Here’s to the kids. the kids who would rather spend their night with a bottle of coke & patrick or sonny playing on their headphones than go to some vomit-stained high school party. here’s to the kids whose 11:11 wish was wasted on one person who will never be there for them. here’s to the kids whose idea of a good night is sitting on the hood of a car, watching the stars. here’s to the kids who never were too good at life, but still were wicked cool. here’s to the kids who listened to Fall Out Boy and Hawthorne Heights before they were on mtv..and blame mtv for ruining their life. here’s to the kids who care more about the music than the haircuts. here’s to the kids who have crushes on a stupid lush. here’s to the kids who hum “a little less 16 candles, a little more touch me” when they’re stuck home, dateless, on a saturday night. here’s to the kids who have ever had a broken heart from someone who didn’t even know they existed. here’s to the kids who have read The Perks of Being a Wallflower & didn’t feel so alone after doing so. here’s to the kids who spend their days in photobooths with their best friend(s). here’s to the kids who are straight up smartasses & just don’t care. here’s to the kids who speak their mind. here’s to the kids who consider screamo their lullaby for going to sleep. here’s to the kids who second guess themselves on everything they do. here’s to the kids who will never have 100 percent confidence in anything they do, and to the kids who are okay with that. here’s to the kids. this one’s not for the kids, who always get what they want, but for the ones who never had it at all. it’s not for the ones who never got caught, but for the ones who always try and fall. this one’s for the kids who didn’t make it, we were the kids who never made it. the overcast girls and the underdog boys. not for the kids who had all their joys. this one’s for the kids who never faked it. we’re the kids who didn’t make it. they say “breaking hearts is what we do best,” and, “we’ll make your heart be ripped of your chest.” the only heart that i broke was mine, when i got my hopes up too too high. we were the kids who didn’t make it. we are the kids who never made it
“It was like she was only there when it was convenient for him; like she was the gas station no one ever visited unless their tank was coming up on empty. Yeah, there were days when she hated him and there were days when she was head over heels, too. But none of those days mattered, because she could never have him no matter how hard she fell.”—(via poeticheartache)
“If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. If you never get hurt, you always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store and visit your friends.”—Penny Lane, Almost Famous (via movieoftheday)

Tesla worked eighteen-hour days, finding ways to improve the primitive Edison dynamos.
From The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene. I have to finish this book (the whole series actually, I also have the War book and the Seduction book) before we do the image project thing for Polsci. I have a feeling we can use the stuff in them to successfully market an unknown presidential candidate!

Alice crouched down among the trees as well as she could, for her neck kept getting entangled among the branches, and every now and then she had to stop and untwist it.

Some few stopped to gaze at Oliver for a moment or two, or turned round to stare at him as they hurried by; but none relieved him, or troubled themselves to inquire how he came here.
“Look, that night was as much a surprise to me as it was to you. But being with you was like going to a place that I had never been before. And after you fell asleep I just laid there, staring up at those cheap fluorescent stars you have stuck on your ceiling, and - after a while they just started forming a pattern, this weird glow-in-the-dark pattern that linked together our entire relationship. And for the first time everything seemed clear to me - like one logical progression. It felt like you and I were the greatest plan ever made and I had nothing to do with it. Being with you made me feel that maybe I didn’t have to keep planning anymore because it felt like I was actually living. And that for once in my life I wouldn’t have to work so hard at being happy. That it could just happen.”—Ryan, Boys and Girls, (Submitted by: postitsonyourfridge) (via quotewhore)
