I don’t really post anything original on Tumblr too often. In fact, I haven’t even reblogged a funny sloth meme in like, weeks. But I’ve been feeling so full of words lately, and a fucking tweet or status update just won’t cut it. I don’t even really care if no one reads this; I guess it just feels good to write.
As we speak, I’m editing a retrospective piece for Alt Press on my all-time favorite record. I’ve been writing for AP for a month, and I’m already doing things I only fucking dreamt about. This is not a “toot my own horn” kind of party, but rather a call to arms. Find what you fucking love and defend it. Relentlessly pursue it. A girl, a job, a goddamn ice cream cone. Let it in and let it kill you. It will hurt, and you will doubt everything, all the time. But goddamnit, it will make you feel alive. It’s okay to fuck up; we are all so flawed, but thats what makes life so damn beautiful. Don’t ever apologize for who you are. Sometimes loving something so hard will make you sad. Sometimes you have to let shit go, and have faith that whats meant to happen will happen.
My friend and I were having a really in-depth philosophical debate about happiness and what that even fucking means. He said that you can’t consistently know what happiness is unless you have some sadness in your life. Great point, mate. There will always be darkness. But if we can all find that one thing or one person that makes every color a little brighter and everyday a little easier to get through, then that’s what really counts I guess. Always. Keep. Creating. Always. Keep. Rebuilding.
Dudes- I’m playing in a new Chicago band called Sleep On It. We released some music today on Facebook/Bandcamp. Scope it… it would mean a lot. Follow us on IG- @sleeponitband
Important Lessons “The Office” Has Taught Us [Click for more]
After 9 hilarious, sentimental and all around fun seasons of “The Office” it’s finally come to an end. We’ll miss you, Dunder Mifflin! Somehow you’ve made us all want to work at a paper company in middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania.
I’m all like,
I use all of these on a day-to-day basis
