This little spice can make your day a little sweeter. Or it could make it a lot trippier. Nutmeg is a hallucinogen (it can cause you to see things that are not there), and eating an entire one whole can send you into a psychotic trip, like LSD. But don’t go gnawing on the stuff…

Crowding around a 13 inch dorm television is not ideal for a group of friends. Instead, turn the whole wall into a TV with the iPhone pocket projector. Play videos, look at images and stream videos from different apps.
i feel like i’ve been putting all my eggs in one basket, my poetry has become you.
with your creative hands, like a potter molding clay, around and around the wheel, and a chef kneading bread until the time is right - you have created this indescribable feeling inside of me that courses through…
“I once heard that every falling star brings you closer to where you want to be.
When I was a young child, I would sit underneath the stars and wait to grow older, because the only place I wanted to be was a year older, a year wiser, a year more beautiful.
When I was a teenager, I would sit under the stars
and wait for them to take me to a place of happiness,
a place of contentment, a place of joy.
I am twenty years old now and I sit for hours underneath the stars begging them to take me away from here,
begging them to come down here, pick me up, and carry me to you.”—Amanda Helm - Made up Myth of Falling Stars (via amandaspoetry)
how long have we known each other now? how long have we known the other’s name and not breathed it into the night hoping to be closer? i feel as if the universe has used my life to draw me to you, to create in me a shadow, that only you could see. you see, i see things differently with you - as if you’ve given me this new vision, this new pair of eyes and everything is brighter, everything is more connected. you’ve shown me God as the artist, as the small person trying to hold the world together with such small hands, and weeping when we all fall apart. I cannot thank you enough for painting in my dark lines, for giving me yellow when all I wanted was to hole myself away in a pit of blackness and never be seen again.
to you, whose hands have brushed my heart when you are hundreds of miles away. to you, who has seen me and shown me the art and beauty within myself. If I lived one thousand more lifetimes, I would pick you every time.
“I have learned that
can save you
from the quiet death
a break up brings
or the soft
heart beat new
I have learned
that nothing should
from trying again.”—Michelle K., Trying Again. (via michellekpoems)
The second time you fall in love with someone, you’re going to compare it to your first love. That’s okay. That’s natural. You’re going to be studying the new love with judgement and wariness. “My ex never liked broccoli. Why the hell does this one eat so much broccoli?!” Discovering that you have the ability to love multiple people who are different and feel different is initially very jarring. Loving an unfamiliar body will leave you disoriented and in dire need of a map. That’s okay too. That’s to be expected. Just ask the new love for directions.
Ryan O’Connell - The Second Time You Fall in Love With Someone
I cannot promise that you will be safe inside my heart.
I can’t even promise that you’ll be able to make my heart a home.
See, the thing is, I can’t promise you anything.
I’ve promised it all before, forevers, no goodbyes, everything. And i’ve broken them all.
but here I am, standing before you -
i am skin and bone
and every emotion you can think of
i cant think straight
i cant speak without stuttering
i am a mess
and most of the time i am terrified but
i am not hiding.
i am not hiding
and maybe that doesn’t mean a lot to you,
but for someone who has spent half their life trying not to be seen,
this means everything.
sometimes i think about where we’ll be in five years
and i cannot promise ill be by your side,
but i hope so.
i hope so.
“My track coach use to tell me,
you have to do something eight times
for it to become a habit.
But I swear I only kissed you three times,
yet it feels like a million.
And when things got messy,
and you weren’t here to kiss,
I felt like my entire existence was wrong.
I guess my coach was wrong
because you were a habit,
that I never intended to break.”—New Love: Carol Shlyakhova(strong-but-breakable)
Peru is home to one of the most beautiful sites in the world, Machu Picchu, and you can see it all for much less than you would think. You can stay at a hostel in nearby Cuzco for less than $10 a night and taxi rides are only a dollar or two to get you where you need to go. Peru is…
Sheldon from the “The Big Bang Theory” can relate to this curse. A man named Thomas Busby had a favorite chair that nobody else was allowed to use. He went so far as to curse it so that nobody can use it without dying. He ended up strangling his father-in-law to death…
“You will no longer terrorize my heart and my physical being. You are not allowed back in. The door to enter my life is forever locked when you’re the one who is knocking.”—@foreverwritteninstone (via foreverwritteninstone)
