I have quick lipped
There is a handful
I don’t need the possibility of death
There will never be a perfect balance,
There is nothing simple about this.

“We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving… We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins… We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive as our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, ‘You can be anything,’ and we heard, ‘You have to be everything.’”
– Allie Brosh, Author of Hyperbole and a Half (via bhenchodpatriarchy)
“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.”

I'm an introverted nerd with a perfectionist complex and an aspiring slam poet. Pitt 2017. I dabble in all sorts of interests. To name a few: TV show binges, knitting, Indian culture, contemporary art, botany, song lyrics, tattoos, and sometimes fashion. Student by night and barista by morning; cuddle with me and I'll write you poetry. (I'll let you pretend it is about you.) I'm living on black coffee and prayer, so tell me something sweet to get me by.
