there’s always this weird moment after a long relationship. after months of not speaking or seeing each other, the anger eventually fades. there’s no more resentment. there’s just you, making your way through the day and occasionally thinking, “wow, i can’t believe that’s really done.”
it doesn’t feel like acceptance or closure, it just feels sad. like you wished you had said good bye and good luck and hugged them like an old friend who was moving away.

Another day, another story. Eh Tumblr? This one is about Rapunzel. A fair maiden locked away in a tower, hidden from ever finding true love. Sad, huh? Well not too bad. See, Rapunzel was born outside of a Denny’s. And through some fairy tale magic that reason and logic could never explain, she was given long, beautiful bacon hair. So, this prince guy was riding by her prison tower one day, when he saw Rapunzel. So he was all, “You’re hawt, why are you locked in that tower?”
“Because of this evil woman that was jealous of my face.” Rapunzel yelled down.
“Alright,” he replied, “Let down your hair and I’ll climb it, because that makes sense and won’t hurt or inconvenience you in any way.” So Rapunzel, without taking into consideration the hundreds of thousands of nerve endings and pain receptors in the human head, let down her long bacon hair so the prince could climb up. But he didn’t. Because there was too much delicious bacon to eat. And enjoying crispy bacon is much more important than relying on a relationship in order to find happiness and validate your existence. The End.

5: Talk about the best birthday you’ve had.
for my eighteenth birthday a bunch of my close friends all got together and we just had dinner at my favourite restaurant and then hung out at my place after and shot the shit for hours and it was just so nice because all these totally different people had come together but they gelled together so nicely - that was always my favourite thing about birthday parties, just the coming together of everyone even if we didn’t do anything particularly special. and also that year i baked myself a vegan cake and wrote “i’m gonna stay eighteen forever” on it because of course it was a life goal to have the most emo birthday cake possible
15: Talk about the time you were most content in life.
hmmmmmmm, that’s really tough to pin down…it seems like it’s a lot easier to just experience happiness than actually be content, ya know? i guess what comes to mind is this one particular day in november 2011 when i remember just realizing that i felt completely content because nothing at all was going wrong in my life and that’s a COMPLETELY insignificant memory compared to all the moments of happiness i’ve had since then but my anxiety usually manages to hold me back from actually feeling content in those moments
