Honestly, sometimes I just forget about social media. Mostly it’s when I’m living life to the fullest. When I do that I don’t get bored…..
But then school starts again and I need an outlet for my procrastination.
What’s so special about you anyways? I’ve asked myself this question so many times, but I still can’t seem to find the answer. You have so many flaws.. You’re a smoker, which in my book of standards is disgusting, you barely ever shower, you’re never honest about your feelings, you have early onset balding…. but still, I can’t be around you without wishing that you were MINE.
I guess the point is that we can’t choose who we care about. I sure as hell wouldn’t choose you if I could help it….but I can’t. And I guess what I’m trying to say here is that I love you, and I love everything about you, despite how weird or disgusting or mean you are..
But maybe that’s what love is, you know… maybe you’re not supposed to have a decision to make in the matter.. maybe love is loving EVERYTHING about the person, not just the things that are good about them.. There’s this quote.. by some guy that I’ve never heard of, but it’s the best quote ever. And I think it describes “love” perfectly…
“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.” -Louis de Bernieres
I just want to be one tree with you…
