we went to therapy for our relationship…does that mean we really tried? & even after all it fell apart at the seams from one day to the next.
Writing on tumblr makes me feel vulnerable lol ill stick to my dear moleskin 😬

I miss reading the box car children series
You’re the only person who was able to break down my emotional barriers. But now you’re the reason I’ve put them back up.
I wonder if she has ever seen your childhood photo book. Looking back, that is the moment I fell in love with you.
Last night was amazing! I went in to the Art show thinking it will be a place to view art from fellow inmates at a few facilities across CA and came out, literally, almost a new person. I was able to see PEP (Prisoner Education Project) from a different lens. CI is only a small part of the PEP coalition. This is ground breaking work because it has never been done. Breaking barriers for those who WERE at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Began the night volunteering my time at the entry boot, well first of all Sakura Ichi is such a delightful resteraunt/gallery -dim lights, amazing!! music playing in the background and every single person in there looked “unique” and nonjudgmental, like they had a story to tell and I wanted to listen. First, a spoken word poet from South Central LA spoke about people trying to get by and I was in aw “you are not alone” the second act! I was tearing up her words were so beautiful!! (I recorded both). Then I was relieved from the entry booth and was visiting in the gallery when I see this bright camera/video recorder and this guy said “these are from Ventura” & the interviewer replied w “oh are they?” and the kind gentlemen replied w “no I’m telling you they are” I, of course jumped in and said “how do you know?, I volunteer there” at this point it was a little awkward because the bright camera was in the middle of the gentleman and I but we continued having a conversation. He, Marcos Nunez, shared with me that he was in the Ventura facility and is now free! I told him a little bit of what I do there and when we stopped to catch a breathe the interviewer asked if he could interview me so we did that and then Marcos got interviewed. After that whole bit I sat down w Marcos and we talked about what he wished he had as a resource when he was in there and he told me he went to UC Davis to give a motivational speech! Amazing man! He introduced me to another amazing individual, Esche she was locked up for a couple of years, received her GED in jail and now is 23 attends USC! and works for a prestigious law firm. She proceeded to tell me about another individual in the room- the first time she got drunk ended up killing her boyfriend and getting something like 30 yrs in jail and lastly, met the producer of the highest grossing comedy, the hangover. He could have been anywhere in the world but he was there! That says a lot! Turns out he is an advocate for incarcerated youth. He also got Dr. Reese (founder of PEP) & President Rush (president of CI) in contact to make my volunteering experience at VCYF possible, I thanked him. Amazing night! Met great people, amazing music, learned soo much and when people ask why do you volunteer at a correctional facility? This is why! The opportunity to really help everyone because if you get to the man serving life he will get to the man serving 20yrs who will then make a change and it only trickles down from there. Anti Recevidism.
You are my science.
You make me believe in the atoms in your skin.
Now I believe in the chemistry in our kiss.
And now I believe in the molecules that make up love.
You are my science. I am a scientist.” —I Wrote This For You, The Laboratory In My Heart (via word-digest)
You used to love me,
and now you’re a stranger
who happens to know all
of my secrets.” —Clementine von Radics (via lotus-eyes)
