    • People who see my pictures tell me that I am naturally good at photography, but this makes no sense. All photography is is capturing something that resonates with YOU. You are not making beautiful work by taking a picture. Rather, you're just taking a picture of something that was already beautiful. With that in mind, I fail to see how there is such a thing as bad photography.

  • I feel like I hate sex. I'm very frustrated with its existence and I really just wish it was something I didn't need to deal with. How can it be an ultimate expression of love when cuddling is so much better in every way?
  • I mean, you could be perfect on paper with someone, but then sex gets in the way of that. You aren't "sexually compatible" and everything is ruined. How is that fair?
  • I'm sad because I feel this way to begin with.
  • I'm sad because of why I feel this way.
  • I think I hate sex.
  • Satha-the-boyfriend says that it doesn't matter to him. It matters a lot to me, because I know it will matter to him. I know it I know it I know it.

  • One of these days your heart will stop and play its final beat.
  • One of these days your eyes will close and pain will disappear
  • When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
  • The boundaries that divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where one ends, and the other one begins?
  • It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.

    • For starters, I'm not actually a Christian. However, if you're refusing to talk to any Christians at all (and it doesn't matter what the reason is), then that's really just showing how close-minded you are.
  • "You can't be racist against white people."
    • By definition, a racist is someone who thinks another race is superior to another. It's kind of stupid to say that it's impossible that a black person can think that black people as a whole are better than white people (just for example). As a side note, I was bullied every day for being white . So, yes, it's possible for a white person to have problems because of their skin tone. "Reverse discrimination" exists.

Soon, we arrive in a broad plaza, dazzlingly white, where hundreds of small, elaborately dressed Geminin dash about, all wearing thick sunglasses and interacting with unseen people and things.

"This plaza is Gemini's Imaginarium." As Hysan explains, I remember. "People come here to interact with their own imaginations. When you're wearing the glasses, anything you envision in your mind becomes real . . . but only to you.

[...] "The technology extends the length of the plaza, and it only works when paired with those heavyset glasses. As long as you feel the weight of the glasses on your nose, you know you're still in the Imaginarium. It's the only way to keep from going crazy."

That I Like . . .

  • Bulls
    • I wouldn't say that they're my favorite animal or anything, but when I was out today and seen a herd of cows and bulls I realized that I admire how much they love to relax and enjoy the good things in life, just as much as I admire how they are willing to fight for themselves if they're provoked.
    • Then again . . . I'm a Taurus, the Bull of the Zodiac. XD So maybe I would say this.
  • Scarves
    • I've never had a scarf before--not one to use more as a "fashion statement" than to keep your throat warm in the cold. I realize now that I like them and want to start getting some. ^^

I won't lie: 2016 has thus far been a rough year, and I've never cried so much about non-alcoholic things, except for when I was a baby.

And because of that, when I actually cry because I'm happy, which rarely ever happens . . . well, I'd like to remember it.

Don't strive to be better than others. Strive to be better than your best self.

  • My best self does not fear her family or her friends. She trusts them not to be violent.
    • In the case where doubt creeps in, she expresses her worry in a kind manner, in a way that allows for people to help or be better.
    • In the case where her doubts are proven, she fixes the situation--and "fixing the situation" depends on the situation.
  • My best self expresses anger and hurt in a way that does not blame, but instead opens the door to either strengthening a good relationship or ending a toxic one.
  • My best self does not allow herself to end up in toxic relationships, and instead surrounds herself with kind-hearted and well-meaning people.

  • Mitch - My best friend. I've never had a friend like him, who is constantly wanting to achieve more and do better and further himself. It's something I really admire though, perhaps because I'm an INFJ personality type (and that's supposed to be a "thing" with us). I really love talking to him and everything.

My mom, for as long as I've known her, has never been a really feminine person. That's not a bad thing, but it's certainly had an effect on me, and I think maybe especially in my clothes. More or less my entire life up until the latter half of 2015 has been a "fashion embarrassment," but I'll try to remember some of the main ones:

  • wearing baggy jeans and a nice shirt for Picture Day
  • wearing all of those really so-called "old lady" shirts when I was in elementary
  • I pretty much always had baggy jeans, I swear
  • shoes that were always dirty because we could really only afford to buy one.
  • for a time I would wear nothing but black day in and day out. I don't actually regret this one as much as the others, though--I'll probably end up making a list on ...

"From the 200,000 disabled people murdered during the Holocaust, to the ugly legacies of eugenics and prison-like institutions for the disabled, to the 2016 attack against disabled people in Japan, both history and the present are awash with examples of governments and individuals enacting ideologies which aim to maintain a “pure” and healthy gene pool."

    • just some of the most important points, in my opinion.

× For 240 years, our nation’s call to citizenship has given work and purpose to each new generation. It’s what led patriots to choose republic over tyranny, pioneers to trek west, slaves to brave that makeshift railroad to freedom. It’s what pulled immigrants and refugees across oceans and the Rio Grande. It’s what pushed women to reach for the ballot. It’s what powered workers to organize. It’s why GIs gave their lives at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima; Iraq and Afghanistan — and why men and women from Selma to Stonewall were prepared to give theirs as well. So that’s what we mean when we say America is exceptional. Not that our nation has been flawless from the start, but that we have shown the capacity to change, a...

It is not known if there was a real Arthur, though it is believed he may have been a Roman-affiliated military leader who successfully staved off a Saxon invasion during the 5th to 6th centuries."

    • Some believe that he might have been a Roman-affiliated soldier who lead a British military against the Saxons.
      • A Saxon monk wrote a book on the Saxon invasion, however, and no one by the name of Arthur was ever mentioned.
