“You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect.”—T.B. LaBerge // Things I’m Still Learning at 25 (via karengillan)
So I messed up my sleeping schedule and was wide awake at 3am. So by 530 in the morning, I have caught up on all my social media, cuddled with Meeko, taken a shower, made a yummy breakfast and gone for a run (which became a run in the rain). I still have to go to Orientation day 2 for Disney later and then off to Magic Kingdom!
So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
I can feel Meeko sleeping on my legs and purring. Meanwhile, on the phone, Joey is breathing heavy because he waited till I got off work so we could tuck each other in and fall asleep together. Tonight is really good.
Strangest/longest Starbucks order you've ever made/served?
Weirdest will always be the matcha waters because they are disgusting and I don’t understand why you would want to drink them. I know why they are ordered though, because they cost like $0.75.
Longest would have to be this woman Tina, who we knew by her voice. She would come over the speaker and said “Can I get 5 shots.” This means she wants 5 shots of espresso in a grande cup with 3 raw sugars, 3 honeys, and steamed breve to the top. She also wants two grande in vent cup coffees with 8 raw sugars each and steamed breve to the top, and a grande coffee with 5 raw sugars, two shots and a stemmed breve topper. It wasn’t that it was hard, but opening all the raw sugar was annoying and the shots took a long time to pull.
i don't think that anon was saying it's not okay to want to see your family. i think the point their trying to make is that you just moved and you are already talking about going back.
Okay, but I’m talking about going back in 2 months. Not next week, not tomorrow, but two months. What is the big deal?? It’s Thanksgiving, I’m (not) sorry if I don’t want to spend it in Florida. I’m missing why it seems like such a SHOCKING thing to be around family for the holidays????
I’m also thinking about going to Puerto Rico and probably Georgia at some point. Is this wrong too? I’m going to see friends, is this more acceptable a reason?
I’m not spending your money, so don’t worry how I spend mine.
sometimes i’ll be up late at night and i’ll think to myself “i’m not that great, i have no talents, i am essentially useless, and i look awful,” but then i remember that i’m probably 10 million times funnier, more thoughtful and happier than i ever dreamed of being a few years ago and that life is short and i have many years of experiences ahead of me and its all cool
lol did that anon try to make you feel bad for moving to Orlando because you said you wanted to go visit you family for the holidays??? What even
Hellllooooooo Cassie! I’ve actually been assuming this was you, but thanks for confirmation. I’m failing to see why family and holidays seem to be such a foreign concept to that person.
If you want to critique my life for fast decisions there are plenty to choose from: getting a cat, moving out, getting any of my tattoos, taking months off of work because I just didn’t want to be there, getting piercings, dating boys, and doing anything I did in high school.
Moving to Florida was actually first brought up to me in March by my friend Becca, so it, in reality, was one of my more thought out choices in life.
Also I miss you and you should visit sometime…when you have money…and when airplane tickets are cheap :D
not your move to your apartment but your move to orlando. i'm only thinking it was a fast decision since your already talking about coming back for the holidays when you've committed to moving to florida. it just seems like you wanted to get out instead of think through the problems, at least from your tumblr that is.
I want to go home for the holidays because that’s time that is supposed to be spent with family. The holidays this year are going to be especially rough for my mom because we lost my grandma back in May. I want to be home so I can be there for her. I don’t see why wanting to spend holidays with my family means that I moved to Florida too quickly.
I moved to Orlando because I am happy at Disney; not necessarily that I was running away from problems. I felt more confident that I could make the life that I really wanted for myself in Florida. That’s why I came down here. I didn’t run from Chicago because I had problems there that I had to escape.
I love my family and am close with my parents and my brother, why wouldn’t I want to see them after a few months apart? And after talking to my mom, I might go up there for Thanksgiving and they might come here for Christmas. I have a strong family connection and will always want to see them.
out of curiosity did you think your move out all the way, or did you just want to move out?
Which move? My move from Chicago to Orlando or my parent’s house into my first apartment? I’ve moved twice this year, within 6 months of each other.
Short answer? My move into my first apartment was kinda rash, but it happened and I learned. I loved my first apartment, but I went through a lot of emotional/relationship drama there, which kinda messed with my experience. My move to Florida was thought out, but right now I’m living with roommates that I didn’t know before. I just needed to get down here and this place works for now.
“We’re not saying that you should give up everything in your life this second, buy a ticket, and pack your backpack. Although you can if really want to, if everything inside of you is telling you to do so you should listen. But we’re saying that when you choose to strip away years of unnecessary baggage, you’ll find freedom. We’re not saying that you should take the risk and leap, then everything will always be peachy and perfect. It’s never like that. But what we’re saying is, you should allow yourself to be free. You should allow yourself to stand on the fringes of life, and dive into its alluring ambiguity. Even if it means facing your fears. Even if it means making sacrifices. Even if it means letting go of things you’ve held onto for so long. Even if it means having to let go of people you love. Even if it all terrifies you. We’re saying open yourself up to the world. Embrace all of its worth. Let its teachings seep into all that you are.”—http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stephanie-dandan/why-we-travel_1_b_4776068.html (via makethemdream)
I want to go home for Thanksgiving, but then I remember that Christmas is right around the corner. And for thanksgiving I will be working at Disney and being part-time I most likely will not get the days off. I’ve done the holidays down here before and they are depressing. I want to be in the cold and surrounded by family when the holidays come!
