It’s so strange how we always tell ourselves to ignore the thoughts and opinions of others. We’re wired to be self independent and to “never let anyone bring us down”. At least that’s the way I try to be. But then, one day, someone walks into your life. Maybe they were there before, but you didn’t see them the way you do now. And in that single moment, that one person can make you or break you. A simple smile or nudge can send your world spinning, and a few monotone remarks can push you into darkness. Understandable, the vulnerability we feel when we love someone else is necessary. When you love someone, you trust that they won’t do anything to hurt you. The only way to find love is to love wholly and honestly. Sure, you’ll get kicked around, and maybe they won’t take your trust seriously. In that case, it’s time to move on and be vulnerable for someone else. In the end, vulnerability is what makes love possible AND worthwhile.

Every little girl dreams of having a perfect white wedding, and I myself, am no different. Call me a hopeless romantic; badger me all you want really. From the time I was able to lay hands on fairy tales until now, I’ve always envisioned a prince charming sweeping me off my feet and a happily ever after ending. Now that I’m older, my perception on life has undoubtedly been altered. The corruption of innocence is a trademark characteristic of adolescence, and my perfect white wedding moves further away from reality and into the world of fantasy as I approach adulthood. Is my wish going to come true? Or will it forever be a mere figure of my imagination? The inconvenient truth is that relationships don’t consist of red hearts gleaming from one’s eyes or giant festoons of pink roses lining the aisle of wedding ceremony. Come to face the facts, and relationships require constant hard work for maintenance. Perhaps this is why 1/2 marriages end in divorce in the U.S.; it was too much work. With experience, I’ve realized that it takes two mature individuals to make wishes come true, along with much patience, trust, acceptance, understanding, and of course, a whole ‘lotta love. As it turns out, happily ever after is the journey, not the end.

douchebag 101: throw punches at someone who is trying to use reason
most pathetic thing i’ve seen. that kid thinks he’s so cool, going around cussing and fighting. he can’t even run a stinkin mile. i respect that other guy for not fighting back because honestly, i would have wanted to beat the other kid up.

I’ll never stop learning how to let go.

i just went through all of my previous tumblr posts, from the middle of 8th grade until right now. Life can fly by you so quickly that you don’t take the opportunity to enjoy the smaller things in life. Despite all our extracurricular activities, our hours of homework, or anything else that we have to accomplish, I really think that we should set aside the time to just appreciate being alive. (:
