It has been one of the greatest and most difficult years of my life. I learned everything is temporary. Moments. Feelings. People. Flowers. I learned love is about giving everything and letting it hurt. I learned vulnerability is always the right choice because it is easy to be cold in a world that makes it so very difficult to remain soft. I learned all things come in twos. Life and death. Pain and joy. Salt and sugar. Me and you. It is the balance of the universe. It has been the year of hurting so bad but living so good. Making friends out of strangers. Making strangers out of friends. Learning mint chocolate chip ice cream will fix just about everything, and for the pains it can't there will always be my mother's arms. We must learn to focus on warm energy. Always. Soak our limbs in it and become better lovers to the world. For if we can't learn how to be kinder to each other, how will we ever learn to be kinder to the most desperate parts of ourselves?
new year's resolutions i know the new year began a month ago but who cares bc you don't need to wait until a change of a year to change your life this isn't really for just me but for all of you bc i know some of you are struggling with the same things i do so okay. there are only 2 but they are my 2 main ones the rest are things quite minor to me. here they are: 1. please stop being so sensitive and caring about what others think. i have gotten a lot better with this since the beginning of 2014, but there's always room for improvement. stop taking everything so personally, because more than half the time whatever someone says that bothers you has nothing to do with you. accept that criticism may be harsh at times, but most of it is only to help you improve. don't be discouraged if something someone did/said bothers you, let it bother you--but don't allow it to ruin your whole day. quit worrying about what people would think if you wore a certain type of shoe or found out that you like a certain type of music. if you like it, embrace it, and never mind any people who cannot accept that. if it does not offend a specific group of people, NEVER be ashamed of your interests, because they're part of who you are. NEVER be ashamed of who you are, and don't allow anyone to make you feel ashamed. and if they do, tell them to get their heads out of their behinds and ditch them; because someone who can't appreciate YOU doesn't deserve YOU in their lives. a tiger never loses sleep over the opinion of sheep. tl;dr have thick skin, live your life and try your best to cut out the people who don't like what you're doing w/ it or bring negativity 2. just go talk to the hot boy/girl/person you like!!! just GO do it. i can't tell you HOW many opportunities i missed for finding potential friendships/relationships in 2014 because i was afraid to take things a step further. i'm not nearly as shy as i was before (like i can go up and start conversations now w/ no problem) but throughout 2014 i've met some really interesting (and attractive) people and i was too timid to become anything more than an acquaintance unless they said something first. now that i am ready to take the initiave, my chances of seeing those people ever again are very low and i regret it at random times of the day. my main reasons were that i didn't want them to think i was clingy, and for the guys i was worried about what others (especially other girls) would think of me being so bold/flirtatious (which brings me back to resolution 1). so what i learned is that most of the time the person will not be weirded out if you ask for their number or ask to hang out sometime etc. and they are mean about it then do you really want to be talking to them anyway? also with the girls thing, stop giving a flying frick if girls think you're a "slvt" or a "whcre" for going after what you want. there is nothing wrong with being confident and outgoing, that does NOT make you a lady of the night. and the amount of times you've done any scxual acts does not define you or your worth as a human being. the worst that can happen is that you get turned down by any said person, and that's okay--because there are billions of other people in the world and i'm sure at least more than one of them would love to get to know you. tl;dr don't let anything or anyone hold you back from trying to get to know a person bc you could be missing an opportunity for one of the best friendships/relationships of your life if you read this all, hoped i helped some of this could have been worded better but i tried my best thank you have a good rest of 2015

"we have a whole new year ahead of us and wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all be a little more gentle with each other, and little more loving, have a little more empathy, and maybe - next year this time - we'd like each other a little more." -Judy Garland

2014 I really didn't set out at the beginning of this year thinking that 2014 was going to bring anything different to 2013, that the same sort of apathetic feeling was going to continue, and I'd be lying if I said that's not how's turned out. 2015 Please be better.
