i do not know much, but i do know i would be nothing without the love of my friends.
"The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny."

line 6 is my favorite because it’s a lovely sea green, and a lot of the line is outside, allowing one to take pictures such as this!
it’s almost 4 am here and today I only went outside to buy Chinese food from the take away place by the metro and a pack of cigarettes.
I’ve been thinking about what two good friends of mine have told me—two friends from very different parts of my life who have nonetheless imparted the same wisdom with me: that we can’t know all the answers and that’s okay.
I’m still surprised by how hurt I get when people whom I once respected and trust hurt me in any way. Anna says it’s naivete, and I would have to think I agree.
I’m 21 and sometimes I still feel like a very small child, trusting that if I am nice to someone they will be nice to me. But no of course. The world does not work this way.
“I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.”
