If I could only go back now, I would run after him and say “Don’t go! Don’t go to Africa! You’re too weak! You’ll never survive! You’re beautifully weak, Peter. I love you for your weakness.” For that moment, Mina, I saw the future crystal clear.

Act my age? What the fuck is that, “act my age”? What do I care how old I am? The Ocean is old as fuck. It will still drown your ass with vigor.

the greatest thing i have ever read (via wcked)

For me, one of the biggest draws of the Internet has always been how I can be alone and yet find connection with other people. I am an introvert. I can fake extroversion, but it is exhausting. I prefer quiet, even when I am happily around other people. I spend an inordinate amount of time in my head. Online, I can be in my head and with interesting people. I can be alone but feel less lonely.

Roxane Gay, "The Danger of Disclosure"
