I'm a Glass Child

Fragile, crystal, and translucent.

I'm Jamie. I adore dolls, collecting gemstones and minerals, reading the odd book or two, documentaries, astronomy, paleontology, the supernatural and paranormal, and music. I write it, sing it, play it, record it, and emote through it. It speaks for me when I stumble yet again with my speech.

Sometimes, I'm comfortably, unmistakably, strongly sure of who I am and what I live for, of who I am to be and the goals I set for myself. Other times, it all gets shaken up and shattered into a million little pieces and I find myself floating and struggling to find it again.

And I love the madness so much.

I just have to wake up and escape out of my stasis and cease to merely 'exist'.

What about you?

I shit love you.

First time trying fried strawberry ice cream. Interesting.

Hey, you. Look around you for a second. What are you doing with your life? Is it what you actually want to do, or what people around you have told you to do?

You know, there’s no such thing as making everyone happy. Whether you do what makes you happy or just go with what other people want you to do, there are always going to be some people who do not agree and are not very pleased about it.

And you only have one life. It is happening right now, and seconds are slipping away that you will never get back.

Might as well do what makes you truly happy. You’re the one living your life, after all.

All these love quotes being shared around lean far too heavily on the notion that women are fragile, innocent, pure little angels constantly being hurt by big, bad, ungrateful, evil men.

While it does happen, it’s a little biased. You think only the menfolk do you wrong? You think women don’t do their fair share of driving people up the walls and hurting them as well? It goes both ways.

If you want equality, learn to take the blame as well as pushing it on others.

PS: Not to mention these quotes also only picture heterosexual relationships, but that’s a story for another day.

You think you have plans, but life ‘gets in the way’? No, life has plans for you, and life thinks you’re the one disrespecting them and getting in the way. Life will show you your story, no matter if you like it or not.
