Some emotional panic including inevitable hyperbole.

Not having your head confined to the bubble you’re living in can cause difficulties, like knowing of the existence of an outside world and wanting to go there but not being able to ever do that without bursting the bubble and making everything you ever had fall into the bottomless abyss.

I’m having, as they say, a bad day.

Some discontent. Diverse influences.

This “Everyday I Show” blog is truly the best thing I’ve found in a while. EXCLUSIVELY wonderful pictures. I want there to be more like this. I want to be aesthetically forcefed. Or something.
So random.

Hey Senorita!

Anyone feeling down? Just take a page out of these guys’ book!

I’m currently jumping around my bedroom in a similar manner while listening to Paul Simon and doing my spring cleaning. There is no particular reason to be in a good mood, but I just am. Thank you, music.
