Him: Jade.
Her: Alexander.
Him: Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?
Her: I sure do, You came jumping out after me.
Him: Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke your ass, You were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the hospital, you remember that?
Her: Yes I do.
Him: Well there’s something I never told you about that night.
Her: What didn’t you tell me?
Him: While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was gonna be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you, And I never told you til just now.

No, that’s not it, it’s not about my joy, the relief of my burden. I like to see people reunited, maybe that’s a silly things but what can I say, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all the change, I like hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone, I sit on the side with a coffee and write in my day book, I examine the flight schedules that I’ve already memorized, I observe, I write, I try not to remember the life that I didn’t want to lose but lost and have to remember, being here fills my heart with so much joy, even if the joy isn’t mine, and the end of the day, I fill the suitcase with old news.


I am only halfway done this book, but I can already tell that it will be a favourite.

Audio with 4 plays

Local Natives - World News

I was going to write an accompanied article to explain why this song, at this very moment, is so important to me. Forget that, in the last two days, I’ve spent an hour in the bath listening to this song on repeat. I won’t mention my wretched bouts of insomnia that have found me listening quietly to this song at 3:47 am while I make a mug of chocolate chai tea. Nor will I remind anyone that this song is exactly the right length of time to get me from my house all the way to work in the morning, nor will I say how mouthing the words at work makes my shift slightly more bearable.

I won’t tell you any of these things. However, I will encourage you to listen to it exactly 4 times in a row.

Ask me a question. →

I decided to jump on the Tumblr Ask bandwagon (sorry, Formspring.me) so feel free to ask me anything, from inquiries about me to relationship advice to questions about botany (which I know nothing about, but I’ll try my best to answer anyways). Best part? It’s all anonymous (so be as scandalous as you’d like!)

Things I am currently liking (a lot)

1.

From the opening chords of “Horchata”, I was hooked on this album. I listened to it three times yesterday, and it only keeps getting better. I imagine this will make it on my Top Albums list at the end of the year.

2.

I have known about the Toadies for years, but it hasn’t been until now that I developed an obsession with the album Rubberneck. Total post-grunge alterna-rock, but there is something so appealing about this entire album that makes it relevant today. I am particularly obsessed with the song Tyler which is [apparently] about a rape that occurred in Tyler, Texas. But that’s besides the point! All you need to know is that after 2:16, it is the most intense part of the song and I love singing along to it.

3.

I am currently on a health kick right now and I get really excited when I can incorporate avocados into a meal. I’ve eaten guacamole, avocado smoothies, and I even put avocado in my hair (it helps for dry hair!). It’s chockful of good fats, potassium and B vitamins.

4.

I recently purchased a paid account on the site so I am completely enthralled by the graphs and charts the pro account provides. I’ve also been using the Flickr search feature to find everything under the sun: tattoos, tattoo placement, album covers, “little girl crying under a willow tree in the middle of a field” (alright, not that one, but point being that you can search practically everything). Check out my Flickr here!
