-I fucking love you.

I love you

Say it back.

You hate me.

LOVE ME


I never hated you, for that would be impossible. I wished I’d said I fucking love you too. I’ve never stopped.

Being worried isn’t going to help me at all but being productive will make my days much better. Although, I don’t know if I am going to have surgery, I do know that I will have the rest I need from such hectic months so atleast that will be nice LOL. That is actually so sad, I need to have surgery to get rest, god dang it. Anyway I need to chill the eff out and get my shit done.

- December 19, 2017

Reading this back makes me so sad because I thought pushing myself to work with no breaks and be “productive” was the best thing I could do at the time. The post also makes me laugh because who says “god dang it” or writes “eff” 😂, I clearly developed some weird vocabulary under stress. This is much of the same stuff I was feeling earlier. At this time I just finished my exams for the semester, started reapplying for grad school, and had to get a wisdom tooth surgery (for the first time I think? Considering I had to get two so far). These posts actually make me so sad in ways that are difficult to articulate. I understood the drive I had to excel in school and also gain admittance to grad school; which was my ultimate goal for years. I also understand that hard work is required in any aspect of life to do well, but the constant strain I felt mentally and physically at some point was not normal but I didn’t acknowledge that. I think I have definitely learned to pay more attention to my mental and physical health, to decide next steps and determine what will make me feel better. More importantly, I’ve become focused on NOT pushing myself past boundaries that will burn me out. It is something I am worried about and I hope I learn techniques to recognize if I am burning out and steps to prevent it! Feel free to share tips!

Things I have been doing to help avoid burnout: journaling, working out (as of recent) and talking about my feelings with trusted friends/fiancé has helped a ton! I’d also like to add that I used to be super active playing sports like volleyball and badminton, but ever since 2017 my activity was drastically reduced because it was hard to play team sports (money and time were the issue for me). I didn’t pick up any physical activity I really liked until this year, which is 2020. I started kickboxing and yoga. So don’t feel bad if working out isn’t for you, or if you haven’t found the right sport/activity for you. There’s a bunch of shaming culture surrounding physical activity because of gym rats and whatnot which I think is fucked up. You should do things that you actually LIKE doing, especially considering activities surrounding your body. Fuck the haters do you!

‘Achilles glared at him and answered, “Fool, prate not to me about covenants. There can be no covenants between men and lions, wolves and lambs can never be of one mind, but hate each other out and out and through … nor may there be any covenants between us, till one or other shall fall.”’

Achilles as portrayed in 'The Iliad,’ allegedly written by Homer

He was taken by inflexible Fate and the unrelenting grasp of the sea, pushed and pulled like sand in the tide; he danced and hid from life’s entrapping threads, but soon found that there are some things from which you cannot hide. The glorious shield sat there to rust, and the sword stayed sheathed; for the war was above and around him, and so the greatest warrior refused to spill blood or to bleed. But the battle found empty place in his heart, when he who loved was ripped from it; it was broken, scarred and soft, and the blood spilled into his vision; and then! I daresay Homer flinched to even write of the cruelty of his greatest mission.

no, it was actually quite easy to decide on Achilles! more complex blogs work well for this ask. thank you very much; I hope you enjoy it!
send me a 📚 if you want a poem written for a character from folklore, mythology or classic literature that your blog reminds me of!

You’ll never know just how many ways you hurt me, because you’ll never know just how much I loved you so damn much.
