“I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can’t really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, ‘If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we’ll talk.’ All the computer can give you is a manuscript. People don’t want to read manuscripts. They want to read books. Books smell good. They look good. You can press it to your bosom. You can carry it in your pocket.”—Ray Bradbury (via nuaira)
“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.”—Albert Einstein (via melissacollins)
I ordered pink oxfords and earrings from Urban Outfitters the first week of November (like Saturday), and paid for standard 5-7 day shipping from UPS to USPS. Estimated Delivery Date: November 9th or thereabouts.
I ordered two button up plaid shirts and a hoodie from Hollister on clearance the next day (Sunday), and paid for standard shipping through FedEx, to get here on the 14th or 15th.
November 8th, my UO order is listed as being in Oakdale, which is my billing address, not my shipping address. It takes them a day to realize their mistake, and after about a 4 days, ends up in a suburb of LA. Every day I’m expecting an email from my apartment complex stating my order has arrived finally. Nope.
November 14th, my Hollister order is in San Diego. In Transit. For 5 days in San Diego. I accidentally close out of the window with the tracking info on my phone and the email’s link doesnt work so I havent had a chance to figure out where it is. Too busy with school to figure it out until just now. Just hoping I get it before Christmas.
I open my email this morning on my laptop, and UO has told me that they have recieved my order back at the warehouse because they couldnt find my address. To make sure, I open the Hollister one, and it’s in Nevada, out for delivery.
What is this? I spent like 150 dollars total on these purchases and its been like three weeks of stupidity.
I’m a mess
That’s the best way to describe it
Having no time to myself is the only way I can fight it
When I’m alone it’s like I’m staring into a mirror
Don’t know the person inside it and that’s never been any clearer
I miss your family and I miss all our friends
If you had it to do over would you do it over again,
Cause I would, this meant something more to me
There’s a hole in my heart where you used to be
I still wish you the best of luck, baby
And don’t go thinking this was a waste of time
I couldn’t forget you if I tried
You killed what was left of the good in me
I’m tired so let me be broken
Look down at the mess that’s in front of me
No other words need be spoken
And I’ve got nobody else to blame though I tried
Kept all of our past mistakes held inside
I’ll live with regret for my whole life
I confess that I brought this all on myself
Condemned to suffer alone, like there’s nobody else
When you’re gone, it’s like a whole part of me’s missing
So I’ll keep living the lie and just hope that you’re listening
