At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare.

yesterday the boy and I were talking about what would happen if he was accepted into a med school that was far away and it was kind of sad? we agreed that if we ever were to break up we would try to end it on amiable terms but I really hope that doesn’t happen even if we did have to resort to a ldr because everything has been going so well
although I don’t blame him for being daunted by that because every ldr he’s been in has turned out to be shit but I hope he’d at least be willing to try, you know
man oh man oh man

alert: I want to quit this internship how do I do this


ya hes cute…….but is he conscientious of the social inequalities and corruption in hierarchies of power that plague this world

my brother used to be this chubby lil kid with those glasses that would get darker in the sun and idk he was such a dork
sometimes I wish he’d stayed that way

Anonyme said: does your brother know about feminism he worries me

he’s actually pretty ignorant when it comes to these things tbh and he also probably wouldn’t give a shit which kind of makes me feel like a failure as an older sibling
he’s a very stereotypical jock, basically
I mean I know he has the basic “rape is bad” etc etc mentality down and he definitely shows concern when I have to go somewhere alone at night but he and my other brother still make rape jokes allllll the time and ugh
believe me, I’ve tried
