“I get drunk on chard courtesy of the department, try to explain snapchat to his wife, call everyone on my committee “honey”, confide in Other Luminary that I’ve been having this dream in which a purple-faced woman calls me “pigeon hearted”” – Via DANIELLE’s edwardsaidruinedthenutcracker http://ift.tt/1Naj0kz
“He knows that she considered saying “I’ve been seeing someone” but has decided against it. He is thankful for this mercy.” – In the months after they broke up, he had begun watching porn regularly, even compulsively. It was satisfying to watch these scenes, never repeated in the bottomless and shifting buffet of thumbnails, yet formulaic, familiar, mannered; to view this endless fuck, dead inside, the black men fucking the latina teens dead inside, the horny cam girls dead inside, the creamy cumsluts dead inside, the hot and horny schoolgirls and their bald teachers in ill-fitting suits dead inside, the hungry, hungry girls, all of it ending and without consequence. He watched it in his room with the sound off while his flatmate was in the kitchen or in the living room; quietly, like someone else might cry in a bathroom stall.

“I got a tattoo, walking without feeling anything particular out of my apartment with my hair still wet from the shower ..into the next-door piercing shop and into the next appointment, which was available. It is either impulsivity or curiosity to know what it is like to feel anything at all” – edwardsaidruinedthenutcracker.tumblr.com http://ift.tt/1LI5Dfk
“all curated personality, leather shoes, fashionable hair – I assumed that he was handsome and I slept with him. Sleeping beside this stranger I had a dream that no matter what I did, I could say “but we all know this is a dream,” and continue as if it had never happened.” – edwardsaidruinedthenutcracker.tumblr.com, danielle http://ift.tt/1iDbJBS
“I do like people, for the most part, but none of them can hurt me at all and I know this in advance. In this way, I feel at times that I am dealing in fiat currency, that I am being unfair. When I joke that I am a sociopath, this is what I mean. I was intensely happy with Alex and felt almost nothing when I broke up with him, which I knew I would do from the very beginning.” – edwardsaidruinedthenutcracker.tumblr.com, Danielle http://ift.tt/1NUZz3d
