At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays. I saw the life inside your eyes. So shine bright, tonight, you and I. We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky. Eye to eye, so alive. We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky. Shine bright like a diamond. Shine bright like a diamond. Shine bright like a diamond. We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky. Shine bright like a diamond. Shine bright like a diamond. Shine bright like a diamond. We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky.
- Adele - Rolling in the Deep
There's a fire starting in my heart Reaching a fever pitch, it's bringing me out the dark Finally I can see you crystal clear Go ahead and sell me out and I'll lay your ship bare See how I'll leave with every piece of you Don't underestimate the things that I will do There's a fire starting in my heart Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark The scars of your love remind me of us They keep me thinking that we almost had it all.
- The Deep
Luke turned to face the door again and started to crawl desperately. His fingernails and kneecaps scraped the cement, opening the skin up. The door galloped away in heart-clutching increments - he chased it the way a car pursues a heat shimmer on the highway: always tantalizingly close, but you never quite catch it.
- Lefthand exercise
A tesseradecade of extravasated, aftercatarct, vegetated terraces were reseeded afterwards as desegregated stewardesses in sweaterdresses recreated a devastated desert.
- Immortality's curse
There are plenty of people who wish of having immortality on this Earth, but that to me a painful curse. Sure, you get to have the benefit of doing what you want, however you want, but before you go out wishing for the ability of eternal life, think about what will happen. What happens when you run out of things to do? Everything is finite. Do the people around you become immortal as well? If not, then everyone you have and ever will know, will eventually pass away without you.
- Magnus Archives podcast ep. 074
I've always had problems sleeping. Even as a child, my mother would always check my room to find me reading well into the night. If I heard her coming up the stairs, I would turn off my light and dive beneath the covers to try and convince her I was sound asleep. If it worked, I would listen to her walk off to her room, and then bring out my book once again. At the time, I thought it was because I loved reading, but looking back I think it must have been the first strings of insomnia.
- From How To Keep House While Drowning
Morality concerns itself with the goodness or badness of your character and the rightness or wrongness of decisions. Lots of decisions are moral decisions, but cleaning your car regularly is not one of them. You can be a fully functioning, fully successful, happy, kind, generous adult and never be very good at cleaning your dishes in a timely manner or have an organized home.

- Looking at my keyboard.
Lately, I've noticed that sometimes whilst typing I am looking down at my keyboard. However, this isn't because I am unfamiliar with my keyboard and that I need to see where the keys are, rather it seems this is purely just a bad habit that stuck around from I was still learning how to type. I don't know how to overcome this habit but I will gladly report that I typed this without looking down at all.
- Madison Beer - Reckless
I still have the letter you wrote when you told me that I was only girl you'd ever want in your life. I guess my friends were right. Each day goes by and each night I cry. Somebody saw you with her last night. You gave me your words "Don't worry 'bout her." You might love her now, but you loved me first. Said you'd never hurt me, but here we are. Oh, you swore on every star. How could you be so reckless with my heart?

- Finale (Alastor's verse)- Hazbin Hotel
This place reeks of death, there's a chill in the air. And I barely escaped being killed by a hair. "Great Alastor, altruist, died for his friends." Sorry to disappoint, that is now where this ends. I'm hungry for freedom like never before. The constraints of my deal surely have a backdoor. Once I figure out how to unclip my wings. Guess who will be pulling all the string?
- Dial drunk
"Son, why do you do this to yourself?" And I said, I ain't proud of all the punches that I've thrown in the name of someone I no longer know, for the shame of being young, drunk and alone. Traffic lights and a transmitter radio. I don't like that when they threw me in the car, I gave your name as my emergency phone call, honey it rang and rang even the cops thought you were wrong for hanging up. I dial drunk, I'll die a drunk, I'd die for you.
- SIX the Musical: Heart of Stone - Jane Seymour
You can build me up, you can tear me down. You can try, but I'm unbreakable. You can do your best, but I'll stand the test. You'll find that I'm unshakeable. When the fire's burnt. When the wind has blown. When the water's dried, you still find stone. My heart of stone.
- Antipathy World
There's no flower in this world more beautiful than an artificial one. That's because everything is manufactured from lies. The rain of despair pelts my umbrella and dampens my bangs and the hidden side of my heart. Oh, it's all so troublesome. Before I knew it, the words had already withered. The fruit of the truth is ripening within me painting lies upon the mirror's reflection, a "makeup" of the loss of oneself. Let's play a game where we count all the riddles.

- Very Far Away From Anywhere Else
I am always the youngest person in my class. And the youngest person in my family, being the only child. They let me into school early because I was such a bright little jerk. I have always been bright for my age. Who knows, at forty-five I may still be bright for my age. That is partly what this thing I'm telling, this story, is about. About being a bright little jerk.
- Born A Crime
We spend so much time being afraid of failure, afraid of rejection. But regret is the thing we should fear most. Failure is an answer. Rejection is an answer. Regret is an eternal question you will never have the answer to.
- Typing is fun
The reason I began to type was so that I could be faster than my friends. But around when I crossed 90 WPM, I stopped typing to get faster and just for the hell of it. Typing became a fun hobby of mine that I could convince myself was a skill that was definitely, totally useful in my everyday life. Now, whenever I'm stressed, I start typing. Whenever I'm bored, I start typing. If I'm watching or listening to something, I'm probably typing on the other tab. Typing is fun.

- Beowulf Opening Passage
Lo, praise of the prowess of people-kings of spear-armed Danes, in days long sped, we have heard, and what honor the athelings won! Oft Scyld the Scefing from squadroned foes, from many a tribe, the mead-bench tore, awing the earls. Since erst he lay friendless, a foundling, fate repaid him: for he waxed under welkin, in wealth he throve, till before him the folk, both far and near, who house by the whale-path, heard his mandate, gave him gifts: a good king he!
- Productivity increasing
Something that helped me improve my typing speed is focusing on simply being consistent in typing and not listening to anyone else when they tell me that I should type homerow. While I do agree with them that it is better, if I did that it would take me more hours of hard work and dedication in my life. I currently type with four fingers, and I honestly love it. While it may not be the healthiest way, I still love it, and it is how I type. Typing should be something you enjoy, so keep it fun!
- Crush on a Friend's Crush: Update
I have chosen not to take the risk of losing my friendship. I got to thinking about it and my friendship with one of my best friends is more important than a boy. I am not going to let one little crush get in the way of something that is bigger than a crush - a best friend of a lifetime.
