Meet Ru Paulie. Toot toot.
I’ve been having dreams that I move to NYC almost every night lately. I need a visit soon. Who’s with me?
"Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."
"If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time."
"For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth."
You guys, it’s snowing here & I’m freaking out. This is the second time I’ve seen it. Ashley & I drank hot chocolate & sat on the porch. It’s so quiet & magical.
I revisit this day in my head quite a bit lately.
On this day, I was curled in a ball, holding my legs tightly to my chest because I was convinced that if I didn’t hold myself together I would actually fall apart. I was on the phone with my aunt, crying too hard for her to understand anything that I said, so I mostly just listened.
But outside my window, it was snowing. I quickly got off my phone and ran to tell Sarah. We put on jackets and rushed outside. And we smiled. And we laughed. And we danced. Our neighbors looked at us like we had lost our minds, but being from Florida, it all just seemed so magical.
"Society has put up so many boundaries, so many limitations on what’s right and wrong that it’s almost impossible to get a pure thought out. It’s like a little kid, a little boy, looking at colors, and no one told him what colors are good, before somebody tells you you shouldn’t like pink because that’s for girls, or you’d instantly become a gay two-year-old. Why would anyone pick blue over pink? Pink is obviously a better color. Everyone’s born confident, and everything’s taken away from you."
