oh my god i’m fucking sick of this generation’s mentality that your sadness is beautiful and somebody will fix you and all this fucking john green shit nobody will find you in a bookstore reading bukowski and want to lie with you and nobody will kiss your scars and you will not be like effie and freddie you’ve got to be your own fucking hero and surround yourself with positivity

"The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by

pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only

pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to

admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. If you can’t lick ‘em, join ‘em.

If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is

to lose hold of everything else.”

-Ursula Le Guin (The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas)

“Our clocks keep track, ticking past seconds, minutes, hours, days. In Grand Central, the clock stands sentinel, measuring moments and bearing witness to the millions of people who stream through as we bustle to and from our family, our work, our passions, our lives,” said curator Amy Hausmann, Deputy  Director, MTA Arts for Transit, in describing the inspiration for ON TIME/Grand Central at 100. “Grand Central is a place where past, present and future come together. The artists are thinking about a sense of time, bending it and exploring what this mythic and romantic place means to us.”  See it for yourself! On view at the New York Transit Museum Gallery at Grand Central through Sunday, July 7.

You’re single because you’re single. It’s not because you texted too much or too little or waited 33 minutes to respond because he took 23. It’s not because you met up with your ex that night at 5 a.m. that no one knows about, or because you kissed another boy after a date with a loser.

You’re not single because you spit food on that date or tripped coming out the the movie theatre. You’re not single because you hurt your first boyfriend really badly when you were 15 or because you have yet, to this day, to apologize. It’s not because you were secretly jealous when your friend got a boyfriend or that a guy you dated for two months now has a really cute girlfriend and looks really happy. And you’re happy for him. But still ill that he found someone before you.

You’re not single because you slept with your ex boyfriend. You’re not single because half the world found out when you didn’t even want to remember it yourself. You’re not single because you think the guy your friend wants to hook you up with is ugly or not tall enough. It’s not because you’re not willing to put up with someone who doesn’t brush their teeth on a regular basis.

You’re not single because your standards are too high. Good for you for having standards. It’s not because you didn’t like that really, really good guy who wanted to take you on a date and you just weren’t feeling it. And it’s not because you like to wear pajama pants as soon as you get home and wash all the makeup off your face. You’re not single because you didn’t learn enough from the past or would rather chill on a Friday night with your blanket and a cold beer than shower, get ready, and go out. You’re not single because something is wrong with you.

You are single because you are single. It’s really as simple as that. You haven’t made the connection with another heart yet. You can get dolled up, dress cute, cut your hair, dye your hair, tweeze your eyebrows, put on lipstick and you may still. be. single. You can go out to a bar hoping to meet the love of your life and not find a damn one in the place attractive. And it’s going to remain that way until it’s time for you to find one. Stop hoping for it. Start living the life that you do have instead of wishing for things that you don’t have. There will come a time you’ll meet a boy and you’ll have to give up some of this single freedom you currently have. Start being more thankful. Start doing that now.

It’s scary to find someone that makes you happy. You start giving them all of your attention because they’re what makes you forget everything bad that’s going on in your life. They’re the first person you want to talk to in the morning and the last one before you sleep just so you can start and end your day with a smile. It all sounds great to have that someone, but it’s scary to think about how easily they could just leave and take that happiness away too when they go.
