Do you ever get a strange feeling that you’re going to keep in contact with someone for your entire life? There are just really cool people out there and I hope that I actually get to see where they go. Like I want to watch you accomplish your goals and get married and have kids and live life. Go you.
a recently published report commissioned by rewilding europe has found that the brown bear population of europe, once on the brink of extinction, has doubled between 1970 and 2005. “conservation actually works,” said frans schepers, managing director of rewilding europe. “wildlife will fairly quickly bounce back if we allow it to. this report shows that.”
he added, “with continued and strong legal protection, an active boosting of existing wildlife populations or by reintroductions setting up new ones, and a growing wildlife based tourism combined with increased tolerance towards wildlife, more species will surely follow.”
In football, you might get your bell rung, but you go in with the expectation that you might get hurt, and you hope to win and come out unscathed. As a distance runner, you know you’re going to get your bell rung. Distance runners are experts at pain, discomfort, and fear. You’re not coming away feeling good. It’s a matter of how much pain you can deal with on those days. It’s not a strategy. It’s just a callusing of the mind and body to deal with discomfort. Any serious runner bounces back. That’s the nature of their game. Taking pain.
When you’re young, thunderstorms seem scary. Like the sky is angry at you. But now that I’m older, something about its roar soothes me; it’s comforting to know that even nature needs to scream sometimes.
if you can have a long and meaningful conversation with me even though we haven’t seen or talked to each other in super super long and not make things awkward you are hella special
i’m into really low commitment hangouts like lying on the floor near each other or falling asleep together or falling into an endless void together
Do you ever just meet one person
and at first it is awkward
then you start talking
and its like
“holy crap where have you been all my life”
I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.
