Anonymous asked:

You're not an asshole for not wanting to be in a relationship with that girl. I actually think it's quite noble. A lot of people would probably just agree and then cheat/fuck shit up even worse down the line when even more feelings are involved. Being honest isn't bad. It's brave knowing you have to hurt someone because you're not willing to be a liar.

Yeah. But I really, really love the girl. She’s my best friend and beautiful and smart and impossibly kind. So I don’t feel noble at all. And I am, generally, willing to lie. Hell I’m a writer, I’ve made a career out of lying. What I’m not willing to do is hurt her any more than I already have. Someday soon she’s going to find someone else way better than me and I’ll HATE it but for her and only for her I’ll suck that up and do anything to remain close because she’s wonderful.

Adult relationships are really hard.

I’m the biggest nerd: wearing the National, listening to the National, about to go to the National @ Celebrate Bklyn. I’m afraid of everyone, even myself. Honk if you like boy bands.

I follow Sufjan Stevens because I wonder what’s going on with him and his music.  But I never really ‘get it’ and that’s ok too.  This tumblr of his is his.  For him to share exactly the way he does.

“I Really Need Some Personal Space

I find the age between 18 and 22 to be particularly interesting as traits of both adolescence and adulthood are exhibited simultaneously. To try to capture this duality I spent a year photographing my youngest sister. I have always felt that my sister and I are able to communicate best through my photographing her. My sister has never been very a communicative person but I think that by letting herself be photographed she is communicating something of herself to the outside world. I believe that I am a recorder of this period of her life and that she will be able to tell me something about herself though this process. This process also allows me to try to gain a better understanding of her and her experience of the world, and circumstances that are particular to her. I see these images as plot fragments that come together to tell the story of a period in a young woman’s life. I hope that this series will give some clues to her story while giving space to the viewer to insert their own story or to create their own narrative.”

Aladdin had really screwed things up with Jasmine this time. Even the Genie thought he’d acted like “a total dickhead.”

After a few months he decided to win Jasmine back, to show her how he’d grown up, that noe he was the man she’d always wanted him to be. He wanted to show her how brave he was, how he wasn’t scared of emotions anymore, how he could even, one day, be a good father to their children.

So he texted her: “hey, whats up?”
