i often feel, well to be honest- like jumping into the hudson... instead, i go to my favorite places and think about my favorite people, and then i re-read words that moved me, re-watch/listen to film clips that make me feel so much less alien and just a little more me. every time, like it is the first time. i need quotes, they're like verbal stills, stills that have captured all that is necessary to help me go on. to inspire me to be alright, being still not quite 'human'. which is so fucking overrated. - stillnothuman

I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself: So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more.

It never occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then.
