my fall look today is winged eyeliner, plum lipstick, and a look on my face like i’m fucking your boyfriend and can’t wait for you to find out.
My fall look is simple liner with bold lashes, burgundy lipstick, a gleam in my eyes that let’s men know that I’ll suck their dick, their money out of their bank accounts, and the souls right out of their bodies.
“You will learn that sometimes human beings have to just sit in one place and, like, HURT. That you will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do. That there is such a thing as raw, unalloyed, agendaless kindness. That it is possible to fall asleep during an anxiety attack.”—David Foster Wallace; Infinite Jest (via allmymetaphors)
“Almost everyone in the novel disapproves of Carmen’s lowbrow affect and career as a physical trainer. She doesn’t care about art, or value the Posts intellectually, and therefore she is treated as a philistine. Straub cleverly pits the family’s snobbish attitudes toward Carmen against Bobby’s poor treatment of his girlfriend, which raises the question: what good is an intellect if you have a skewed moral compass?”—Kim Winternheimer reviews The Vacationers by Emma Straub (via therumpus)
“The biggest issue with equating the library with a Netflix for books is that it sends a false message that libraries are worth little more than $8 or $12 or $20 a month. That the services offered in libraries are little more than options to which people can subscribe, rather than actual services anyone can utilize at any time.”—Libraries Are Not a “Netflix” for Books | BOOK RIOT (via nationalbook)

“You just like the idea of me. You like the person I present myself under circumstances that I can control. I choose what I say and how I say things. It’s like being attracted to a fictional character in a book. They are scripted and made up. If you think about it, through writings, we all script and make ourselves up. I don’t share the person I become when I am upset. I don’t show you how I look like when I sleep. I don’t tell you about all the times I’ve made someone cry. All the guilty things I’ve done and the bad thoughts I’ve had.”—Han (via pearlai)
-my response when my Director caught me on the roof during a tech and screamed “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!”
I’m an actor in the show… but none of the *paid* techies were available to/capable of hanging a special. I was in half show makeup, a skirt and ballet flats, on top of the stagehouse of the amphitheater.
