If the boy who draws
Anonymous asked: So you have a crush on her, but you don't like her? Mildly confusing for me. Or just not enough to ask her out?
No, no, I like her quite a bit. I am just saying that I do think there can be a difference.
Anonymous asked: Tell us about them!
Very well then, anon. She understands certain aspects about me in a way that other people don’t. For the first time in quite a while, someone understands my interests, small little details about me, and personality. However, to clarify: I do think there is a difference between having a crush on and liking someone.
Anonymous asked: Do you have a crush on anyone right now?
Indeed I do.

Umbria. Viva Italia.
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently act frankly; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In other words, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.
How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterwards.
—Spanish Proverb (via lajoiedespetiteschoses)
You know, the attitude of all or nothing in regards to health and nutrition just bothers me. There are so many diets and lifestyles that say you have to avoid X or eat as much Y as you can. Quite frankly, I think this is crap. Moderation is the best policy, everything balances out. From all the long living people I know, they say moderation is the key to life, and it was obvious in their lifestyles that they didn’t overdo or deprive themselves of anything. For instance, my paternal grandparents both lived to be 92. That’s a long time. Both of them never denied themselves carbs or fat or what have you. Rather, they just did everything in balance with everything else. My other grandparents, unfortunately, smoked too much and both died from cancer. That being said, everyone is different; some people need more protein, others need more carbs, etc. It is about finding the balancing point in your life.
