As we were approaching the Fort Pitt Tunnel, Sam asked Patrick to pull to the side of the road. I didn’t know what was going on. Sam then climbed in the back of the pickup, wearing nothing but her dance dress. She told Patrick to drive, and he got this smile on his face. I guess they had done this before.
Anyway, Patrick started driving really fast, and just before we got to the tunnel, Sam stood up, and the wind turned her dress into ocean waves. When we hit the tunnel, all the sound got scooped up into a vacuum, and it was replaced by a song on the tape player. A beautiful song called “Landslide.” When we got out of the tunnel, Sam screamed this really fun scream, and there it was. Downtown. Lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. Sam sat down and started laughing. Patrick started laughing. I started laughing.
it’s nice having two diff blogs because on childrenofthecity, it’s mostly just things that appeal to people visually, and while that can show personality, i really really really miss swearing on my personal blog hahaha.
anyways, just wanted to check in with the mantra of the day.
there’s this person i know who’s kind of being…. manipulated (for a lack of a better word) i guess by some friends… i’m not trying to get super involved with it but still, it makes me sad to see that this person is so sad/upset by it. and i was thinking about it… and i honestly think that sometimes doing what’s considered “right” (in the moral sense of the word) isn’t always the best way to go. sometimes people have to chose for themselves what they want to have happen in their lives, and they alone deal with their consequences. we all want to give advice to people, but we don’t realize that our group opinions (which eventually form into an outcome) can have serious consequences that that one person alone must deal with. we may be affected by it a little, but in all reality, the person who must make the choice deals with the burden alone. if someone takes the time to tell you about something that has hurt them, obviously it’s okay to form an opinion. but idk, personally, forcing your opinion onto someone else is just as bad as forcing religion or forcing political views. letting someone know how you feel? totes mcgotes okay. i know we all have good intentions inside and that helping a friend is honestly one of the nicest things anyone can do. but sometimes doing what you think is right vs. what is morally right can produce a better outcome.
in conclusion, i just want to say that no matter how pressing friends are, against you or with you, you really have to stand up for yourself and what you believe in. if you think something is right, then go for it. life’s too short.
My friend and I made a collab blog that’s pretty sick. Urban/hipster/architecture. This tumblr is more of my personal blog, but the one we have together is a little more… better. Less annoying. Less personal. More….. amazing.
For all the anchor pics. I just had a rough patch in my life that I had to deal with, and the symbol of an anchor really helped me. It just reminds me not to get down, and to never sink. Even though an anchor sinks…. meh. Bear with me.
Just wanted to say that despite everything shitty that happens in life, there will always be light for those who look for it.
Not to be that girl who preaches and shiet, I promise I’m not like that.
