“If you write just about one type of person, not only is that boring, not only does that deprive people of other points of view, it is also just false. It’s not what the world looks like. You should try to write about the world that’s there, because that’s the interesting one.”—
Joseph Fink, who’s p good at writing, I think. (from this week’s Philadelphia Weekly)
“A soul mate is not the person
who makes you the happiest, but the one
that makes you feel the most.
Who conducts your heart to bang the loudest,
who can drag you giggling
with forgiveness from the cellar they locked you in.”—Sierra DeMulder, excerpt from “Unrequited Love Poem” (via cigares)
I'll give you one pass, but then I'm going to openly mock.
If you have a smartphone, are not driving, and have under 1 minute to spare there is no excuse to text “I don’t know what that is.”
You’re physically holding a device that will give you the answer and you just admitted to me that you are incapable of using it to answer your own question; meaning you don’t recognize instant information availability ease in the very real, very expensive technology you own or are point blank stating “I’m too lazy to learn right now.”
