“Yea, I see a place where little boys and girls are shells in the oceans not knowin they a pearl. No one to hold ‘em while they growin, they livin’ moment to moment without a care in the whole world. Now, if I could help it I tell it just like it is and I may say some things that you don’t like to hear. I know this: that people lie, people kneel, people die, people heal, people steal, and people shed tears. What’s real, blood spills, gun kill, the sun still - rise.”—Talib Kweli (via stellablu)
Nothing is more pleasant than listening to someone express so passionately feelings they have towards something they worked so hard to teach.
Sal Castro co-author of Blowout was at my school today giving a lecure on public schools and how there aren’t enough spanish surnames in our textbook besides Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. Wow they even named a school after him (Castro, that is) He was such a charismatic speaker, really makes one want to strive & push against all odds.
There were a few of his former students in the audience, all of whom looked up to him and recognized him as their role model.
“People travel to wonder
at the height of the mountains,
at the huge waves of the seas,
at the long course of the rivers,
at the vast compass of the ocean,
at the circular motion of the stars,
and yet they pass by themselves
without wondering.”—St. Augustine of Hippo (via stellablu)
I want to become a better person..everyones definiton is different but I just want to be a better me in every situation and aspect of my life. What steps could I take in actually making this desire reality
“You build your world around someone, and then what happens when he disappears? Where do you go- into pieces, into atoms, into the arms of another man? You go shopping, you cook dinner, you work odd hours, you make love to someone else on June nights. But you’re not really there, you’re someplace else where there is blue sky and a road you don’t recognize. If you squint your eyes, you think you see him, in the shadows, beyond the trees. You always imagine that you see him, but he’s never there. It’s only his spirit, that’s what’s there beneath the bed when you kiss your husband, there when you send your daughter off to school. It’s in your coffee cup, your bathwater, your tears. Unfinished business always comes back to haunt you, and a man who swears he’ll love you forever isn’t finished with you until he’s done.”—Alice Hoffman (via atomos)
Hate that I do so much for you & you repay me with crap, I buy you everything you desire, drive you anywhere, let you use my car anytime you ask, let you borrow anything, give you advice, give you so much and here you are breaking my car tail light, breaking my keychain, throwing my phone around, breaking lamps, breaking the garage remote, this is the real world, News Flash! you’re about to be 18!! “adults” don’t act on emotions you have to contain yourself & think logically. People walk on eggshells around you & for you…you can’t have certain food, you can’t do certain things our whole family places you at the center. You’re nuts & frankly I can’t stand you.
“The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.”—Chuck Palahniuk (via stellablu)
White rabbit eating outside soo cute it's been in our backyard for about 2weeks :D

“‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written, because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot, wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have a feeling that they can’t hide.”—Rachel Cohn, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist (via stellablu)
Hate not being able to sleep, Hate not knowing the difference of whether I don’t want to sleep or not being able to sleep? Good day, can’t complain lol besides the fact that I got another! ticket yesterday! >:( not cool!, I just finished the deal with the last ticket & traffic school & crap & bam! again oh well, Guess that Horseshoe necklace isn’t bringing much of good luck. I hate being single!!! I know I should be & I know it’s the best thing and yadda yaddah yah lol but I just don’t like it, people tell me to just give you a chance but it’s far more complicated! or maybe it’s not & Im just making it like that because that’s what I do. I over analyze situations & think about them far more than I should, probably the reason as to why I’m up right now. We have nothing in common besides being nice people..lol great foundation to build a relationship on! ;) I’m such a sensitive freak! & I’m pretty sure I was black in my past lifetime lol
“I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else.”—Jonathan Safran Foer (via abimopector)
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”—Thomas Merton (via stellablu)
