“Sea animals living on land. He isn’t home in any place, now, and he’ll have to make one. Everything has always been given to him but he didn’t want any of it and it’s gratuitous but not gratifying. Without the wanting the having is meaningless.”—
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”—Jack Kerouac | Submitted by: royalsadness (via quote-book)
I love this song. It’s not my usual taste at all and you kind of have to be in a certain mood to really appreciate it, but I just think it’s really unique in how emotional/heartbreaking his voice sounds in this. Like, his voice isn’t perfect here; it’s kind of scratchy and low but its really emotional. Apparently he wrote it and recorded it while lying on his back on the floor of a high rise hotel in NYC at like 2 in morning (omg I love that image).
And one time, I was playing this in the background while reading a book that was really sad but wouldn’t have made me cry on its own, but I was legit bawling from the combination of the two.
The lookbook for Zac Posen’s line for target came out recently, yay! I actually really like a lot of the outfits. I don’t know whether there’s anything I’d actually buy (since I don’t have any place to wear them to), but I still thinks its way better than Rodarte (why was my favorite designer a total fail D: )
ETA: This collection also made my realize that I LOVE high heels + socks when its done right.
OK these are kind of late but I didn’t have access to my tumblr password for a couple days (lol) so here are my resolutions for the year:
1. Be more outgoing/social (particularly when I start college) 2. Exercise more 3. Be less monophobic (haha I think that’s what its called? At least that’s what Winnie called it. As in afraid to go to restaurants/movies/concerts etc. alone, not afraid of being of single) 4. Stop being addicted to the internet 5. Learn to play guitar (probably this summer) 6. Practice my photography/take a class/start looking up tutorials etc. 7. Read for fun more 8. See more movies instead of tv shows (I don’t know, I’m just not really a movie person. I see like an average of 5 movies of year or something, idk.) 9. On tumblr: reblog less, post more of my own stuff (either personal life, stuff i find myself on other sites, or stuff I actually photographed myself). I’m kind of getting annoyed that my whole blog is just reblogging pics on my dashboard. :/ It’s getting kind of boring.
