"…Writers remember everything…especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he’ll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar. Art consists of the persistence of memory."

"How do you survive? You just do. There is no other choice, no other viable options. You throw yourself into it, head first and make a mess along the way. Gain a few too many scars, break some things, mend others. Eventually, you find yourself with a couple of friends and a few precious tools. You just have to. You will."

hallow-queer:

I think if anything “killed the cat”, its comparison. I try not to compare myself to others, particularly in terms of art, because everyones journey is different. Some ppl have resources I dont, some have had more training than I. If you simply measure yourself to others without considering how far you might have come, youll always feel second-rate. If youre doing the best you can with what you have that is enough

"Have you ever noticed that humans have made it so difficult and complicated to “survive” in this world? It’s a vicious cycle. You go to school, and try really hard, so that you can get into a good college, and then you try really hard at college to get a good job, and then you try really hard at your job, so you can make money. And then your kids do the same thing. And everyone just keeps on doing this and no one even stops to think WHY they’re doing it any more. Everyone just does it because it’s what you’re supposed to do. And like, before, when the human race had just started, the goal was to just SURVIVE. People just lived. I mean, that’s what really matters, right? Survival. Because after you die, it doesn’t matter what college you went to."

"An intellectual? Yes. And never deny it. An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. I like this, because I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched. ‘Can they be brought together?’ This is a practical question. We must get down to it. ‘I despise intelligence’ really means: ‘I cannot bear my doubts.’"

Yesterday was my last night with my family for about four months. These two especially, I’m going to miss my cuddles from, along with their hilarious and unreal personalities, and all the comfort they’ve given me. I love my pups! Call me crazy (*beagle crazy), whatever. ;) #nationaldogday #iguess #crazydoglady #beaglelover #family #nomorecuddles #4months #instaoverload #instaaddict

This semester is going to be one full of creativity and generating new work! Glad to be back, making progress toward the art I love. Although, it’s as difficult as always to settle on imperfect or unrefined material while creating. I’m hoping I can learn to just enjoy the process. ;) #creativewriting #major #dance #minor #explore #create #experiment #enjoytheprocess #college #cgcc #day1
