//shades of ivory


I want to dance with you on a particularly sunny day when the grass looks extra spiffy after an illinois rainshower and maybe we’ll go down to the beach without our shoes and maybe the wind will toss my hair in your face and you might want to kiss me afterwards and even if the water is cold you’ll play with me and twirl me around on hot pavement as we wait for our milkshakes and then when the sun goes down we can pretend time isn’t even a thing.

you’ll probably want to order in some nights and I’ll probably fight with you on what sushi to get but we’ll settle on burgers instead because I like to watch you smile more than I like to get my way and I just want you to know that I’m gonna bring my camera to snap those moments from now on cause they’re too beautiful not to capture on celluloid.

I’d like to rummage and thrift and bake and create with you. I’d like to sing and drink and cry and laugh with you. I’d like to stare at you and smell you on last nights clothes and wonder if you’re having a good day at work and not remember life before you.

all I’m saying is,
if you’ll be around,
I’ll be around.

“We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing.” 
Maria Mitchell is known as the first professional female astronomer in the United States. On October 1, 1847, she peered through her family’s telescope and “swept around for comets,” as she did every night it was clear. But that night she became the first woman in the U.S. to discover one. She later became the first Astronomy professor at Vassar College, where she would often ask her students, “Did you learn that in a book or observe it yourself?” 

at what cost?

Back at it. (Chalk markers are fun)

fuck standardization
and the way my art
isn’t allowed to
stand out from yours.
fuck rules
and the way my ways
aren’t allowed to
challenge yours.
fuck judgement
and the way my life
has to look like yours.


Ana & Devendra are the most aesthetically pleasing couple I’ve ever seen.
