I have not shown my work to any of my friends or family members since I started my masters program. For all they know I have been sitting in Oregon twirling my fingers for the past year and a half.

do you ever have a plan for the day and suddenly it’s 4pm and you’ve achieved literally nothing

"You like to write. It’s the single most important quality for someone who wants to be a writer. But not in itself enough."
— Haruki Murakami (via writingbox)

"Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."
— Ernest Hemingway (via kkkain)

Nostalgic of the days when I could just write a mediocre essay, hand it in, get a B, and never have to worry about that essay ever again.
