I like that library books have secret lives. All those hands that have held them. All those eyes that have read them.
I have been waiting so long for this gifset for so long you have no idea
I’m home for the weekend and my mom and I are listening to Disney music and I’m going to try to work on my revisions for my portfolio and basically, I’m just trying really hard to focus on the positive sides of all of these crazy things that are happening in my life, instead of thinking about how sad they’re going to be in ways.

I need to tell myself that this tie is not an end to something. I remind myself everyday that an obligation can be an opportunity, and that attaching myself to one four-month stint far from home is not the same as having my entire life planned out.

I just need to remind myself that it’s not a death sentence, that the world is full of doors and paths and currents and that I can take whichever of them speaks to me, whenever I feel the pull to do so. I need to remind myself that nothing is inevitable, anything is possible, that I don’t necessarily have to be on my own forever, and that I can if I want to be. I need to remind myself that I can do anything, that I only need to depend on myself, and that even when it’s hard to believe, it’s true. And I will always, always, have writing as an escape hatch.
