I feel so much kinship with this girl.

"I’ve had ten more years to learn diplomacy."
I am hot-headed and my tongue moves faster than my filter can keep up with. I am brash and harsh. I am abrasive and quick to anger. You can back me against a wall, but I will always have enough room to strike.
"Then I guess my youth betrays me."
I am young. I’ve been piloting this body for 24 years and sometimes I still feel too tall. Sometimes I feel too fragile. I feel too small in this school of sharks.
"Yeah, but I wish I was assertive like you."
I am hot-headed and young. I am brave and strong. I am passionate and sure. My morals guide me like the north star. My beliefs keep me solid. I am young, I am young, I am so fucking young. But I think I’ll always feel a little too tall for the defensive, cowering spirit I house.
Oh heyyy Void Dylan. Be sure to catch an all new After After Show after a brand new episode of Teen Wolf at 10pm on Moonday!
Gonna just watch this on repeat until Monday.
If you’re not watching Portlandia, I need you to love yourself a little more.
Holy CRAP this is well put.
LITERALLY ME RIGHT NOW
Season 2 of Gravity Falls premieres this summer!
I sometimes feel like I’m wasting my entire life doing things I absolutely hate doing. And sometimes I feel like I’m being responsible by not quitting.
And sometimes all I can think of is how much I want to be doing something worthwhile, somewhere I love.
And sometimes I can hear the waves hissing against the shore/sucking the sand and see the horizon and smell sunscreen and salt and I can build that cool, calm coastal air in my own lungs and breathe it out. Sometimes I can trick myself into feeling like I’m being rocked by the water, legs tangled in seaweed. Even when I’m wearing khaki and a name tag and the indestructible desire to punch someone. Even when I’m glaring my way through a production meeting.
What’s it like to be where you want to be? What’s it like to build a scene for yourself inside you that is bigger than a simple summer weekend?
As the tide washed in, the Dutch Tulip Man faced the ocean:
‘Conjoiner rejoinder poisoner concealer revelator. Look at it,
Rising up and rising down, taking everything with it.’
‘What’s that?’ Anna asked.
‘Water,’ the Dutchman said. ‘Well, and time.’

Epigraph of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
So I attempted a comic strip interpretation of the TFiOS epigraph. Comments and critiques are welcome.
Isn’t it amazing how things come full circle?
