“For the first time in longer than I can remember, I feel peaceful. Not happy. Not sad. Not anxious. Not horny. Just all the higher parts of my brain closing up shop. The cerebral cortex. The cerebellum. That’s where my problem is. I’m now simplifying myself. Somewhere balanced in the perfect middle between happiness and sadness. Because sponges never have a bad day.”—Chuck Palahniuk, Choke (via larmoyante)
10: What I did yesterday I was in the sun for four hours and realized how cute Wheaton boys are. Just kidding.

7. What I want to be when I’m older: I want to be happy, kind, and compassionate. A Professor of Modern Art in a college like Smith. A painter on a lonely day, a writer at night. A better sister. A mother, a wife.
“Pluto is interesting because it’s fixed on its moon, Charon, and they rotate around each other, constantly staring at each other affectionately, which is kind of a beautiful metaphor but I think that’s one of the reasons why it was demoted. Because I think now to be a proper planet you have to command the authority of others and because the moon and Pluto are sort of existentially attached as equals neither of them can be considered a planet. [Pauses] Sad, but true.”—Sufjan Stevens on why Pluto had to be a dwarf (via foxandfayvel)
