“Saying ‘I notice you’re a nerd’ is like saying, ‘Hey, I notice that you’d rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you’d rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?’ In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even ‘lame’ is kind of lame. Saying ‘You’re lame’ is like saying ‘You walk with a limp.’ Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he’s done all right for himself.”—John Green (via impetrate)
“Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.”—Sarah Dessen (via impetrate)
I got my rook pierced back in April and I love it. My favorite piercing by far, but pretty painful and does take a while to fully heal.
I love how the rook looks, but I’m kind of running out of space on my ears. I have 7 just normal piercings on one ear and then three and an industrial on the other. I think if I let some on the 7 side close up, I would do a rook, but I’m having a hard time letting them go haha.
