birds by the snow

"Water, is taught by thirst.
Land—by the Oceans passed.
Transport—by throe
Peace—by its battles told—
Love, by memorial mold—
Birds, by the snow."

Every introvert alive knows the exquisite pleasure of stepping from the clamor of a party into the bathroom and closing the door.

Sophia Dembling - The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World  (via dianekrugers)

I don’t think I’m an introvert but I have a lot of introverted qualities and I love this moment too. But I think a lot of it is not knowing the company you’re with. If I’m with friends at a low-key party then I don’t want to leave. But if I’m with friends at a crowded party then, yeah, love the bathroom.

bursar account woman muttering numbers while calculating how much of my loans actually went through, once you factor in interest….. this is fun. 

update: she literally just laughed 

I always wanted to have a ‘tennis tan’ (a mild sprinkling of freckles / healthy-looking ‘bit of color’ [which is actually damage]) and think I may today. But first my face turned FLAMING red while my stepsister’s retained a beautiful glow. I’d put on a shit-ton of sunblock because I’m paranoid about my skin and then added sunglasses and purchased an overpriced visor. So the redness was from exercise and not the sun, but I still worried. 
It didn’t go away until after I’d splashed my face in cold water and swum in the ocean for 40 minutes (and scraped my legs on barnacles in the process, while trying to climb up a rock). 
ANYWAY. This has been about skin. I’m in Rhode Island and having a pretty good vacation — seems weird to go north from Florida to spend time at another beach. 
Everyone here is so pretty and I find myself comparing myself (not positively) against them. Excited to go back to normal civilization where not everyone has smooth skin & a tan & a lissome body & cover-ups from the same store. It’s honestly INSANE and I wish I had a friend here to make fun of it with me.

Some snaps from my Harry Potter Reread - Part 2 [Part 1]

i don’t know if it’s because i bought one the other day but i’m seeing crop tops EVERYWHERE. i said to one girl at disney, “did you get your shirt at h&m??” because i’d seen it there and she looked at me in confusion and her mother muttered something discouraging and grabbed her arm. I said to jack, “I don’t think they’re American.” I find that one thing about this country is that everyone is comfortable complimenting complete strangers. and she seemed perturbed. (obviously many people from other countries are huge compliment-givers-in-public and many americans are not, but still).
