"I think people expect too much from marriage today,” he said. “They expect perfection. Every moment should be bliss. That’s TV or movies. But that is not the human experience. Twenty good minutes here, forty good minutes there, it adds up to something beautiful. The trick is when things aren’t so great, you don’t junk the whole thing. It’s okay to have an argument. It’s okay that the other one nudges you a little, bothers you a little. It’s part of being close to someone. But the joy you get from that same closeness – when you watch your children, when you wake up and smile at each other – that is a blessing. People forget that."

Mitch Albom

Think I’m officially nocturnal. I think something has to be done about it but maybe not tonight.

I had a pretty crap day, got more angry than I should’ve done and argued with nearly everyone. But… I just rekindled a friendship that I thought was lost forever. That’s gotta be worth a smile, right?


PS. For Bethy, who’s feeling down at the moment, and who I can’t comfort because my phone is credit-less… I love you, I love you I love you I love you. You’re beautiful, please never forget that, never forget how perfect you are. <3

And sometimes I wonder, can you feel my eyes on the back of your head? Can the hunger in my eyes penetrate your mind, your soul?

You turn around, your eyes meet mine. I throw a nervous smile your way, try not to look too desperate. You smile back, that beautiful, beautiful smile of yours. And here come the feelings I thought I’d forgotten, flooding back. Stronger each time, each time I think maybe they’d faded a little, I see your face just one more time and I remember. I remember everything. All the memories. What I think of all the time, that you probably don’t even remember. I let them wash over me. Both happy and sad. More happy than sad. So I still don’t know whether to laugh or cry tonight.

et elle préfère sourire, même quand elle est triste

i showered :O

someone get me a medal or something?

so, avril lavigne’s released a new song, ‘smile’. she’s 26 now, but still partying hard like she was 10 years ago… gotta admire that enthusiasm and energy. but i did think her music would mature a little bit - “you know that i’m a crazy bitch, i do what i want when i feel like it” :P ah well. i’m starting my chemistry unit 3 revision now. wooh, a subject i actually like!


"Ma vie est un désastre, mais personne ne le voit car je suis très polie : je souris tout le temps."

I wish you knew how much courage it took me to give that to you today. I want you to know that I meant every word… but so much was left unsaid. I hope it made you smile, because your smile is priceless. It’s just so beautiful. You’re so beautiful.

Why do I feel like I need you to live?
