……………….. hello

Imagine my surprise, logging in onto this old blog of mine for the first time in months to find a ton of notes on one of my posts and a bunch of new followers..

Well, hi. I’m not here anymore.
I’m not at my previously mentioned alternative tumblr either; as a matter of fact, I’ve all but quit tumblr entirely. So feel free to unfollow me! I won’t be updating this.

I have, however, recently started a photo blog to document a journey I made to Southeast Asia, and that I’ll be updating. So if you want to find me, you can do so at wanderlois.tumblr.com :)

Okay? Awesome.
Goodbye!

whoa

I come back on here after almost a month to find that a quote I posted has 18000+ likes… Uh.

Anyways I’m not here anymore.

If you wanna find me I’ll be at perfectionloop.tumblr.com

Goodbye!

I want to uproot whatever roots I planted, and move myself over to a different slab of concrete. Soak up the aura of an unusual environment. Submerge myself in the company of people not from Virginia. 

Everyone and everything is becoming too familiar.

꽃은 울고있는 자기 모습을 어린 왕자에게 보이고 싶지 않았다.
그토록 자존심 강한 꽃이었다…

참 정이 많았던 애가 언젠가 좀 차가워졌대.

“Alas!” said Candide, “it is the madness of maintaining that everything is right when it is wrong."

"And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love."
