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 just realized that it’ll be the 20’s again in less than six years. I propose we bring back swing music and jazz attire.
“I’m a person that has high highs and low lows … A lot of things make me sad. Sometimes it’s almost easier to be sad. But you end up finding a balance and I think that as I get older I am learning what I can do for myself to make me happy.”

"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."
"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."
"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."
"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."
"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

“Being raised in an unstable household makes you understand that the world doesn’t exist to accommodate you, which… is something a lot of people struggle to understand well into their adulthood.

And an unstable childhood makes you appreciate calmness and not crave excitement.”

“I was 17 when I wrote that,” she reminds me. “That’s the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realise no one takes someone from you if they don’t want to leave.”
