The alternative, which is well worth it, is to find new channels you can trust. An RSS feed with only bloggers who respect your time. Relentless editing of who you follow and who you listen to and what gets on the top of the pile. Until you remove the noise, you’re going to miss a lot of signal.
Eventually something you love is going to be taken away. And then you will fall...– Richard Siken (via zaidikidogo) Forever reblog. (via realityisrunningaway) Holy shit. Dear Mark, feel free to keep posting the contents of my brain all over the Internet.
This day was awesome. I haven’t had a drink since dinner last night and I spent the entire day relaxing (after a nice bike ride). I finally started watching the second series of Sherlock, got Amy through season 1 of Game of Thrones, and spent a decent chunk of the evening lounging outside while the weather was nice.

adulting: … unless you are having sex with them, in which case it wouldn’t be other people’s sex lives, it’s your joint sex life. A non-comprehensive list of shit that is none of your business: • Who is fucking whom • Who likes what in bed • How many people someone’s slept with • What other people’s orientations are, if they’ve not felt like coming out and telling you.
