they call me quiet girl, but i'm a riot.


"A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."
— Roald Dahl
austria vacation. what is my life.

austria vacation. what is my life.

this day is winning in epicness.

college acceptance letter? check.

shot records? check.

tax records? check.

money in the bank? check check check check!

all my anxiety-inducing ducks are lined up in a row! what a productive morning.

all this plus austria next week means this summer has never looked so welcoming.

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

— Roald Dahl

You like a flame are pure and slender
You like the morning light and dear
You blooming branch of the tree of splendor
You like a spring concealed and clear

You see me off through sunny meadows
You thrill me in the plumes of dusk
You light my path among the shadows
You cooling wind you warming musk

You are my wish and why I think
I breathe you in with all my air
I sip you in with all I drink
I kiss your fragrance everywhere

You blooming branch of the tree of splendor
You like a spring concealed and clear
You like a flame are pure and slender
You like the morning light and dear

—"You like a flame" by Stefan George, translated by A.Z. Foreman
