… I’m so caught up in how much I’ve gotten used to being single that I’m talking to this girl who I had a crush on that is showing a lot of interest in me as a person and I’m getting skittish.

Things are remaining rough and I can tell I’m growing. I think you can only really feel it when you’ve been in the rough for long enough… At least long enough to compare it to what life was like before. It reminds me of Batman adopting the dark as his own. I sleep at night feeling like I’m becoming a better person in the rough. Kinda feels like it’s tearing all the bad off, like passing through an unpolished cranny. It feels so good to tell people I enjoy being alone on this journey of “learning how to love”. I feel like the Thief did at the end of Holy Mountain. It feels good to admit that I don’t know anything, and to be able to find confidence in the fact that I can still learn. I feel better off this way than when I could state my opinions like they’re fact. It keeps the mystery in life in place while I’m moving on to something I would miss if it were taken away from me. And I’m looking forward to that, too. I guess you could say I’m finding bravery as well… Or some sort of bravado. It’s like a newly-found and blissful ignorance.

tl;dr Listen to Bjork’s “Innocence”.

The thing about people who feel everything so deeply is that although they get hurt & offended easily, their positive emotions are just as strong. They are the best lovers.

If someone can’t feel your poetry in a desert without internet or cell service, I think it’s fair to call it pretentious. 

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.

Film Meme - (4/7) Directors- Park Chan-Wook

I don`t feel enjoyment watching films that evoke passivity. If you need that kind of comfort, I don’t understand why you wouldn’t go to a spa. In our lives, we have good things and bad things, happiness and pain. Life is full of pain and happiness and that’s what I wanted to show.

When you create something that gets enough attention, you watch it grow and grow and one day you get up and it’ leaving your arms to run off into a sunset of other popular things cheering it on and you’re fine with that and probably cry a little happy-cry on the inside. The feeling of content that comes with that event is so fulfilling.

If you state your opinions like they’re facts and take yourself that seriously, we will probably not get along.
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.
