you know when ur in a certain position in the car where its like wow if i get in a crash im fucked

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love."

Thomas Moore (via henretta84)

"It feels like a tidal wave. The amazing high, for a beautiful moment, and then it all comes crashing down. You don’t know how you can go on. But you do. You pick yourself up and gradually return to the status quo. Maybe it takes a while, but eventually you look back and realize it wasn’t a tidal wave at all, just a mere heartbeat in the grand scheme of things."

I slept for three and a half hours today.
The rest of my time has been spent working and fire department matters.
I feel so sick it’s not even funny. I just need a full day to not have to leave my bed and everything will be alright.

The actual total owner of the billion dollar company I work for was touring the factory tonight and his last name is Yomatas, right?
I shook his hand and called him Yotatas by accident.
I will be astounded if I don’t get fired within the next 24 hours, oh my God.

women: being a woman is hard

men: I thikn youre forgetting something: it is also hard to be a man. just letting you know that you forgot to mention that when you were talking about being a woman

Hear that?
That’s the sound of me not wanting to go to work tonight.
I want to play in the rain and walk around town and hang out with Sara and fix the stuff that’s broken at the station. I want to sit around a camp fire and drown myself in SoCo and wake up on the couch to the sun rising and then hide under the covers and go back to sleep. I want to be distracted by a ripping structure fire that forces me to work to my breaking point. I want to drag hose and grab the irons and go to work. I want to feel the heat push me to crawling on the floor. I want to hear tones drop and see red and white lights bounce off the trees in the dead of the night.
I want to feel something again.

Georgia Guidestones

The frightening and enigmatic Georgia Guidestones were recently updated with a stone tag that reads, “2014”.

This strange monument sounds like the creation of an evil bad guy in a science fiction movie who wants to take over the world. However, these stones are very real and their most frightening declaration is, “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 (five-hundred-million) in perpetual balance with nature.” There are currently 7,000,000,000 (seven-billion) people living on the planet. So, it seems whoever created these stones, which are written in eight languages, wants to murder a large majority of the planet.
