A place to vent, elaborate, work through, gush, document and explore the troubles and joys of my nomadic heart as I follow it through life <3
It led me to study abroad through Semester at Sea, and now I will graduate in May with a double major in film and theatre, then hopefully work for Disney and then TeachForAmerica.
LOVES (aka you will see)
I want to date someone who is genuinely my best friend. Someone who I can stay up late talking to, and have meaningful conversations with. Someone who treats everybody friendly. Someone who’s there for me when I need them to be, and vice-versa. Someone I can love.
Have you ever felt a potential love for someone?
Like, you don’t actually love them and you know you don’t, but you know you could. You realise that you could easily fall in love with them. It’s almost like the bud of a flower, ready to blossom but it’s just not quite there yet. And you like them a lot, you really do. You think about them often, but you don’t love them. You could, though. You know you could.

I wanted to tell you to stop the car and take me home. I wanted to tell you that you confuse me and I have no idea what you’re thinking. That I have no idea what I’m thinking. I wanted to tell you that I don’t see it anymore. That my life is so different now. That I’m so different now. That every time we see each other it’s like we’re meeting again for the first time. That it wouldn’t work because of x, y, and z. But then you made me smile. Then you made me laugh. Then you made plans and you held my hand. Then you said you just wanted to kiss me and moved a strand of hair out of my face. And I couldn’t. In your arms, I was happy and home. So, I stayed and I dreamt of all the things I wanted you to say only to wake up to her picture on your wall and his message on my phone and our silence avoiding, answering, and amplifying both. I wish I could wake up from this as well.
“Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another man more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest.”
The Sociological Cinema
There was actually research that was done that found that women who used an “I have a boyfriend/husband” excuse to reject unwanted sexual attention and harassment by their bosses were more likely to be left alone than those who used any other excuse (including “I’m not interested”)
Because men respect another man’s property (and that’s how they see us) than a woman’s autonomy.
Always reblog this.

I love passionate people
that light that enters their eyes when they start talking about something they love
the little arm gestures they make
the massive smile that slips onto their face when they realise someone’s listening
I just love passionate, enthusiastic people and I wish more people would be like that
This video is so, so important. A Jewish girl, and a Muslim girl, both poets, deliver a powerful piece on stereotypes.
Forget what we’ve been indoctrinated to think by our parents, schools, communities, religions and governments. We are all human. Let’s be the generation of peace.

“I can’t open myself up without falling in love with every person I like. There’s too much pain in that. So I stay closed.”
