Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago
Dory:Something someone has told you that you can’t forget (two good things and one bad)
Two good things, uhm: (1) that I’m bright and (2) that I am managing to forget because I can’t think of anything right now..That I have pretty eyes, I guess. One bad: that I’m heartless.
Ariel:Where do you think you belong, and why?
Not to make an answer more complicated than it needs to be, but I think I belong in lots of places. I belong among my family, sat quietly and smiling at how they behave, I belong in a group laughing with my friends. I belong surrounded by books, hidden from the world, I belong in the ocean, swimming and getting lost, I belong in a lab surrounded by chemicals and chemistry text books, and I belong in her arms. I think I belong in these places because I feel it - they all feel like home, in different ways. I feel calm and safe and happy.
Flounder:Something that surprised you and frightened you. My own temper constantly does this, and my general bad moods.
Nemo:Your bravest moment. This is most difficult, because I don’t know. On the one hand, travelling to South Africa is the bravest thing I’ve done. On the other, just answering a question in class or talking to someone feels more difficult than that was on many days, and so I guess those are my bravest moments too.
Peter Pan: Something from your childhood that you still love. Uhm, not sure what angle to take on this one, but I’m gonna go with my childhood doll, Sarah. As a general rule I hate dolls, but she reminds me of my grandma and I still love her to bits.
Boo: A childhood hero. As a child I never really had a hero, but we once had to write about one in school and I chose my big sister to write about. So, I guess my big sister was my childhood hero. She seemed brave and social and funny and clever in ways I’ve always admired.
Seven Dwarfs: 7 things you like in the people around you.
1. I like the people around me to be comfortable enough with silence that they don’t always feel the need to fill it with meaningless noise.
2. For them to be witty but in clever ways, not mean ones.
4. A comfortableness with both deep conversations and meaningless small talk
6. The ability to accept differences in people and not make a big deal out of them
7. To be able to have arguments but not take them too seriously
Thank you for asking! :)
IF YOU THINK FOR ONE SECOND THAT SLAPPING A HALLOWEEN WRAPPER ON SOMETHING IS GOING TO MAKE ME WANT IT MORE THEN YOU ARE absolutely correct i’ll take 50.
i hate this
Miley: “Dad I have something for Tanners bug collection”
my uncle: “that’s great”
Miley: “it’s a bird”
my uncle: “no its not”
They let it go and it flew away just fine, so we’re wondering how she caught it.
she caught another bird.
update: she caught a squirrel today
She is gonna rule the world one day with this power
A huge thank you to whoever it was that recommended the Kingkiller Chronicle series to me! I’ve just read the first two books and I haven’t loved a series so much in ages, they hit me at just the right time in my life… Now if only the third book was out.
do u ever go to school confident in what ur wearing and then u actually get there and ur kind of just like wow well this was an awful idea
How do you survive?
You just do.
There is no other choice,
no other viable options.
You throw yourself into it,
and make a mess along the way.
Gain a few too many scars,
break some things,
you find yourself with
a couple of friends
and a few precious tools.
You just have to.
