College is such an interesting experience. I can go pee when I want or skip class if I just can’t drag myself out of bed. I grab coffee with a professor and muse about how much I loathed the last essay prompt. I take naps, like I did back in kindergarten, between classes and work. I make friends and lose them in a singular night. I pet dogs that roam around campus and feed the cat in the sewer turkey. I watch professors break down over their pre-school child being positive for Covid. I make out with vaccinated girls on the weekends and spend the next two weeks trying to forget how amazing they are and how I want their future to be just as bright as their smiles. I see people that would always enthusiastically high five me between classes in the hallways of my old high school now give me tight lipped smiles & brief head nods around campus. I scroll through endless posts from my best friends that are 4 + hours away, happier than ever without me around. I gaze at the clock on my birthday knowing that the friends that once texted me at midnight on the dot now barely remember to, if at all, wish me a happy one. I see people grow and change and forget themselves as well as everyone they left behind.
College is an interesting experience because it feels like riding a bike as fast as you can in the summer, wind tousling your hair and the path before you is limitless but it also feels like screaming into a tear soaked pillow, head pounding from crying too much for too long and your bedroom is the only place that isn’t falling down around you.

Frank Ocean // Queering the Map // Frank Ocean // Quora // Lemony Snicket // Marina Abramović // Charli XCX // Beach Bunny // Queering the Map // JP Saxe // Adventure Time
1. I care for you still and I will forever / that was my part of the deal, honest
2. Screenshot from Queering the Map: “We fell in love here, sneaking around your parents and dropping hands every time they came to take food we made or get coffee from the kitchen. We paddled around your lake, we had picnics, we had fun. I don’t miss you anymore, I hope you’re doing well and have found something and someone who makes you happy!”
3. I will always love you how I do / let go of a prayer for you / just a sweet word / the table is prepared for you
4. Question from Quora: “What does it mean when he says ‘You have a special place in my heart?’” Response: “It means that no matter what happens, even if you both are apart, even if you can’t see each other anymore, even if you both have someone in your hearts- your memories and deeds that you have given him will forever be remembered and cherished within him/her.”
5. I will love you if I never see you again, and I will love you if I see you every Tuesday.
6. GIF of Marina Abramović and Ulay at The Artist is Present
7. I know in the future / we won’t see each other / cold just like December / but I will always love / I’ll love you forever
8. Even when we fade eventually to nothing / you will always be my favorite form of loving
9. Screenshot from Queering the Map: “We had one of our very last dates at 82 Queen. While you were holding my hands and gazing into my eyes, you told me how much it meant to you to be in public with a girlfriend, and not be afraid that anyone would see. A few weeks later, I came out to my mom, and spent the next months on lockdown, stuck alone in my house. I had to end things b/c of it, but I will always treasure that night at 82 Queen. How beautiful you looked, the lovely sound of your laughter, and the way your eyes looked when you looked at me. I miss you.”
10. You weren’t down for forever and it’s fine / I know, you know, we know / we weren’t meant got each other and it’s fine
11. Picture of the treehouse from Adventure Time with text that says: “Time is an illusion that helps things make sense, so we are always living in the present tense. It seems unforgiving when a good thing ends, but you and I will always be back then.”

Yeah it's perfectly okay to cut people off if they drain your energy but remember that people are not plants. And you are not gardening. Okay, bad analogy but here me out. People are people. Not trash that you take them out because it's stinking and you're sick of it. Sure, there are very trashy people. But ask yourself this: Am I cutting this person out of my life because they suck or because they did this thing to piss me off and I don't have the energy or courage to confront them about it? I say this time and again. This doesn't apply for abusive people. Ghost them. Run for your life and sanity. But with everyone else? That person who's been your friend for 10 years or that boy you went out with for 2 dates, respect them a little more. Have a conversation. Say a goodbye. Don't just label every person who doesn't agree with everything you say and do and doesn't vibe with you all the time as "toxic" and write them off. It's very difficult to understand each other and we're often never on the same page as others. If we don't try, if we don't even encourage a discussion, how are we going to survive as a society? How are we going to remain emotionally intelligent animals? Do we really want to back track evolution? Can we really not just give a person a chance? Or are we so woke that we are going to post about boundaries and mental well being and compassion on our Instagram stories every week but forget that, rather willfully ignore that, people are not to be discarded at the first sign of something unpleasant or inconvenient.

today, i am thinking about how one time, my mother picked me up for the last time and neither of us knew it was the last time / how my rainbow hair ties clanged in her hands like newton's balls as she did my hair for the last time / how i can't pinpoint when but one day my best friend called my landline number for the last time / how we shared the headphones of her ipod together for the last time / one day was the last day i rode my bike around this particular block / waited at this particular bus stop / cried over this particular boy / and even though there would be more blocks and bus stops and boys / they aren't the ones i had for the last time and didn't even know it was the last time / i wonder if i would have done anything differently if i knew it was the last time / would i have held my mother a little tighter / or played that song one more time? / i wonder should i have done anything differently if i had known / but i didn't / childhood, growing up, is a series of last times and none of us ever know it at the time
