
“I want to beg you as much as you can, to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”—Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (via ramsesprashad)
as a female, i don’t understand the need for huge diamonds as engagement rings. why would you want a downpayment on a house just sitting on your finger?
Yes! I never understood this either. I will be happy with whatever my husband gets me. I will just be so excited that he loves me that much to propose and spend forever with me. I will so estatic to start a life together.
