“I have been called the, “queen of not giving a shit.”
People think it stems from really not caring; on the contrary, it stems from the fear of caring too much.
To deny that, is simply to deny one’s humanity. Being the “queen of not giving a shit” doesn’t make one healthier or stronger or wiser or cooler or even happier. It just makes you feel less human. It makes you feel, less and less.

I’ve often heard that people only start wanting you when they think that you don’t want them. It’s true; I’ve lived by it. Whether its business or friendships or especially romantic relationships, the person who cares less always seems to be the person who has the most power. At least that’s what it might feel like for the person that cares more. But I question whether this is true or not.

3. Having a picnic out by the water on a day where it’s just sunny enough to feel warm on your face but not so hot that you can’t enjoy sitting still. (And where the bugs all miraculously leave you alone.)
4. Swimming in clear water, where you can see the bottom even when you are chest-deep.
5. Kissing someone you have really, really wanted to kiss for a long time, and having that whole tingly-body sensation when you realize that it’s just as…

I’m so much better when you’re around.
& I am truly so, so incredibly & unbelievably blessed I can’t even-. I don’t deserve any of it; but I am so thankful.
Really quite sad that summer’s coming to an end (last day to be spent on work too, sigh) but its been a pretty good summer & I wouldn’t have spent it any other way (although I do wish I could have spent even more time with my loved ones).
Gonna be s–t going back to school & all but I can’t wait to see everyone again. Approx 4 more months to freedom!(!!)
Hope everyone else has had a great summer too, xo;
