my motto is “you’re always the cutest person in the room when you’re the only person in the room”
I swear to every heaven ever imagined,
if I hear one more dead-eyed hipster
tell me that art is dead, I will personally summon Shakespeare
from the grave so he can tell them every reason
why he wishes he were born in a time where
he could have a damn Gmail account.
The day after I taught my mother
how to send pictures over Iphone she texted
me a blurry image of our cocker spaniel ten times in a row.
Don’t you dare try to tell me that that is not beautiful.
But whatever, go ahead and choose to stay in
your backwards-hoping-all-inclusive club
while the rest of us fall in love over Skype.
Send angry letters to state representatives,
as we record the years first sunrise so
we can remember what beginning feels like when
we are inches away from the trigger.
Lock yourself away in your Antoinette castle
while eat cake and tweet to the whole universe that we did.
Hashtag you’re a pretentious ass hole.
Van Gogh would have taken 20 selflies a day.
Sylvia Plath would have texted her lovers
nothing but heart eyed emojis when she ran out of words.
Andy Warhol would have had the worlds weirdest Vine account,
and we all would have checked it every morning while we
Snap Chat our coffee orders to the people
we wish were pressed against our lips instead of lattes.
This life is spilling over with 85 year olds
rewatching JFK’s assassination and
7 year olds teaching themselves guitar over Youtube videos.
Never again do I have to be afraid of forgetting
what my fathers voice sounds like.
No longer must we sneak into our families phonebook
to look up an eating disorder hotline for our best friend.
No more must I wonder what people in Australia sound like
or how grasshoppers procreate.
I will gleefully continue to take pictures of tulips
in public parks on my cellphone
and you will continue to scoff and that is okay.
But I hope, I pray, that one day you will realize how blessed
you are to be alive in a moment where you can google search
how to say I love you in 164 different languages.

- me about to talk in public: *rehearses what im going to say 50 times in my brain*
- me: today how you are
My anaconda will consider it
Cool bed ideas for small spaces.
WANT. All of them!
I want that second setup SO badly. Keeping in mind for future plans!
nobody of you learned how to tag porn properly !
I would never put a chair with wheels on that raised platform! I’m scared just looking at it. But the rest of them look amazing.
- person: OMG YOU DIDN'T STUDY FOR THE TEST???!?!?!
- me: nope
- person: BUT HOW ARE YOU GONNA PASS???
- me: i'm not
it was thirst at first sight
when you stay up all night doing hw and the teacher doesn’t collect it
im actually really afraid that no one will fall in love with me
