"The More You Give the Less You Need"

Dear Summer, 

How long does real love wait? Or are there different shades of great? 

Wish it could of been the way I dreamed, but now I find myself awake in the arms of new love. Confused by the haze of your memory, because your gaze speaks so loud and clear.  Yet you continue to refuse to move. 

I’m a lover and a dreamer. I chase the wind, so though my heart will always feel a little pain when your around I am not afraid to try new things.

The same way I wasn’t afraid to love you and I waited…But can I really wait in vain? Like Bob once said I am no puppet on a string. I don’t mean to turn our love to a fling, but you chose that route. Instead of seeing the truth in front of you. 

I fought with all my might, but it feels like I’m waiting for nothing cause all you say is nothing. All you do is nothing. You give me nothing.

I exhale with any ounce of hope, but I need to breathe again. Ready for someone else to catch my fall. I don’t want the rocks that awaited me with you. 

Thank you for being a beautiful song in the distance. You were my perfect dream. You could of been my everything. I take back my heart. I hope you tangle your strings in someone new and find everything thing you didn’t find in me. Cause in the end we are always better off… 

Our season is over.

I appreciate all the love in my life from friends, family, and myself… but at the end of the day when your alone at night you just want someone to cuddle with.
Then I realized that’s why we long for relationships… cause your boyfriend or girlfriend would be the one you call when you’re alone. Friends and family aren’t always best for spooning, cuddling, etc.

20 Things To Know By Age 20.

heyfranhey:

blottoflower:

1. The world is trying to keep you stupid. From bank fees to interest rates to miracle diets, people who are not educated are easier to get money from and easier to lead. Educate yourself as much as possible for wealth, independence, and happiness.

2. Do not have faith in institutions to educate you. By the time they build the curriculum, it’s likely that the system is outdated– sometimes utterly broken. You both learn and get respect from people worth getting it from by leading and doing, not by following.

3. Read as much as you can. Learn to speed read with high retention. Emerson Spartz taught me this while I was at a Summit Series event. If he reads 2-3 books a week, you can read one.

4. Connect with everyone, all the time. Be genuine about it. Learn to find something you like in each person, and then speak to that thing.

5. Don’t waste time being shy. Shyness is the belief that your emotions should be the arbitrators of your decision making process when the opposite is actually true.

6. If you feel weird about something during a relationship, that’s usually what you end up breaking up over.

7. Have as much contact as possible with older people. Personally, I met people at Podcamps. My friend Greg, at the age of 13, met his first future employer sitting next to him on a plane. The reason this is so valuable is because people your age don’t usually have the decision-making ability to help you very much. Also they know almost everything you will learn later, so ask them.

8. Find people that are cooler than you and hang out with them too. This and the corollary are both important: “don’t attempt to be average inside your group. Continuously attempt to be cooler than them (by doing cooler things, being more laid back, accepting, ambitious, etc.).”

9. You will become more conservative over time. This is just a fact. Those you surround yourself with create a kind of “bubble” that pushes you to support the status quo. For this reason, you need to do your craziest stuff NOW. Later on, you’ll become too afraid. Trust me.

10. Reduce all expenses as much as possible. I mean it. This creates a safety net that will allow you to do the crazier shit I mentioned above.

11. Instead of getting status through objects (which provide only temporary boosts), do it through experiences. In other words, a trip to Paris is a better choice than a new wardrobe. Studies show this also boosts happiness.

12. While you are living on the cheap, solve the money problem. Use the internet, because it’s like a cool little machine that helps you do your bidding. If you are currently living paycheck to paycheck, extend that to three weeks instead of two. Then, as you get better, you can think a month ahead, then three months, then six, and finally a year ahead. (The goal is to get to a point where you are thinking 5 years ahead.)

13. Learn to program.

14. Get a six-pack (or get thin, whatever your goal is) while you are young. Your hormones are in a better place to help you do this at a younger age. Don’t waste this opportunity, trust me.

15. Learn to cook. This will make everything much easier and it turns food from a chore + expensive habit into a pleasant + frugal one. I’m a big Jamie Oliver fan, but whatever you like is fine.

16. Sleep well. This and cooking will help with the six pack. If you think “I can sleep when I’m dead” or “I have too much to do to sleep,” I have news for you: you are INEFFICIENT, and sleep deprivation isn’t helping.

17. Get a reminder app for everything.Do not trust your own brain for your memory. Do not trust it for what you “feel like” you should be doing. Trust only the reminder app. I use RE.minder and Action Method.

18. Choose something huge to do, as well as allowing the waves of opportunity to help you along. If you don’t set goals, some stuff may happen, but if you do choose, lots more will.

19. Get known for one thing. Spend like 5 years doing it instead of flopping around all over the place. If you want to shift afterwards, go ahead. Like I said, choose something.

20. Don’t try to “fix” anyone. Instead, look for someone who isn’t broken.

I am not defined by vagina…

I am not defined my by when, who, and where I open my legs.

Stop trying to devalue my worth and significance as a woman by using the history of my vagina’s encounters as a form of measurement. Men are praised by all their notches, while women are defiled by every “use.”

Is it not obvious? Or are we that oblivious to the double standard that has left so many women alone with a scarlet letter imprinted on their souls.

I will not be ashamed or feel guilty or feel any less because I chose to open my legs. Father’s stop your own masochistic mindsets that makes you view your daughters as precious until the “forbidden fruit” has been experienced. Don’t you remember every woman you ever slept with? They are someone’s daughter as well.


This false notion of loss when a women opens her legs while boys become men when they penetrate. Why do men gain and women lose in these social contexts? This is a fallacy that has encouraged so much abuse. Praise my sexuality and experiences too, don’t defile my existence.

I am a woman who will not be ashamed of when, who, and where I open my legs.

…what sets this work apart is the life the portraits acquire after they are taken. For French “urban artivist,” JR… photographs are only the beginning of the creative process. Working with a huge team…he pastes enormous posters of the captured images in public spaces all over the world—on the walls of churches and mosques, the sides of buses, trains, favela walls and stairwells, on the bottom of an empty swimming pool. Sometimes the person pictured has an intimate relationship with the location; one woman he met had escaped a life sifting through rubbish in an acrid dump on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. She took him back there to show him it, and eventually allowed her photographed eyes to be pasted to the side of a rubbish truck, so that her gaze now looks out at the life she left behind.
