a life built on secrets

It is now forbiddento not smilein the face of adversity;to stop fightingfor those who you love;to abandon it allbecause of your fears;or to give up in makingyour own dreams come true.It is now forbiddento pretend we don’t needunderstanding each other;to place less valuein the lives of others;to ignore each of ushas a unique path to joy…It is now forbiddento give up on happiness,to abandon optimism,to quit improving ourselves;to believe the worldwill be a better place without you.
It is forbidden by Pablo Neruda

So Many, So Little

So many interviews this week. So little time to “study” for them. So many requests via txt/email. So little patience to respond to all in a professional manner. So many personal problems. So little time and battery life to actually address them. I’m not sure which situation is worse.


Sometimes you stop talking to someone because you keep telling yourself that if they wanted to talk to you, they would.

"The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready."
