I hope you like it and thanks for letting me use your poem (:

I forgot to post this, but here is a rad picture Arwa drew to accompany something I wrote. Pretty sweet.
(Don’t ask me why her tumblr has no posts… it’s a mystery. Her instagram under the same name is full of killer art though.)

"Honey, it never stops"


Last night had a tumblr meet up with the one and only, thedbldee!

All we did was sit at the bus stop and talk but I’m not exaggerating when I say he’s an incredible person. I’m extremely fortunate to have met him. I’m also very proud of him. I can also say that I am so grateful he’s chosen to have me be apart of his life.

Wherever it is that life takes him I know he’ll succeed. Such a rad night.Thanks for being my friend. :)

This happened. This was awesome. Putting a flesh and blood person to an online friend is such a cool experience.

You’re a gem, Savannah. Thanks for letting me spend time with you!

I don’t give a single fuck how attractive you think you are/aren’t. Self-perception is always flawed, and I know you are a diamond in your own way, in every way, despite what you may feel about yourself.

Talk to me or don’t. Creep guiltily or without shame. You’re welcome to either option.

"Summer nights are dimly lit balconies and sprawling restlessness, when a walk to the seaside feels like coming home, and youthful dreams come to life on a grand scale. Nothing ever goes wrong in Summer, when a person can have their heart broken one hundred times and still fall in love all over again, before Fall comes to sweep up the disregarded pieces." - "a quickening in the air" | Derek Deyling
