“I feel most alive when…”
This is a tough one. Oddly, my first thought was “when I’m arguing”. This is odd mainly because I hate arguing. Debating, discussing, these are fine, but arguing makes me so unhappy and frustrated.
I guess that’s why it makes me feel alive: the reality of feeling so intensely is that you’re ALIVE. Many activities don’t ask you to feel, only to DO, so when I argue I am aware of those emotions inside of me. So, if that makes any sense at all, I feel most alive when I’m arguing.

It was fun, except it poured while we were in the mall so we couldn’t really leave the mall.
But yeah. It was a good time.
Abandoned Rail Bridge, Japan.
i’m just really curious
is there anybody else who takes the rail tracks out of its mechanical context and started re-imagining it into some mythical sort of road
or is it just me
I like doing the same
If you’re talking about what I think you’re talking about, seriously yes.
“I think the greatest secret in life is…”
None of us is ever really at the end of the journey to becoming who we want to be. We can spend ten or forty or ninety years on this earth and still have things we want to change about ourselves, imperfections that gnaw at us or nervous habits that others notice or skills we haven’t yet mastered even though we’ve been trying for years.
The big secret is that. We look at people and wonder how they got it all together, but they haven’t! Some of the things we’ll want to change about ourselves haven’t even presented themselves to us yet. Maybe at thirty, you’ll start biting your nails. Perhaps at sixty, realising your time is dwindling, you’ll be less patient during conversations and start interrupting others.
It’s never too late to make a change in yourself because there will always be things to change.
I have this Live Like You Were Dying journal. It has 28 prompts that are supposed to make you think.
So starting today, and over the next 27 days, I will answer these prompts and then post my answers to my Tumblr. It’ll give me motivation to actually answer them.
I’ll tag them “like like you were dying journal” and “journal response #” (and fill in the number for that day) in case you’re interested in reading them, and maybe you can respond with your own views!
I’ll type the first one up now, with the disclaimer that these are my own opinions. Okay.
Edit: I notice some prompts go together, but I’m going to write them separately, so it’s going to be about 35ish days total.
deliveringtheworld asked: "When she looked at you there was curiosity and world-weariness and hope all at once, in that fleeting glance alone. She had known things, and felt things, that both wore her down and made her stronger; made her understanding and resilient. That, you see, was the thing: Kaitlyn was far braver than she knew. And though she knew the world to be a hard, grey place, she nonetheless gave to that world everything she could."
So, if you didn’t know previously, Sophie is basically the most observant individual currently alive and is REALLY FREAKING GOOD AT PUTTING HER OBSERVATIONS INTO WORDS.
^_^ Thank you, Sophie.
I just changed one of my classes for the fall semester so now it’s basically one of those really ridiculous and awesome semesters.
