"I’ve been overweight all my life. But I broke up with my boyfriend last year, and things weren’t going well, so it got worse and worse. I’d try to diet, but I’d eat something that I wasn’t supposed to. I’d try to go to the gym, but I’d leave early. I was trying to lose weight because I felt like I needed to be a different person. But time has passed now, and I think I’m approaching weight loss with a much more positive attitude. I know that I can be happy without losing weight. Sure, I wish I could wear prettier clothes. I wish I could take a photograph without my face looking like a football. But I know that I’m not my weight. And it’s hard to come to that conclusion. You really have to battle to separate your self-image from your weight. Because weight is always the first thing that somebody sees. Somebody will see you after a few years, and their first comment is about the weight you’ve put on. Maybe I’ve become a better person these last few years. Maybe I’ve been a great friend to someone. Maybe I’ve read a lot of books and become smarter. Maybe the reason I’ve put on weight is that I’ve got a great job that can be stressful and doesn’t leave me time to go to the gym."

During his match with Djokovic, Nishikori bounced his racket off of the court, AND WITHOUT LOOKING, caught it behind his back.
Did he mean to do that? Does he practice doing that? Can he do it at will? Was telekinesis or sorcery involved?
Kei actually does a lot of racquet flips (which always amazes me seems like he can do some crazy shit with it) he just does it without even looking. He’s a magician on the court.
i wanna be one of those people who does yoga at sunrise and drinks water out of mason jars filled with berries and twigs and shit

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
This is the B-Side to Daughters ‘Youth’ single. Although ‘Smoke’ didn’t make it to the debut album If You Leave, it still stands as one of my favourite tracks.
I will be ripping more B-Sides from my record collection shortly to post here, stay tuned.
