"I have always loved everything about you. Even what I didn’t understand."
Albert Camus (via theunquotables)
There are times when the actual experience of leaving something makes you wish desperately that you could stay, and then there are times when the leaving reminds you a hundred times over why exactly you had to leave in the first place."

Found some hope and company on Thought Catalog today:
"We are a culmination of all our experiences—both positive and negative. You are everything that has ever made you cry, and you are everything that has ever made you laugh.
… You are alive right now, and I am alive right now and that fills me with such joy.”
I just had a lonely
moment, she said,
her eyes distant.
I just want to be
with you, I thought,
and though she
was next to me,
she felt so far away.
For Brian Morin, 11, an extraordinary gateway to “adventure” lurks within an unusual place: the corner of a room in a central Fresno 7-Eleven convenience store.
Brian usually stops by five days a week to check out books from a children’s library inside, created by store owners Sushil Prakash and Josephine Kiran as an incentive to get children in the neighborhood excited about reading.
The catch to lure kids? A free Slurpee or hot chocolate for every book read and summarized in a short book report."
Well shit one place you’re sure to find ALL the kids ALL the time is 7-11. Flamin hots, slurpees, books? I’m impressed.(via thelifeguardlibrarian)
