  • Introducing: Mary.

    I have hobbies like ice skating, piano playing, swimming, slight volleyball and tennis playing, singing in the shower, an iota of guitar playing, and drawing. I'm sentimental and stubborn. I love finding the deeper & hidden messages. I'm addicted to Starbucks. I read stories again and again. I don't hate rainy days. Snow is amazing. I like shapes in clouds and silver linings. Dogs take up a fucking huge sizable amount of space in my heart. I get lost in other worlds and forget about reality more often than not. I have a habit of sending mixed signals. But what's wrong with a little mystery? I can also be sarcastic―a lot. I like the words serendipity and bittersweet and quirky and epiphany and intriguing. I like finding the meanings of names. I'm an ambivert and lowkey hopeless romantic. Sometimes I'm deeply depressing. Sometimes I'm a joy-spreading stranger that radiates sunshine. I believe that you're never too old for Disney. Autumn leaves are beautiful. I am only able watch football when my favorite team is playing. I find myself hanging on to the sinking ships I fall in love with. A city girl at heart that believes in bright lights and "This is where dreams come true," but that doesn't mean I forget about nature. I like autumn and winter weather better than summer and spring weather. There isn't one day that music isn't a part of my life. And I think that photography and traveling are awesome. xo

    "I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it."

    ―Audrey Hepburn

    "Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes coal, deep-burning and unquenchable."

    ―Bruce Lee

    the following are all by John Green (like, damn, this guy rocks), from his inimitable novels―

    The Fault in Our Stars:

    "My thoughts are stars I can't fathom into constellations."

    "The world is not a wish-granting factory."

    "I'm on the roller coaster that only goes up, my friend."

    "You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful."

    "You say you're not special because the world doesn't know about you, but that's an insult to me. I know you."

    "What a slut time is. She screws everybody."

    "The marks humans leave are too often scars.

    "I'll fight it for you...I'll find a way to hang around and annoy you for a while."

    "That's the thing about pain. It demands to be felt."

    "As the tide washed in, the Dutch Tulip Man faced the ocean:

    'Conjoiner rejoinder poisoner concealer revelator. Look at it, rising up and down, taking everything with it.'

    'What's that?' I asked.

    'Water,' the Dutchman said. 'Well, and time.'"

    and Looking for Alaska:

    "The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive."

    "I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane."

    "Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were 'I go to seek a Great Perhaps.' That's why I'm going. So I don't have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps."

    "'Hold on.' He grabbed a pencil and scrawled excitedly at the paper as if he'd just made a mathematical breakthrough and then looked back up at me. 'I just did some calculations, and I've been able to determine that you're full of shit.'"

    "And then something invisible snapped insider her, and that which had come together commenced to fall apart."

    "I am going to take this bucket of water and pour it on the flames of hell, and then I am going to use this torch to burn down the gates of paradise so that people will not love God for want of heaven or fear of hell, but because He is God."

    "That didn't happen, of course. Things never happened the way I imagined them."

    "I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity. But for now, at least I knew such people, and they needed me, just like comets need tails."

    So, maybe we’re the generation of the selfie,

    but we’re also the generation that grew up in a tainted, Photoshopped world
    with every impossible beauty standard shoved down our throat through a tube
    because eating has become a guilty pleasure
    and condemning beauty ideals won’t go straight to our thighs.

    And if, by chance, we are able to destroy the demons that you've planted inside of us
    with your constant advertisements and rules that play behind our eyelids and take root in our brains,
    then let us take our fucking pictures and capture that moment when we felt beautiful
    because all this world has taught us is that our beauty is the greatest measure of our worth.

    Scoff at our phones all you like, these delicate extensions of our fingers,
    but know that through this technology that you couldn't even begin to understand,
    we have smudged the entire world with our fingerprints.
    We are the generation of knowledge, and we are learning more than any that came before us.
    So, frown at my typing fingers; I am using them to grasp power by the throat.

    Try to invalidate us, but we've heard our parents talking about
    the world’s crashing and burning since we had sprung from the womb.
    We know you've fucked up, and we’re angry about it―
    the kind of anger that fuels knowledge, that I feel in my veins every time
    I read the news from my phone before school, that sticks in my throat like honey in a debate;
    the kind of anger that simmers, that sharpens teeth into daggers,
    that makes this generation more dangerous than you could have ever imagined.

    We are the generation of change, and goddammit, we’re coming.

    —Emily Palermo, An Open Letter to the Men Who Told Me to Stay Out of Adult Conversations
