“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”—Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones (via porcupineckties)
“[w]hat is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman’s foot when she orgasms…so putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation.”—christian louboutin is naughty (via sarazucker)
I can’t say this without sounding mawkish but I spent all of high school participating half-heartedly in shallow friendships with people I didn’t care about, with a few major exceptions, but I’m here in this place with people who understand. And it’s beautiful.
