Salutations! I‘m Diya. Let’s be friends! We can ride ponies and slide down rainbows and… it’ll be lots of fun.

About moi:

I think I’m rather witty. I like to brag that I taught myself the ukulele.

Everything's on fire, the war outside our door keeps raging on; hold onto this lullaby even when the music's gone

I'm in the process of learning American Sign Language from my mother's old textbooks, and German from Rosetta Stone (though I'm really not diligent about keeping up with that).

Time stacks up in piles like winter snow, and everything you love and hold so dear- it won't really matter when we disappear

I don’t really write fanfiction anymore, though I’ll try to jump back on that bandwagon sometime or another. I love art. I have a probably unhealthy addiction to Goldfish crackers.

Oh, lets get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France; lets get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance; lets get rich and build a house on a mountain, making everybody look like ants from way up there, you and I, you and I

And that’s really all you need to know. However, I'm awful about having long profiles, so...


xx THINGS I LOVE (although you probably couldn't care less) xx

ukuleles Sondre Lerche dancing awkwardly s'mores vintage things unicorns thrift stores my grandpa's laugh the way my family has a musical analogy for everything going through old boxes of stuffed animals raw cookie dough that perfect hour in the evening where the sunlight makes everything look magical little kids back rubs my hair braided puppies bubble wrap sour candy birds chirping witty allusions singing - LOUDLY old couples who are adorably in love the smell of a new book dimples Aussie accents raspberries Edgar Allan Poe white-water rafting kayaking at sunrise spontaneously bursting into song mini shopping sprees, just because I feel like it being alone in an art museum record players book stores Ukrainian ice cream kitschy souvenir shops crayons thesauruses silly pictures chocolate foreign languages harps, and playing them colorful socks donuts with sprinkles rappelling swimming on a hot day sparkling grape juice narwhals postcards bare feet on the sand (something I get little of in this inland town) sloths Sherlock Holmes laughing at fortune cookies sign language genuine apologies old family stories art teachers kids' books Play-Doh inside jokes when you're trying to sing a song but your voice keeps cracking because you're yell-singing and you end up laughing so hard that the sound won't come out anymore stargazing climbing trees making cookies

Quotes

Those who danced were thought to be rather insane by those who could not hear the music. -Angela Monet

Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than a whole one. -E. B. White

Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it. -E. B. White

I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite. -Buddy in Elf

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet, I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. -Groucho Marx

Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. -Henry Van Dyke

Between the optimist and pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut, the pessimist the hole! -Oscar Wilde

Charm is the ability to make someone else think that both of you are pretty wonderful. - Kathleen Winsor

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you've lost a friend. -Paul Sweeney

THE END. Almost.

As a parting note, I really love PM’s. (Personal messages. Not PMS. That would be weird.) Seriously, you have no idea how much they brighten my day. I love to talk to people, probably a little too much, so don’t hesitate if you want to, er, talk! :D

Hasta otro momento,

Diya
