I look so tall- I knew that those people were lying to my 12 year old self- telling me that drinking coffee was going to stunt my growth. I still drank the coffee and look at me now

We love studying social psych in a 100+ year old library at 10:40pm while listening to Spanish indie music in October as it rains softly outside under a lamp light and in a perfect, comfortable sweater

‘Song’ by Allen Ginsberg
The weight of the world
is love.
Under the burden
of solitude,
under the burden
of dissatisfaction
the weight,
the weight we carry
is love.
Who can deny?
In dreams
it touches
the body,
in thought
a miracle,
in imagination
till born
in human—
looks out of the heart
burning with purity-
for the burden of life
is love,
but we carry the weight
and so must rest
in the arms of love
at last,
must rest in the arms
of love.
No rest
without love,
no sleep
without dreams
of love—
be mad or chill
obsessed with angels
or machines,
the final wish
is love
—cannot be bitter,
cannot deny,
cannot withhold
if denied:
the weight is too heavy
—must give
for no return
as thought
is given
in solitude
in all the excellence
of its excess.
The warm bodies
shine together
in the darkness,
the hand moves
to the center
of the flesh,
the skin trembles
in happiness
and the soul comes
joyful to the eye—
yes, yes,
that's what
I wanted,
I always wanted,
I always wanted,
to return
to the body
where I was born.

You fell in love. That's the bravest thing one can do. You gave your heart to someone, let them hold it in their hands, and fearlessly gave them the power to break or caress it. You're brave.

They say that there’s a word for everything, abstract or physical. And yet I find myself feeling things so deep with my heart, mind and body, that I can’t name. I just know it’s here, it’s strong and it’s something wonderful.

Online Academia Gothic
• It has been a month since your professors welcomed you to the first class of the year and you are now emailed the timetable for your final exams next week.
• You decide to dress up to break up the monotony of the days, so you wear your favourite outfit and even add some accessories and makeup but when you sit down for your online class, you are somehow back in your pajamas.
• There were seven meals in the fridge last Monday. You live alone. There are seven meals again this Monday. You don't remember going out of the house.
• Your professors faces look more and more robotic every class. The next time you have a one on one meeting with your tutor, their smile seems like it's been drawn on. You wonder if you saw them blink at all.
• You are put in a project group of four. You all share the same first name. You never ask for their last names. Somehow it seems like you are doing all the work even though you meet every week.
• There is only one person in all of your class that keep their video on during classes. They are always there before you join and they are still there when you leave. They never speak but they always smile. The next time you joke about them to your friend, they stare at you blankly. Now that you think about it, it always seems like they are making eye contact with you through the screen. You never bring them up again.
• You think about what to wear tomorrow and then you notice that you have been experiencing a season a day. Tomorrow is a summer day even though it's supposed to be the middle of December.
• You decide to start an assignment on Tuesday which is two days away. You procrastinate for four days. But it is still Tuesday two days from now.
• "You look so different! ", you say to a friend on video chat, commenting on their change of aesthetic. They don't know what you're talking about. When you look back on your older photos to make a point, they look the same. Why is their aesthetic different in your memory?
• You go home for the weekend after two months. Your sibling is a foot taller than you last saw them. They smile at you politely like you're a stranger. Your dog barks at you.
• You don't know when the last time you spoke aloud was. But you know you have been communicating with your flatmate. The next time they enter the kitchen you look at them and you instantly know what they're thinking. You gasp in horror at the realisation and they telepathically ask you what's wrong.
