So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
— Jorge Luis Borges (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
Be patient with others. Be patient with their small annoyances, with their behaviour, with their speech, with their every being. Be patient with them. For your own sanity.
— (via moeyhashy)
We’re the middle children of history. No purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won’t.

Chuck, any advice for a 22 year old feeling paralyzed by fear at the cusp of adulthood?

chuckpalahniuk:

Every age has its own fear.  In childhood I feared bullies and the Vietnam draft.  In adulthood I feared failing at a career.  I feared the death of my parents — my greatest fear to date.  Please just accept that a greater fear will always arrive to replace the last fear. Then, regardless, do what you dream of doing. 

P.S.  In the photo recently posted of me holding the hand-lettered sign, I spelled my own name wrong.  I am an idiot.  At  times that is a blessing.

Solanin

After delaying finishing Solanin for so long, I’ve finally finished it. 

I think it’s a beautiful, timeless story. Asano Inio’s narration manages to capture the thoughts, struggles and worries, ephemeral moments of happiness, of life and death in a small extract of an individual’s life. 

You can connect with them. The characters are just real, ordinary people, who are just lost in life. And from what I’ve learnt, it’s okay to be like that sometimes.
