IT’S A JELLY BEAN MADE OF FLUFF

“Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.”

- Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking (via psych-facts)

people who don’t get excited about tv shows make me uncomfortable

Write this on my gravestone

J. R. R. Tolkien's handwritten letter discussing the motivation behind the Lord of the Rings.[x]

"I wrote The Lord of the Rings because I wished ‘to try my hand at a really long story that would hold the attention of readers, amuse them, delight them, and at times maybe excite them or deeply move them."

The interview went ok I think! It was short. There was a girl there ahead of me and when I left there were two more guys waiting. The guy who interviewed me was nice and I at least made him laugh telling him about the old lady customers at hanesbrands. He had a red beard and his name was Doug. They’re probably going to call people on friday. Whatever happens I’m glad that I went today and tried.
