how lucky we are
I have an indescribable fear of crawling. I live for those hot Georgia summers.

at first you’re like:
and then you’re like:
so you realize you should start packing, but:
you don’t even know what to do:
the thought of not seeing your mom for two months:
or your boyfriend or best friends:
shit ya got stuff to do:
but then you realize that it’s gonna be okay:
you’re going to Afrika after all:
so you start getting excited:
because this is happening:
and there’s no need to worry:
"When you are arguing against [God] you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all."

"I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about, I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking twelve miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people — Americans and Europeans — come back and go, “Ohhhh.” And the lightbulb goes on."

I really love my boyfriend. also, he is going to be the best at taking care of me one day. he is the strongest man I know, and I am so blessed he is mine.
"Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark."
