    she was bred in the summer, during the solstice; the longest day, the hottest day. she entered the world sunburnt, with a peeling nose and flaking scalp.
    and she had never once felt the cold, burning was the default and scolding was the peak. thermometers always broke; glass in her mouth, spirits on her tongue. sometimes it hurt, and always it was exhausting.
    even in the snow, stripped bare, her skin was flushed - red as an english rose, freckled and bright - she shone with perspiration; sweat trailing into the dip of her mouth, the taste bitter like acidic rain. the surface of her cheek streaked with evaporated tears.
    When she cries, the room becomes oppressive - her very own amazonia, right in the heart of manáos - and I am left, stuck on the bed as i wait for the the rain to stop choking me with its humidity. She apologises so much, always with such sincerity, it leaves my throat sealed and my mouth parched like uluru during mai wiyaringkupai.
    she laughs though, often and always, and these days are best. the room becomes clear, bright with a pleasant heat - a picture perfect postcard. i love her laugh, it is brash and unapologetic and it makes me feel the sun; this is gravely important, as i have never felt the heart of summer, just as she has never felt the cold embrace of winter.
    i hold her hand, and it is so hot in comparison to my own, i swear i see steam emerge from the spaces between our fingers. She smiles wide and her lip cracks down the middle, as dry as paranal. i want to kiss her. i really do.
    i bet she tastes like the solstice; the longest day, the hottest day.

    This is for Gaza,
    where ambulances are being bombed and destroyed, where hospitals and homes
    and schools are being razed to the ground, where innocent people are suffering and
    losing their lives to strangers, where newly orphaned children are crying, where laws
    are being broken and western news reporters don't bat an eyelid because this is all part
    of some 'war on terror'. It isn't. This isn't war. This is murder. Those are innocent people,
    innocent citizens, innocent doctors and builders and fathers and mothers who are watching
    their country being bombed to oblivion. Let the politicians turn their cheeks to the mess
    they've made. Let them ignore the screams of burning children. Even if they do, we won't.
    My mum just donated £3000 ten minutes ago. She's doing what she can. Will you, too?
    This is for people won't stand seeing innocent children suffer.

    Almost 4 years.
    323 "comment points."
    I got this page when I was a freshman in high school.
    Now, I am going into my sophomore year in college.
    From fifteen to twenty years old.
    I want to thank my followers.
    And everyone who has ever talked to me.
    And to anyone who has noticed me.
    I want to thank Steve, too.
    I started out with only a few followers.
    I don't remember when I gained so many.
    But when Steve followed me, I felt accomplished.
    And then when FramingMatthew followed me, I cried.
    Because he took the time out of his only days left, and followed me.
    And took the time to read my comment to him and tell me thank you.
    This is just my thank you to everyone on here.
    I've come a long way.
    I've changed a lot in the last four and a half years.
    It's cool to go back in my quotes and see my differences.
    It's cool to see how many people appreciate me, too.
    Thank you so much for the last four years.
    5,000 quotes later and I'm okay.
    I don't know if I'll ever hit 10,000, but if I do, it'll be cool.
    It'll take longer than four years, but I feel like I want to do it.
    Even if I will be forgotten and even if everyone from now leaves.
    A lot of people left from when I first got on here.
    It's just how life goes.
    So I hope years from now, you come back here and see my quotes.
    I hope that I'm still posting them.
    Thank you, guys.
    Until next time - you mean a lot to me.

    The advice I’ve always been given is to see the world for all it has to offer before I settle down, though I never understood it. I cannot imagine seeing foreign places and cities without you in them, I want to be adventurers together, create one story to tell our children, I want to cover the entirety of the earth in two pairs of footsteps.

    You’re itching to be on your own.
    You don’t want anybody telling you what time
    you have to be in at night or how to raise your baby.
    You’re going to leave your mother’s
    big comfortable house and she won’t stop you,
    because she knows you too well.
    But listen to what she says:
    When you walk out of my door,
    don’t let anybody raise you — you’ve been raised.
    You know right from wrong.
    In every relationship you make,
    you’ll have to show readiness
    to adjust and make adaptations.
    Remember, you can always come home.
    You will go home again when the world
    knocks you down — or when you fall down
    in full view of the world.
    But only for two or three weeks at a time.
    Your mother will pamper you and
    feed you your favorite meal of red beans and rice.
    You’ll make a practice of going home
    so she can liberate you again — one of the greatest gifts,
    along with nurturing your courage,
    that she will give you.
    Be courageous, but not foolhardy.
    Walk proud as you are.

    Vodka burns my throat but your
    name hurts my head, so I would
    rather black out with a hangover
    than stare blankly at my hands
    trying to forget what it was like
    to touch you.

    Can we talk about the phrase "I refuse to sink" with an anchor next to it. Do people understand what anchors do? Anchors SINK. Anchors sink to hold a boat in place. If you're an anchor that doesn't sink, YOU ARE DEFECTIVE. ... biggest pet peeve ever. And people that have it tattooed on their skin forever, I'm sorry.

    Advice for writers:
    Find little inspirations:
    I just wrote a short poetic piece after using my now cigarette-flavoured (ugh) lip balm. I've written pieces after songs hit me in a certain way, when someone says something that makes me stop and think, after seeing something particuarly interesting. In short, inspiration can come from anywhere. If something triggers something in you, GET THAT FEELING OR IDEA WRITTEN DOWN SOMEWHERE. Scribble it in the back of your note book, save it on your phone, write it on the back of you hand or up your arm.
    Keep all drafts of what you write:
    Even if you re-read and decide you don't like part of it, copy that part into another document before re-writing. You might come back later and realise that some of that would work in well somewhere else, or phrases are better than you first thought.
    Avoid using cliches as much as possible:
    Use your imagination and come up with unique or new ways to describe things. It makes your work more original and more interesting to read, and potentially expand your vocabulary. Reading the same descriptions over and over in different stories get really old and can turn readers off.
    Be consistent within pieces:
    Don't randomly flip between first and second person, or past/present/future tense. There may be points where changing is appropriate, like at the end of chapters or the change of scenes, but try to avoid changing at every scene change or end of chapter, as it can confuse readers.
    Use point of view appropriately:
    You should write in third person (he, she, they, etc.) unless first person (I, we, etc.) offers a really strong, interesting view of your story.
    Write from experience:
    Writing about things you're familiar with is so much easier than things you know nothing about. It also adds realism, which helps readers to really connect with your story and characters. At the same time, don't allow your familiarity with a situation blur the lines of what should be there and what is actually there.
    (on a related note) Do some research:
    Learn about the topic you're writing about. This can be as simple as people-watching, learning mannerisms and habits of people, or as intense as sitting down and googling things like you would for an essay.
    Know the difference between their/they're/there, your/you're, than/then and when to use much vs. many, less vs. fewer. Start a new line every time someone new speaks and after they've finished speaking.
    Don't get too obsessed with speech tags:
    'Said' is fine. If every line of dialogue is marked with 'questioned', 'exclaimed', 'asked', 'yelled', 'mentioned', 'noted', etc., it detracts from what is actually being said and the context around it.
    'Story' and 'plot' are different things:
    The story of a piece is all events without causality or linkage. Plot is the events with how they interlink and how one event cause or influence another. If you've ever asked a young child about their day, they will rattle off a list of things they did and saw; for example,
    I went to school and did art and had recess and played in the mud and Miss Lewis got mad and drew a picture and climbed a tree and got told off and fell over and my pants ripped and mum yelled and....
    This is the story of their day. An older child will be able to tell you what they did with how the events caused or influenced each other,
    'I went to school and had art class. At recess, I played in the mud and got dirty, which my teacher got mad at me for. I had to draw a picture of why we shouldn't play in the mud. At lunch I climbed a tree and fell after the teacher yelled at me, ripping my pants on the ground. When I got home, mum yelled at me for being dirty and tearing my pants.

    It's May 12, 2014.
    My freshman year in college is done tomorrow.
    I go home Friday for summer break.
    I've made mistakes.
    I've made memories.
    I've met the best friends I could ever ask for.
    My friends from home came up over the weekend.
    I didn't quite realize how much I had changed until they came up.
    I used to be this girl who was held back.
    Someone who didn't know how to be okay with who I am.
    Since I have come to college, I'm still the same person.
    I still hold back, but only when it's necassary to.
    And I still sometimes am not okay with who I am.
    But since coming here, I found a second home.
    I used to be this girl that was timid, in ways.
    I've grown into this 19 year old woman, who is no longer afraid.
    Despite my faults, and loss of friends:
    I love who I am, who I'm around, and where I am for once in my life.

    it’s hard 2 be sad about ur body when you think of it as a landscape. you don’t criticise a mountain for being too big, or a valley for being too winding, and no one ever complains about the vastness of the sea. u are part of the earth and u are so beautiful friends.
