10 Road Signs You Can’t Believe Don’t Exist In Los Angeles
  • Southern Californians:*still in summer clothes and bracing for record breaking triple digit temps in the middle of the worst drought*

I skyped my two favourite ex-housemates who just moved into another apartment together, and after seeing them together without me, I just miss them so much. I love living by myself, but I also loved having someone answer my HELLO? when I walked through the front door, and going straight to lie on Neil’s bed before going into my own room, and having Abs kill all the bugs, and all that other really special camaraderie that develops when you share your living space with people who you genuinely love being around. 

The Dream Keeper


by Langston Hughes

Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamer,
Bring me all your
Heart melodies
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world.

It’s funny how quickly you adapt to a new place, and how quickly you forget how exhausting the move was. (My mother tells me this is what child birth is like too). 

“3 Things You Should Never Have Low Standards About:
1) Boys
2) Clothes
3) Coffee”

“I want someone who wants me back. And I’m not talking someone who likes my company and smiles a lot in my presence. No. I’m talking about someone who loves me for all I’m worth, and wants me as much as I want them. I want someone who fully embraces all the things I would do for them. Someone who feels lucky to have me, cherishes the moments we have and who’s love is all encompassing. I want to be someone’s world, in the sense that they will be truly selfless when it comes to me. And I only ask for these things because, for you, I would give the world” —(via neverh0ldmedown)

2 years of love, laughter and selfies.

2 years of love, laughter and selfies.

Do you ever have those moments when you are reminded that you really love someone? Like you know you love them, but it has been a while since you consciously thought about it. I had that yesterday when I got up at 6am so I would have time to go get Derrick some things from his favourite bakery (which is a 30-40 minute drive away) before getting on my flight to surprise him with a visit. Like I did not even mind a little bit (Okay, only a little bit when I got stuck in rush hour traffic on my way back, but you get the point). And I had this moment of this is what love is. Doing small thoughtful things for people, not because you feel obligated to, but because you genuinely just want to. Maybe getting up at 6am for some pastries is crazy, but then again, I always thought this whole loving people business is a little crazy too. 

This is love, he whispered, as he plucked out one of her chin hairs
