I love screwed up people, though. I could hang out with screwed up people forever. Screwed up people are great, ‘cause screwed up people have been through some stuff. They know what can happen. They know the problems. ‘Cause if you’ve been through a lot of shit in your life, you know every time you see the shit just about to hit the fan… you step to the side of the fan.

Blood doesn’t make you family. Hell, an only child can bleed. It’s the sharing of pain that makes you family, ‘cause you can’t really love a brother or a sister until you know that they’re as scarred and broken as you are.

Today I got told that steeping your tea to be really dark is cultural appropriation…this came from a white dude with dreads. Umm…okay?

You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity.

13 things my uncle told me before he died:
not everyone has the blessing to understand sadness
when waiting at the bus stop, it’s okay to smoke cigarettes
never touch anyone else’s clothes at the laundromat
it’s okay to miss the people who were bullets to you
when your grandmother asks you how you are, be honest
never be afraid to say “no” even after you’ve said “yes”
if someone tells you graffiti isn’t art, prove them wrong
remember people by their eye color not their clothes
you’re allowed to like dark chocolate with tangerines
don’t lie that you don’t have a lighter when you really do
turn your phone off every once in a while and find the moon
if you want a tattoo, don’t let anyone tell you not to get it
if you ever find yourself at the graveyard, read the names

So apparently the actress who plays Sylvia Rosen in Mad Men went to LMU. I know there was something I liked about her.
