Sure, Josh Groban does all sorts of Cool television appearances on Comedy Bang Bang and what have you, but this is still like my all time favorite thing which I find myself referencing in conversations a lot.
the other day I went to quimbys and resolved to live like a teenage girl again. leaf through all the zines. sit on the floor and read all the foreign fashion magazines. take all the free publications, from the alt weeklies to the college music rags. don’t judge, don’t be better than. read everything like it’s a clue on how to escape your town and finally find your people.
“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.”—Simone de Beauvoir (via wordsnquotes)
“There were many nights when I would worry myself out of a dead sleep and think Christ, I’m not doing it yet, and I’d think, doing what, and I’d think back, the thing I’m supposed to be doing, the special thing, I’m not special yet, and I’m going to die if I don’t do it, and I’d think well what is it but I refused to elaborate.”—The Only Time I’ve Ever Been To Connecticut | Mallory Ortberg (via christinefriar)
