Highgate Cemetery, 31 March 2014.

It’s haunting. Knowing you’re in the middle of a huge, living, breathing city, but standing in the mist of over a century old graves. The narrow paths, the vines clinging to trees and gravestones, the calm and quiet; it’s sad and beautiful and I fell in love with it. It gives you time to think and to breathe. I hope to come back again soon.

(via mercurieux)

"What men mean when they talk about their “crazy” ex-girlfriend is often that she was someone who cried a lot, or texted too often, or had an eating disorder, or wanted too much/too little sex, or generally felt anything beyond the realm of emotionally undemanding agreement. That does not make these women crazy. That makes those women human beings, who have flaws, and emotional weak spots. However, deciding that any behavior that he does not like must be insane– well, that does make a man a jerk.

And when men do this on a regular basis, remember that, if you are a woman, you are not the exception. You are not so cool and fabulous and levelheaded that they will totally get where you are coming from when you show emotions other than “pleasant agreement.”

When men say “most women are crazy, but not you, you’re so cool” the subtext is not, “I love you, be the mother to my children.” The subtext is “do not step out of line, here.” If you get close enough to the men who say things like this, eventually, you will do something that they do not find pleasant. They will decide you are crazy, because this is something they have already decided about women in general."

i will be forever fond of & deeply pity the guy from bike louisville who just couldn’t get anyone to count bike racks for him

it was probably the most embarrassing meeting of my life as the rest of my group showed up two hours late and i sat there the whole time but. i still contemplate that guy & his bike racks every time i see them and i have more than once thought about volunteering to count them myself now but i don’t know if he ever got them counted it’s been like three years

i still have his email. maybe some day i’ll do work w bike louisville out of years-old regret & pity for them

detroit made it to the playoffs and this was the scariest year bc i literally had not realized that it was POSSIBLE to not make it to the cup playoffs until like, fucking last year

this is the wings’ 23rd straight playoff appearance which is longer than i’ve been alive i literally do not know how to cope with them not going

This was one of Steve’s biggest sources of guilt, the fact that out of his whole crew of Howling Commandos were these guys that he convinced to come into battle with him. It’s the one guy that didn’t make it back, and that was the one guy that was always there for him.

Her picture was on the back of a pack of cigarettes
When she touched him he turned ruby red
A story that they’ll never forget”
