Some people, my father for instance, figured out how to build a life through sheer willpower. Others, like my mother, had faith.

I stopped caring. I went on a horrible date recently and realized just how dumb dating is. I am over women, over going on dates, and I’m going celibate. I think maybe after my career is more developed I will change my mind. For now, I am practicing brahmacharya and saving my morning coffee money for a later date.

Time is of the essence.
Hello, My name is Christopher, Kit for short, I am turning twenty-nine this summer and, fuck, I look at my life and I am not sure if I did a good job or a terrible one. What I do know is that I didn’t try as hard as I could. I am pretty smart. Not bad looking. Talented in some areas. Done with college. But, I bought my first car at 28 and the radiator already needs replaced. I haven’t...

Having a low opinion of yourself is not modesty. It’s self-destruction.– Bobby Sommer (via sweetriotbits)
You are being intentionally obscure as a substitute for having a personality.– Bonnie MacFarlane (Red Dead Redemption), on hipsters (via oboewan42)
