Mostly, I just believe that I’m never going to stop learning what it is I believe.

Quvenzhané Wallis just made history. With the announcement of the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards this morning, the Louisiana-born Wallis, just 9 years old, is now the youngest ever nominee for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Wallis, who was just 5 when she auditioned for the role in “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” has received major recognition and critical acclaim for her portrayal of the character Hushpuppy.
I hope like hell she wins.
If you have not yet seen Beasts of the Southern Wild, you’re missing out.
I’m never gonna wait
that extra twenty minutes
to text you back,
and I’m never gonna play
hard to get
when I know your life
has been hard enough already.
When we all know everyone’s life
has been hard enough already
it’s hard to watch
the game we make of love,
"I intend to leave this life so shattered there’s gonna have to be a thousand separate heavens for all of my flying parts."
THIS. Every day, all day…THIS!
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - “Child”
Just a touch I’m gonna carry, carry
Another time where I probably shared the same life
The accent of a kiss whispers we’re married, married now
It’s either love or just the sun in my eyes and I say come on child
And I say come on child
Love love love love love
—Neil Gaiman, The Sandman
