There will be men who hurt you. 
And there will be men who make a fool of you. 
And the second is somehow far worse than the first. 
Because it is disrespectful and unkind and stitched together by small, selfish lies. 
These men—the ones that take you for a fool—these are the men more concerned with being seen as the good guy, thanactually being the good guy
These are the men who worship at the altar of cool and casual and isn’t-this-fun. 
The men who lack courage. 
Who say they are fearless when fear is their motivating factor.

The story of "Keep Calm and Carry On"

I actually couldn't be more irritated by this meme.
(An aside: Does ANYONE know how to pronounce that word?)
I hate the way it blew up and almost instantaneously became lame.
And then when I watched the story of its origin, I got even more bummed about how it got carried away.
Regardless.  I'm a sucker for anything World War II related.


Also, I would very much like to visit Barter Books in the northeast corner of England, as a matter of fact.

“You will never be completely at home again, 
because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. 
That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.”

My wounds are no longer fresh. 
But I can still look at you and think:
 ‘you are the worst person who ever happened to me. no one else has ever treated me as badly as you did.’
