Living, naturally, is never easy. You continue making the gestures commanded by existence for many reasons, the first of which is habit. Dying voluntarily implies that you have recognized, even instinctively, the ridiculous character of that habit, the absence of any profound reason for living, the insane character of that daily agitation, and the uselessness of suffering.What, then, is that incalculable feeling that deprives the mind of the sleep necessary to life?
A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and this life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity. All healthy men having thought of their own suicide, it can be seen, without further explanation, that there is a direct connection between this feeling and the longing for death.” —Albert Camus, “The Myth of Sisyphus” (via fuckyeahexistentialism)
… makes the heart grow fonder, hopefully! I won’t be on Tumblr for the next few days because I’m flying up to NYC tomorrow and leaving my laptop at home. I’ve been chained to it for a while (addictive personality, holla) so I’m gonna take this week off to chill without it. My queue will probably keep posting for a good 24 hours and I update my Twitter account daily! Happy trails!
But I seem to be the only one who attributes the win to my presence.
You are a symbol of good luck! Oh volleyball girls, how I love thine long legs and lean asses.

Love this show forever.
I highly doubt that the kid who plays little kid Dick Whitman grew up to look like adult Don Draper.
Even that bowl cut isn’t enough to distract from the recessed chin.
I’m glad someone else noticed this discrepancy. Little kid Dick Whitman’s homeliness and adult Don Draper’s resulting good looks give me hope that I, too, may grow up to be a strikingly handsome, successful businessman.
going to NYC for a while, see you later.
Have fun in the Big Apple, my Norwegian princess!
yeahhh, no one has…tumblr is still revamping them somehow…or either they have revamped them so that you only get a like notification if a) it’s an original post of yours and/or b) the like is from a person you don’t follow. :(
Thanks! I’m always the last to know when Tumblr is renovating!
You know, when you’re on your dashboard and Tumblr says, “[Username] liked your quote” or whatever. Because I was creeping someone’s Liked posts recently and saw three posts of mine that I never got notifications for. It’s no big deal but I enjoy those notifications. They’re positive affirmation!
