Inside and out, surreality Blinding white light of a deserted garden, polished grass green, no one in sight Enter and hear the silence Tweedles sitting in silence, not looking at each other or you Can’t tell them apart, these Dee and Dum, and the evangelical flowers Those lilacs with the gospel singing praises faces Humpty Dumpty sitting in the flowerbed… “Excuse me can...
Planning my tattoo
I started with one, and soon I’ll convince my parents to let me get another. It’ll be great: Chesh’s tail will lead to the next one, which will lead to the third, making a mural, and the third will lead to the crowning glory: a wrist tattoo (i’ll wait until a few years after i graduate, so I know what type of job I have) that says “listen” The anticipation is...
Nomnomnom.: My thoughts on parenting. →
pathwalker: I was conversing with one of my close friends and she told me some things that depressed her about the way her parents were treating her. I thought to myself, there are four kinds of parents: 1. The nurturers. Those who embrace their children, love them, and provide for them. These are people…

I’m science inept, so I’m confused now. I guess you’re saying that you trick yourself into thinking you’re more wired than you are? I understand that. The point of the fact was that caffeine wasn’t creating stimulation in you but dulling your drowsy hormones so that your stimulant hormones aren’t interrupted. That means that if for some reason you stop...
Caffeine Is Not a Fix-All
Apparently, it doesn’t get you wired, it just gets adenosine out of the way so that your natural stimulant hormones, dopamine and glutamate, can continue working. You can only get caffeinated to the extent that your body’s hormones allow…..there go my plans of thursday night espresso ragers….
LGBT YouTHink: Coming Out →
lgbtyouthink: Your parents are such a big part of your life, and it’s hard, lying awake at night and playing vivid scenarios of rejection, always wondering “Will they accept me?” “Are they okay with who I am?”. The answer is probably yes. You’re their children. Their own flesh and blood. Although the new… Great blog, please check it out if you are LGBTQIAetc., or if you know anyone who...
Shoot for the Stars
None of this landing among the clouds. Truth is, if you miss, you might land back on Earth. But it’s not the end of the world, and you can shoot again. If you give up after one shot, why bother making the attempt in the first place? Shoot for the Stars, even if you miss, you can shoot again.

thathipsterguy: A soldier named Nobushige came to Hakuin, and asked: “Is there really a paradise and a hell?” “Who are you?” inquired Hakuin. “I am a samurai,” the warrior replied. “You, a soldier!” exclaimed Hakuin. “What kind of ruler would have you as his guard?

When the Sun Rises
Fires burning, people laughing What if it all ended? Waves crashing, the sand is cold, they’re happy But you’ve already seen it. There’s a fin in the water, You cannot unsee what you’ve seen, you cannot wash this taste from your mouth. ——————————————————— ...
From the Tao Te Ching:
“The highest is one whose existence no one knows, The next is one who is loved and admired, The next, one who is feared, And the next, one who is hated. When his faith in them is not sufficient, They will have no faith in him. anxiously, he values his words, Fulfills his tasks, completes his work. The people all say, ‘And with us, it happened naturally.’”

I Don't Need It
You want though you have all you need And more All I need is this toxic blue telling me who to be And how It’s what I breathe, it’s where I find reprieve from these spills, this every day life It’s everything I’d give up all I have just for a chance with you, This once-in-a-lifetime to prove I can be a jewel in your crown You don’t need this, this snot...

badp: If you ask an atheist, “Where did the universe come from?” you might get any number of different answers. One atheist might say, “It’s always been there,” which of course is not possible because the universe has only a finite amount of matter and energy, and eventually it will use it all up.

In the Rag Doll
Tossing and turning, turning, turning Flipping me over, bending me back and forthback and forth Cutting me, stripping me, watching me: You throw me around like a rag doll, and every day I live this raggedy life I die a little inside, and you kill me a little on the outside. You took it from me, the gift that made me special, the little gem, the blood and the pain of the gift I had. I was cut...
