“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”—E.B. White (via skeletales)
“Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson (via imfantasyparade)
I feel like i’ve been numb for the past year going through the motions, doing what i have to do to stay focused on my hopefully successful future. I don’t know how to be happy because i’m too afraid somebody will snatch it away from me. And money makes me sick to my stomach. I can’t wait to fail at saving all of mine this summer because i’ll probably have to spend it on other things rather than actually buying a car before school starts. Ugh. I want to be happy. I’m happy to be alive and all, but come on, something has got to give.
