“He smiled understandingly - much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life… It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

it’s been a busy, stressful, and project filled past couple of months, which may or may not explain my absence from tumblr. then there is also instagram, which i am completely obsessed with.

“When I feel lost and can’t make a decision, I just stop and get quiet. I take a time-out. I ask myself, How does this feel? What do I want my life to be like? I try not to listen to the shoulds or coulds, and try to get beyond expectations, peer pressure, or trying to please - and just listen. I believe all the answers are ultimately within us.” -Kim Cattrall
As I lie here in the dark, fighting insomnia, browsing tumblr, I realized that I’ve somehow been skipping on the shoulder & not strolling on the main road. I don’t know when I veered off but I don’t like it. Now is not the time to be distracted, regardless if LIFE happened. Need to focus & get back on track.
Highlight of today’s visit to the Met was Cloud City and not the Schiaparelli and Prada exhibit… which was the reason of the visit…
I wonder if things can happen too early or too late or if everything happens at exactly the right time. If so, how sad and how beautiful. - Simon Von Booy, The Secret Lives of People in Love
