"And this is the marvel of marvels; that he called me Beloved."
C.S. Lewis (via awelltraveledwoman)

this might be the first time in years that I don’t have a painfully overwhelming crush on somebody actually in my life… well, okay then.

we like to call these our “justin bieber pants” because the crotch is so low…

I’ve only known this girl for under half a year, and she’s already been with me for my first sushi, my first wine experience, my first tattoo, my first heartbreak… we understand each other in a way only true kindred spirits can.  so thankful for you, my cupcake.

one hundred percent true story that I’ve never been cuddled in all my twenty-one years of life.  except for, you know, as a baby.  

this needs to change, come to meeeeee all of you.

there’s a short underpass tunnel on the way from my apartment building to the rest of campus, and I was walking to a friend’s place tonight, a guy in a gorilla costume walks into the other end of the tunnel. my outward reaction was to start laughing but inside I was all “this is it, this is how it’s gonna end. I’m going to get killed in a creepy tunnel by some stranger in a monkey suit”. so I tried to look confident and kept laughing and said “happy Good Friday” as I passed and the gorilla replied “you too Tessa” anD THIS PERSON KNOWS WHO I AM WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN A GORILLA COSTUME

as I was about to leave the gym, a guy came up to me and asked why I was doing Olympic lifts and what I was training for.

and I told him I’m not training for anything, I’m a percussion major and I need to be strong to keep up with the guys… kinda true kinda not, there are a lot more reasons why I lift than that and I wasn’t gonna go into them hahaha.
anyway.

he was genuinely happy to see a girl lifting in the weight room and that small interaction made me feel a hundred times better about being in a gym swarming with male athletes. people are really nice sometimes. I like people. yes.

A message from delicious--ambiguityy
“sometimes recovery doesn’t mean more treatment more therapy more medication ...” did you write this post? I read it and it hit me hard. It's beautiful!

hello, little stardust!

yes, I did write that and it makes me so happy to hear that it resonates with you; in all honesty, I’m a little overwhelmed by the amount of notes my little bit of scribbling has gotten. I didn’t see that coming at all. I wrote it after visiting one of my best friends in the hospital, who was placed in an eating disorder unit after suicidal ideations; she and I have found ourselves caught in the same kind of mind sets, and this particular thought was heavy on my mind after leaving her at the hospital.

thank you so much :)

of course the one date I get in my entire life would be with someone I’m wildly attracted to but will never ever see again
