Be brave and love me back

- I do want someone. Need someone. You're right.
- And?
- And... when I'm with you, I feel like I'm a better person. I feel happier. Less...alone. Less lonely. But it's not as simple as that, is it? Being with someone.
- Isn't it?
- No. I mean, I don't know. I mean, I don't think so. I mean... can't we just sit like this... for a bit?
- Yeah. We can. For a bit.


DIY lovely hair

How I wish my hair looked that stunning for just one day...

or build with them.

The Graduate

- Mrs. Robinson, you didn't... I mean, you didn't expect...
- What?
- I mean, you didn't really think I'd do something like that.
- Like what?
- What do you think?
- Well I don't know.
- For God's sake, Mrs. Robinson. Here we are. You got me into your house. You give me a drink. You... put on music. Now you start opening your... personal life to me and tell me your husband won't be home for hours. 
- So?
- Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?

First thing you asked us at the beginning of the semester was: "why are we here?". Well, I thought about that. A lot. We all have a purpose. And our purpose right now is to figure out our purpose, that's what college is. So...why college? why CRU? The truth is, I chose CRU because a friend of mine from camp was going here. Then I chose to rush a fraternity and I made new friends, and college has been everything I could have ever imagined it to be. So I kept thinking, why would I ever wanna leave this place? But then I realized that there's so much left to learn, an experience to look forward to. And today I'm graduating, hopefully. I'm hanging out to the real world with the love of my life, who was my purpose. So, today I'm here to graduate, and tomorrow... that's hard to say because I have no idea of where I'll be.




Manuale d'amore

... because, if it's an ex, if the guy of the kiss is an ex, then baby, you're just like the rest, when you feel lonely and abandoned you rather going backwards than ahead.


phoyo by me

I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me 
at my best.

Marilyn Monroe


all the ghosts that broke his heart


do as done and there is nothing left to be
turned out I'd been following him and he'd been following me 
do as done after it was over. we were just two lovers crying on each others shoulder


Alice in Wonderland

yeah, it's me

- Chesire Puss - she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. "Come, it's pleased so far" thought Alice, and went on - would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
- That depends a good deal on where you want to get to - said the cat.
- I don't much care where...- said Alice.
- Then it doesn't matter which way you go - said the cat.
- ... so long as I can get somewhere - added Alice as an explanation.
- Oh, you're sure to do that - said the cat - if you only walk long enough.

Lewis Caroll, Alice in Wonderland
