Being legitimately excited about what you’re gonna have for lunch tomorrow…
I had no idea a person was so many things, that her abduction from my life would leave such numerous and varied voids. It’s not hearing her voice, it’s not smelling her hair, it’s not seeing her things in new arrangements in her closet or on her nightstand, it’s not seeing her car move for months, it’s not seeing her favorite foods diminish in the refrigerator or pantry, it’s not being called on my various omissions or commissions. It’s realizing that it doesn’t matter any more if the sheets are tight and wrinkle-free on the bed, that no one leaves the cap off the toothpaste any more, that no one says, “What’s wrong?” if I don’t speak for half an hour, that no one’s reading all those Humane Society newsletters and Pottery Barn catalogs that keep coming in the mail. It’s realizing that this is forever and still not believing it. It’s knowing I could pour a bucket of purple paint over the stair rail into the hallway below and nobody would be upset. It’s knowing I could bring home ten dozen red roses and a string quartet and nobody would be happy. It’s hard and it’s relentless and it’s got more facets than a crateful of engagement rings. And every time I know, I just KNOW, that I’ve plumbed the final depths of it, I find some new trench, some new surprise.
All I can say is if you have someone you can share with, someone who cares about your life and wants to be involved in it in some way, any way, then share. Share, share, share. If a day comes when you’ve got no one to share that day with, nor the next nor the next, that’s when you will know what you don’t want to know. That even the best life can be hollowed out in a moment or in a week or in four months.
One may be the loneliest number, but there’s an equation that’s lonelier still:
2 - 1 = 1.
Somebody ought to come up with a new way of doing math.
My boyfriend gave me my Xmas presents early. He got me all three seasons of Community on DVD, and then an iPod touch with a penguin case. Because I’m his penguin. FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELS.
P.S. in addition to the iPod he taught me how to download music off of Youtube. CAN WE JUST FOR A MINUTE
My boyfriend, wearing his birthday present. It has little loops and a pocket slit for earphones and also looks amazing on him tbh
“I hope we make it to an era of science that lets us add extra years to our lives.”
Why, so we can be together even longer?
Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment—their body is alive, there’s a light in their eyes, something—that makes you think, “I just really love you.” It’s a weird sensation to think this, but it’s pretty awesome that we can feel this way about another being.
I experience this feeling on a regular basis.
