#i’m looking at that bottom graphic and thinking about how much it looks like a newspaper photo and man could you imagine #reporters swarming as news reaches the wider world that one last assault is underway #airplanes scanning the seas waiting to see what comes up a kaiju or a jaeger #whether the world is ending or starting again #and what they get is this #no grand resurfacing no mecha to hail #just two pilots left #just the relief of human connection #just love #and that’s the image that goes round the world
#in which the fate of the world literally rested on empathy and camaraderie and togetherness #inside those giant hulking metal robots are two tiny humans with beating hearts and melded minds and MATED SOULS
livin a life of constantly being a little bit sleepy and mildly turned on
every time a boy pays attention to me i fall in love for like a week
Let me in the walls
You’ve built around
We can light a match
And burn them down
I wouldn’t say I’m a proficient musician, I brought my ukulele to Wilmington; I’m afraid I couldn’t bring my guitar with me, which is a shame. It’s something I’d love to be better at. I just bought a trumpet for our few days off. Everyone needs a hobby, so I’m going to teach myself the trumpet. [x]
But I guess ultimately what scares me about marriage is where do you find this person? You know a lot of times, most successful relationships, people meet through work, school, mutual friends.
But what’s most interesting to me is when people just meet in life, just randomly.
You know, I have a friend, he got married, I asked him like “Hey, uh, where’d you meet your wife?” He was like “I was leaving Bed, Bath & Beyond. I was looking for my car - I drive a gray Prius. I saw a different gray Prius, I thought it was mine, I walked up to it, I realized I had the wrong car, but I bumped into Carol, we started talking, that was that”. That’s unbelievable.
Think about all the random factors that had to come together to make this one moment possible - this one moment that changed these two people’s entire lives:
First off, this guy has to live in this particular town. Then he has to get a gray Prius. Then he has to need to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then he has to go to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then there has to be another guy who also lives in town, also drives a gray Prius, also needs to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond, also goes to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond at around the same time. Then they have to both park somewhat near each other, my friend has to leave before the other guy leaves, see the wrong Prius, think it’s his, walk up to it. Then the woman, Carol, needs to be near the wrong gray Prius for a million other random reasons. They bump into each other, they start talking, their entire lives are changed.
That’s the most amazing and terrifying thing about life.
It is, cause the amazing thing is that at any moment, any one of us can have that moment that totally changes our lives. You could be leaving the show tonight, bump into someone… it could change your life. You don’t know, that could happen.
The terrifying thing is… what if we’re all supposed to be at Bed Bath & Beyond right now?
a happy couple might’ve got married today
someone might’ve kissed their best friend and realized they are gay today
someone might’ve found out they were officially cancer free today
someone might’ve finally finished their debut novel today
lots of interesting things might’ve happening today
we should celebrate
you’re the kind of person everyone needs in their lives
I love when you become so close with someone that you can see parts of each other in one another and you begin to say the same things and steal lines from one another and have a similar sense of humor and can exchange an inside joke with just a glance you don’t even have to talk because you have such a strong connection with them and you can sit in comfortable silence but also talk for hours it’s really hard to find that kind of compatibility
everything’s happening too quick for my wallet
