“You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”—Steve Jobs (via 36974)
Tumblr can't be shut down. It just can't. This isn't just a social blogging site. This is where people have made friends, found their soul mates, stopped people from killing themselves, raised awareness for certain diseases and disorders, discovered that we are not alone in certain aspects and learned that there are people who have the same interests as us outside of school or anywhere else. We express our real personalities on here. We are not the fake ones. Tumblr is a place for artists of all types, photographers, fashion lovers, multiple fandom supporters, and so much more. We are Tumblr. We are all connected in some way. We are one. We're not just some social blogging site.
Two earthquakes in the [San Francisco] Bay Area in one day.
Felt both of them. DID YOU?! I know I should’ve “duck and covered” but all I did was freeze and contemplate if it was really happening or it was all in my head. LOL. It wasn’t until AFTER that I started freaking out. Typical.
Anyway, I hope everyone who lives in the bay is alright! And hopefully the whole Rapture thing doesn’t come true or another Loma Prieta comes along… speaking of, the 22nd Anniversary of the Loma Prieta was three days ago. And weirdly enough, earlier was California’s ShakeOut earthquake preparedness drill. I even got a text in the morning saying, "Drop, cover and hold on!" which pretty much freaked me out after earthquake numero uno.
I hope this is the last earthquake for the rest of the year. I kind of expect a lot next year considering it’s 2012- the end of the world, you know? I’m kidding. Calm down.
“See, I’m not the one to be taken advantage of and if you really think about it, I got nothin’ but love. Now if your heart isn’t in it, please let me know. There’s no need to waste time- if it’s no, then I’ll go.”—Phife (from A Tribe Called Quest) (via 36974)
“Yes, I was infatuated with you: I am still. No one has ever heightened such a keen capacity of physical sensation in me. I cut you out because I couldn’t stand being a passing fancy. Before I give my body, I must give my thoughts, my mind, my dreams. And you weren’t having any of those.”—Sylvia Plath (via 36974)
“I’ve learned that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you’d better know something. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself to the best others can do. I’ve learned that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.”—Unknown
“I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. I’ve learned that it’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts. I’ve learned that you should never ruin an apology with an excuse.”—Unknown
“I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them. I’ve learned that no matter how much you care, some people just don’t care back. I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.”—Unknown
“You deserve someone who loves you with every single beat of his heart, someone who thinks about you constantly, someone who spends every minute of every day just wondering what you’re doing, where you are, who you’re with, and if you’re okay. You need someone who can help you reach your dreams and protect you from your fears. You need someone who will treat you with respect and love every part of you, even your flaws. You should be with someone who could make you happy, really happy, dancing on air happy.”—(via 36974)
“To a happy person, the formula for happiness is quite simple. Regardless of what happened early this morning, last week, or last year—or what may happen later this evening, tomorrow, or three years from now—now is where happiness lies.”—Richard Carlson
“Most people sabotage themselves because they aren’t mindful in the moment. Let your daily actions be governed by your goals and dreams. Whenever you are making an important decision, first ask if it gets you closer to your goals or farther away. If the answer is closer, pull the trigger. If it’s farther away, make a different choice. Conscious choice making is a critical step in making your dreams a reality.”—Jillian Michaels
“I believe you make your day. You make your life. So much of it is all perception, and this is the form that I built for myself. I have to accept it and work within those compounds, and it’s up to me.”—Brad Pitt
