hey if you teach your parrot to say ‘parrot’ it’s probably as close as you’ll get to owning a pokemon

My brother tells a story about his roommate’s parrot, that everyone who came to the house would say “you’re a bird!” to it so the bird would repeat the phrase back, no big. Until one day my brother was alone in the house with it and heard it say, very quietly, “I’m a bird.” My brother almost dropped a plate.

people get so caught up on one small thing they don’t like, like their nose or something

things like salt and baking powder go into a cake and those things are gross alone but the cake is pretty damn delicious

this is the most confidence boosting text post i’ve ever read

Breathe. It’s okay. You’re going to be okay. Just breathe. Breathe, and remind yourself of all the times in the past you felt this scared. All of the times you felt this anxious and this overwhelmed. All of the times you felt this level of pain. And remind yourself how each time, you made it through. Life has thrown so much at you, and despite how difficult things have been, you’ve survived. Breathe and trust that you can survive this too. Trust that this struggle is part of the process. And trust that as long as you don’t give up and keep pushing forward, no matter how hopeless things seem, you will make it. Daniell Koepke (via zosolio)

your lips never unlearned her name
as if she had tattooed herself inside your teeth
you dream about her,
cry her name in your sleep

she is the summer rain and
her smile is so quick maybe that is why
it still feels like lightning as it runs up
your veins

but you are blackmoon nights
where you chew off your fingernails and
start fights with too much alcohol
to see who winds up empty:
you or the bottle

so you let her go because waterlilies
don’t call deserts like you
a home

he better know the measure
of the girl he wraps his arms around
because oh god oh fuck oh sweet lord
if she is a skyscraper,
you are just dirt

and you will do anything
to make her
the happiest girl
in this world.
