I hope you fall in love with a man with good music taste and a jawline stronger than your wifi connection
WHY DO HIGH SCHOOL BOYS WEAR TUXEDOS TO PROM
1. they look stupid
2. they never fit correctly
3. it’s freaking hot. you take the jacket off immediately
4. THEY LOOK STUPID
so i’m basically planning my brother’s prom.
he’s taking one of his friends and she’s wearing a sparkly champagne dress.
I’m planning on putting him in a white shirt, black suspenders, champagne bow tie, black pants, and black and white vans. he pretty much dresses super trendy all the time so i don’t think it’ll be weird if he’s a little casual.
don’t cross oceans for people who wouldn’t cross a puddle for you.
No, do it. Do cross oceans for people. Love people, all people. No conditions attached, no wondering wether or not they’re worthy. Cross oceans, climb mountains. Life and love isn’t about what you gain, it’s about what you give.
FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT! Amen!
I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
We need big, reimagined, Jesus kind of love, and people willing to sacrifice themselves in order to live it with us. We need people who will love us enough to get messy.
So be deeply involved. Be covered in someone’s tears. Be the person who gets the call at midnight. Be the person who hears the gory details when someone’s marriage or career falls apart. Be the person who tells someone the hard stuff that they need to hear but no one wants to say. Be the person who repeatedly gets someone else’s mud and blood all over you. Be the person who goes home a little uncomfortable at night, not because of your behavior and thoughts, but because you’ve been near enough to someone else’s.
Be a family member to the lonely, messy people of this world, and to my generation."
