  • "Finishing a book is bittersweet. You spend days getting to know the characters. Learning their nuances, their faults, their loves, their lives. They become your friends, acquaintances, enemies. And after the story ends, you miss them. You look for them in your own life, wonder where they’ve gone, you forget that they aren’t real. You fall in love with the hero and dream of him at night. The strange girl becomes your best friend. Their heartaches become your heartaches. You laugh when they laugh. And cry when they die. Eventually you realise they aren’t a part of your world, you were just briefly visiting theirs." (Whimsical Enlightenment)

  • There are approximately 350 different species of known sharks.
  • Sharks have been around for about 400 million years - long before dinosaurs even existed
  • Sharks can hear a fish swimming over one mile away, and can smell one drop of blood in a million drops of water.
  • A large meal may last a shark up to three months without it having to eat again.
  • A shark may lose and grow up to 30,000 teeth in its lifetime.
  • Two-thirds of the brain of a shark is dedicated to its sense of smell.
  • Oil in the liver is what keeps the shark from sinking as its density is lower than that of the surrounding water.
  • The Megalodon, believed to have lived between 25 and 1.6 million years ago, is speculated to have been as large as 30 meters long.

  • when justin and i were almost to manchester and our brakes started smoking so we had to pull over and wait on the side of the road for a tow truck to get us. the sky was beautiful.
  • the tow truck driver who drove us to manchester and told us stories of all the people he's met through towing. like the crazy lady who kept telling him she wanted to get pizza, and that "Paris Hilton isn't paying for this, Triple A is" and other weird shit and she lived in the middle of nowhere and she was the only one who ever scared him.

  • Lindsay - her cool tattoos, wide smile, and gentle voice
  • Carly - her skinny legs and big awesome personality

  • Katie - super chill and super cool, how she always had an ice pack tied to her forehead
  • Jeanpaul - an extremely good and giving friend, how he talked about politics while on shrooms, how much he respected Mateetee, his life stories

Things to Like about Cell Phones:

  • It's easy to contact whoever, whenever
  • When you get lost, a GPS app is very helpful
  • Drunk texting is fun
  • When you're in really awkward social situations, it's nice to able to just play on your phone

Things to Not Like about Cell Phones:

  • People are always in their 'bubble of technology' - I mean, when you're with someone in real life, you're not actually 'with' them because both of you are busy texting various other people
  • Everyone is so dependent on their phones and they get mad when people don't respond within five minutes
