This is why i'm going to lose a scholarship: because i care too much about how people really feel so i put off everything, and wait, and wait, and wait for someone.
i'm waiting instead of writing several essays. Aren't i a fool?
It is a lot easier not to care. But to me, love is the only thing that really matters and makes a difference. So i wait for the next degree in which i can have my heart broken, so it won't hurt as much as it would if i took a leap. i don't know.
I too am waiting. For heartbreak, pain, misery, or joy I am not sure of yet. My whole life has been spent in 2 halves. The first half waiting, and the second half having to finally catching up much later. Usually much too late.
That is just sad. It’s things like that make me thankful for the childhood I had, and at the same time feel sorry for the children of today’s/future generations who won’t have the same experience as I did. What happened to innocence? What happened to just being a kid?
Sometimes, I wonder if anyone can see through my lies whenever I reply with "I'm fine" to "Are you okay?"
I never know what to say or how to respond to “How are you doing?”. I wonder if they have the time and or care to listen, and usually I just figure why bore them with things far from the truth, so I just say “fine”, “pretty good” or my usual go to, “I’m doin’ alright”.
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”—Marilyn Monroe (via aplacecalledfreedom)
That’s easy! I would without a doubt say Theodore Roosevelt. His persona, mannerisms, character and just the over all way he carried himself just represents who he is as a man. He is a man I hope to strive to be everyday. He was a gentlemen, loved his wife and kids, but at the same time wasn’t afraid of standing up for things he was passionate about; justice (social, economic, political and in general), environmentalism/preservation/nature. He was both classy and articulate while at the same time also a rugged outdoorsman. A man of faith, he was hardworking and also able to fight for whatever he set his sights on with great fervor and passion. I could go on for dayssss about Roosevelt, but he is essentially by all definitions of the word, a “Man”. A man I look up to a great deal.
