Well, kids, the year’s coming to a close, along with the semester. The big top is crashing down and the spectators are all packing up to leave before the traffic gets too bad. Somehow, I’m still going to miss all of the traffic, though, and that’s because I’m staying until the end; I know that some of you will be joining me.
This year has been less than ideal, and while I have no intentions of going into more detail at the moment, I am more than aware that some of you can say that you feel something similar. Here’s where we stand, though: we’re at the end.
Now, I didn’t really start typing this out with a plan, but I think that I started with an inkling of an idea in my head about what I wanted to say. I want to say congratulations. I want to say that I’m proud of you. I don’t give a shit if this month represents the end of your semester or just the end of your year. If you have survived, if you have made it at all, unscathed or wounded, you need to know that you’ve done something amazing. Here you and I stand, marking the end of the year in December. We have survived, and if this has to be an ending, it also has to be a beginning.
I know some of this may not feel that important or special, but I really think that it is. We made it through without giving up or killing ourselves or letting anyone take away our own types of life. So yes, the big top really is coming down now, but we can carve our names into the wooden stakes left in the ground that held this year’s tent up.
And if at the end of all of this, you can’t say that you’re proud of yourself, then know that I’ll say that I’m proud for you.

keydav asked: Primrose, Peony, Violet, Heliconia, and Azalea :)
Hi, hello, Morgan^^^
Primrose: Favorite kind of soup?
I don’t really like soup, but chicken and noodle soup is okay.
Peony: What’s your favorite hot beverage?
I also don’t really like hot drinks, but hot tea can be okay once it cools down and I also like hot chocolate.
Violet: Do you like where you’re from?
Sometimes, but I don’t really have a great way to explain in. For the most part, though, I see a lot of issues with this place, and I’d love to see them remedied.
Heliconia: Do you like when it rains?
When the rain is warm, yes.
Azalea: What’s a movie you cried while watching?
…Seeking a Friend for the End of the World…

But my definition of love is being robbed in an alley eight times in a row and hoping there’s something about today that makes all of this different. There is nothing logical about cutting off the most important parts of yourself and then putting them inside hands that shake, that tremble, that crack like a Haitian sidewalk.
I know a thousand things louder than a soldier’s gun.
I know the heartbeat of his mother. [x]
Andrea Gibson, Birthday
Congratulations, you’ve made it through another month!
(And almost another year!)
I’m so proud of you for carrying on, when sometimes you didn’t want to.
Happy December! :)
Keep going, you are doing great.
A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN

Amazing button sculptures by Miami based artist Augusto Esquivel. Absolutely stunning stuff!
TRAILER: “GODZILLA” (directed by Gareth Edwards)
All hail the king of monsters!
So this is teaser perfection. Oblique mood + Juliette Binoche + hazy look at the monster = excitement. it’s simple math, people.

Question with 1 note
evelinathoren asked: Daffodil, Myrtle, Rhododendron and Magnolia
Daffodil: What’s the most thoughtful present you’ve ever received?
That’s actually really hard. I could make a strong case for a small book of poems, a painting, a series of colorful letters written over a year, or even my first guitar.
Myrtle: Do you like going on airplanes?
Rhododendron: What’s the scariest dream you’ve ever had?
I don’t know. I have never had a lot of dreams, and the ones that I can remember are usually bad or just odd. I don’t know o.o
Magnolia: Favorite kind of candy?
Chocolate and peanut butter concoctions and jelly beans. OH, also, gummy worms are worth mentioning.
Question with 2 notes
airdnaela asked: Carnation, Allium, Locust, and Magnolia?
Carnation: If I handed you a concert ticket right now, who would you want to be the performer?
Either Motion City Soundtrack or The Front Bottoms, but probably MCS.
Allium: What’s the best thing you can cook?
Realistically, probably variations chorizo of eggs.
Locust: What was your favorite book as a child?
The first book that I was truly conscious of loving was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (roughly third grade). When I was little, I was exposed to a lot of random books from the library and from thrift stores, but I don’t think I ever really adopted one as a favorite.
Magnolia: Favorite kind of candy?
Chocolate and peanut butter things. Also, jelly beans…
Thank you for asking, Aleandria!
