You are still young, free.. Do yourself a favor. Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late.The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri (via books-foreverandalways)

Nine Wonderful Words About Words
Denominalisation…a sesquipedalian’s word for “verbing.”
Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.
Gillian Flynn, “Gone Girl” (via srsly)
Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men – friends, coworkers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much – no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version – maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain. (How do you know you’re not Cool Girl? Because he says things like: “I like strong women.” If he says that to you, he will at some point fuck someone else. Because “I like strong women” is code for “I hate strong women.”)
Fuck the popo
THIS IS THE MOST BADASS THING IVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE HELL YES.
re-watched this so many times
My advice, enjoy! At this age it’s the perfect time to make mistakes, try things out, be rebellious, experience everything cause imagine doing all that shit when you’re older! 😳 No but seriously. You’re 24, you’re too young to keep worrying or second guessing things. Make mistakes that you’ll learn from, do things that may hurt you but excite you for that moment, those wrong decisions are what make you stronger, make you mature, they don’t define you! I’m not saying to do stupid things nor act immature, what I’m saying is to gamble on things you doubt or what you are unsure of. Risk it cause it’s always better to experience it than to not at allTiffany (best friend and part-time therapist/advice giver)
