Jhameel ❤

Still ridiculously in awe of the fact that I got to meet and listen to this guy live! Been following his music since 2 1/2 years ago and it's gotten me through quite a few late nights studying.

You told me the world wasn't ending.

And sure, I concede that, but -some- people's are. You have faith in the system. I do too. But I can't put my whole faith in a system which allowed this to happen in the first place, even if it does allow for it to be fixed. 

What is the price of being called a terrorist?

Acceptance

Isn't it interesting how contentment and resignation are both tied together by a common feeling of acceptance?

I have never before been so happy to get a C.

Ideals Over Realities

Do you ever get the feeling that ideals are better than realities? Not in the, duh that's why they're ideal, way but in the sense that even if you achieved the ideal you had in mind, you wouldn't really enjoy it? Not because of something you hadn't forseen really, but because of a pure incompatibility. 

Maybe it's not always that we want what we can't have, but just that we no longer want it when we have it. That is, we never really wanted it, just the idea of it.

Snippets

Every once in a while 
I think back to that conversation we had 
And wish 
I had paid a little more attention 
Maybe saved it 
Because now the words we said 
Fade into time
And nothing seems clear anymore 
I remember I was happy 
And I remember feeling blessed 

But 

There's a reason it's gone 
Isn't there?

Do you really miss these? Do you miss me?

The tattoos I want: 2. We'll see if I even get one.

Contentment

Are there things I would change about my life given the chance? Sure. Are there things I wish I had done differently? Yes. Are there people I wish I still talked to? Of course. 

Am I stressed about a whole assortment of things? Undoubtedly. 

But I’m happy with my life, where I am, with the people in it. I am.

I Remember...

You told me I'd get sick of you before you got sick of me. So why don't we talk anymore?

Was I right? Or did you think I got sick of you?
