“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”—Gary Provost (via meggannn)
when I see you I pretend I’ve never met you before.
I pretend you’re a complete stranger, just another client in the shop. Or a friend of one of my co-workers that I’ve never been introduced to. I have no memories containing your face or voice. No funny stories or experiences in which you were at my side, as my partner. Nothing to relate to you with, no ties to your family or child. We know absolutely nothing about each other, and I have no means by which to relate to you.
I can keep this up fairly well. Ignoring the feeling that swells in me when you’re near, as it always has, and I’m assuming always will.
If this is the only way to survive being treated as less human than all your other ‘dudes’, than so be it.
Would like you to find your special someone and be happy Dae :S (regarding the break up). (PS- Agree with you, Twilight isn't dumb, it's horrible as fuck.)
Haha, well I’m sure whomever I’m supposed to end up with is out there somewhere, but in the meantime I’m just going with the flow. I’m not looking for anyone, I’m enjoying the fuck out of being single. Thank you for the well-wishes though.
And no, Twilight’s not dumb, but it’s def meant for 12 year olds. Lestat will always be the only vampire for me.
The above article is an update. Her mother went to appeal to keep her out of the psychiatric ward and lost. She will be institutionalized because of her expression of her gender. She will be held until she conforms to male gender and then released to foster care, not her mother who was supporting her.
