Think Before You Act
Think before you act and then, when you do act, take full ownership of your actions — good or bad. Success is easy to own, but when your actions lead to failure, take responsibility.

A Miracle Word
Every word you give me is a miracle word — how could I help but obey? Break open your words, let the light shine out, let ordinary people see the meaning. Mouth open and panting, I wanted your commands more than anything.   Psalm 119:129-131

Quote
"I think it’s great for two people to be together. That is a good number. I think, that to keep it alive though, you can’t spend every day together. It wears out the magic, Love means nothing to me if it’s not fortified with fierce, painful longing, brief explosive instances of furious passion and intimacy and then a sad parting for a time. In that way, you can give your life to it and still have a life of your own. I think some couples spend too much time together. They flatten out the potential for experience by constant closeness. Passion builds over time like steam. Let it rage until it’s exhausted and then leave it alone to let it build up again. Why can’t love be insane and distorted? How can it be vital if it has the same threshold as normal day-to-day experience? Why can’t you write burning letters and let your nocturnal self smolder with desire for one who is not there? Why not let the days before you see her be excruciating and ferment in your mind so on the day you go to the airport to pick her up, you’re nearly sick with anticipation? And then when desire shows the first sign of contentment, throw it back it its cage and let it slowly build itself back into a state of starved fury. Then when you are together, it all matters. So that when you look into her eyes, you lose your balance, so that when she touches you, it feels like you have never been touched before. When she says your name, you think it was she who named you. When she has gone, you bury your face in the pillow to smell her hair and you lie awake at night remembering your face in her neck, her breathing and the amazing smell of her skin. Your eyes go wet because you want her so bad and miss her so much. Now that is worth the miles and the time. That matches the inferno of life. Otherwise you poison each other with your presence day after day as you drag each other through the inevitable mundane aspects of your lives. That is the slow death that I see slapped on faces everywhere I go. It’s part of the world’s sadness that’s more empty than cold, poorly lit rooms in cities of the American night."

— Henry Rollins  (via albinwonderland)

Things didn’t change, I changed…

So after four years of HS in U.S, I didn’t notice some changes within myself. However, this little change exposes in the past four days. 

Cali is very lay back, chill and I live on a pace which I enjoy. Everyone in Taiwan is not quite the same as me. Scooters, people, and cars  are all over the place (which is what they have been since the day I was born I assumed). My mom drives Taxi style, and I am scared to death.

Today I went to buy shoes. As I was just about to look at the new Vans, the sales already ask me which one I want. I was like, “Really?” “Can I have more time please?” I told her I need more time to decide. Again, I look at different shelves, and she seems to be in a hurry of some matter. She immediately ask me again did I decide yet? … .

——————

I am used to almost everything in California, so my body and my mind failed to function the past four days. I am having a major culture shock by my own culture. Ironic yeah?

P.S
I’ve also been thinking about the very important question I really want an answer to.
That would be the life I want to live when I graduate from college, where I want to be, what kind of people do I want around me. This is freaking difficult, and troublesome and extremely mind boggling  … TvT

Tip for Short People
If you want to keep ice cream all for yourself, put it on the bottom shelf of the freezer. Taller people don’t look there. Ever.



P.S Again, why is this in the book???
