I think your personal blog will be very interesting. It's a funny coincidence that you created a blog spot the same day I trashed my old one and created a new one. Anyways, I'm looking forward to your posts, best of luck!
You’re always so sweet. I’m equally as interested in seeing how your new one turns out lady!
I watch her shutter away from the rain, her skin tightens in response to the chill and her hands gently glide up and down her arms.
She prances into another room escaping the feeling, leaving me alone to notice what mood nature is really in.
It’s somber and dismal - just how I like it.
The light tap tap tap tap tap as the water hits the roof and falls onto the wooden patio, the clarity in the passing vehicles as they ride through miniscule rivers along the streets, the dripping streams running down the bark of the surrounding plant life.
The bitterness hits me now, my skin involuntarily tightens like a blanket pulling itself closer around me and I stare at the goose bumps while running my fingers over them.
I’m reminded of braille and the feeling is similar to a blind man finding his sight again.
I walk to the windows and open all of them, letting the raw, cool, earthy aromas fill my lungs as if it’s the last.
I stand there for a moment before returning to reality, a gentle sigh pours from my lips, “I like the rain,” I say.
“Through an experience that simultaneously involved my sensibility and intelligence, I realized early on that the imaginative life, however morbid it might seem, is the one that suits temperaments like mine. The fictions of my imagination (as it later developed) may weary me, but they don’t hurt or humiliate. Impossible lovers can’t cheat on us, or smile at us falsely, or be calculating in their caresses. They never forsake us, and they don’t die or disappear.”—Fernando Pessoa
“What can I expect from myself? My sensation in all their horrible acuity, and a profound awareness of feeling. A sharp mind that only destroys me, and an unusual capacity for dreaming to keep me entertained. A dead will and a reflection that cradles it, like a living child.”—Fernando Pessoa
It's near Halloween and you like Zombies, so... How would you survive a zombie apocalypse?
It’s really sad that I’ve legitimately been thinking about this day for years and I wrote an entire essay complete with powerpoint presentation on it in school.
Transportation: A large vehicle that you eventually equip with gates, plows and automatic guns outside of the sunroof. I’d initially go with a Toyota FJ Cruiser, Hummer H2 (even though the original military one is Godly), Mercedes Benz Unimog (only in my dreams), any Land Rover, and of course the Earthroamer XV-LT - the motor home from hell.
Weapons: Unfortunately it’s not as easy as walking into a Wal-Mart and finding guns, but it’s still do-able (especially once everyone is dead). Sawed off shotgun, machete, flame thrower (only in my dreams), crowbar (tire iron), baseball bat with nails as primary close encounter weapons. Smaller guns, knives, etc. as secondary weapons.
For availing hoards - grenades, molotov cocktails, RPG (only in my dreams), pipe bombs. Eventually equipping myself with long-range weapons like a crossbow, sniper rifle (or carbine).
Team: It’s really tricky to decide if you’d want a team of people at your side or if you’re better off alone. My opinion is traveling with a very small group who is capable of holding their own, and not picking up people along the way who need saving all the time.
Extras: First aid kit, sturdy boots, water, purification tablets, sleeping bag, compass, matches/lighters, map, flashlight, durable clothing, signal flares.
Obviously I wouldn’t be able to grab everything on this giant list at first and it might take a bit of time but I would do what I could to have it all as soon as possible.
I'm in a messy love triangle (well more like angle). I'm in love with a good friend of mine and he happens to like my bestfriend, she rejected him and he rejected me because he's hung up on her, which I understand. However, months later she happens too "fall in love" with him and now she's totally broken the "girl code" and she's dating him. I feel betrayed and walked all over and she expects me to be okay with everything. I need help, I feel like I'm drowning in my own mind and my closes friends just risked my friendship to get their way. What do I do? Should I just cut them out of my life for being so shitty? I'm okay that they're dating, I just can't believe she tells me to "get over it" and "I risked our friendship"
It really depends on your relationships with both of them and how angry you are over the way they’ve dismissed your feelings.
I don’t think ‘girl code’ exists, because if I were in love I wouldn’t let someone stop me from being happy (assuming it’s going to actually go somewhere, I wouldn’t ruin a friendship over lust).
If you don’t want to cut them out, at least just cut contact for a few days or even a week or two to gain some more perspective. Once everything has calmed down, you two girls can have a proper conversation and you can explain how you’re fine with them dating but not with how she treated you and if she’s worthy of being your friend she will apologize.
Sometimes things like this can be a blessing in disguise. Maybe she isn’t really a good friend and cutting them both out can dissolve a lot of your stress. How much you value them is really the biggest factor here.
I hope I helped a bit and I appreciate that you trust my opinions, if you want to talk more don’t hesitate.
