We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another, unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward or fix us in the present. We are made of layers, cells, constellations.
I’m always overcome with an incredible sense of unfairness after I spend a whole weekend with my beautiful girlfriend.
It’s essentially like going cold turkey on her presence every week, and cold turkey is hard as hell.
The only thing, really, that keeps me going is knowing that she loves me as much as I love her and that I’ll be seeing her soon because I will make it so and that when I do, I know she’ll be able to feed what I know will be the hungriest eyes I’ve ever known.
Slytherin wasn’t the only founder to leave a concealed chamber at Hogwarts— before her death, Helga Huffelpuff created a secret room which would help all students, regardless of house affiliation or purity of blood. It’s been called many things throughout the centuries; today it’s known as the Room of Requirement.

Glad to share my birthday with this guy.
One short year ago, I was about to celebrate my birthday with friends.
I remember I drinking until I was adequately drunk and then feeling crummy.
Because my girlfriend was still in Orlando for school and even though we weren’t officially together, I was already steadily falling in love with her.
This year I have the most amazing good fortune to be able to have dinner with her and my family on my birthday
And I know it’s supposed to be “my” day, but I already know I’m probably gonna be ceaselessly thanking my girlfriend for our relationship and telling her how special I think she is.

It’s funny how some people dream about finding that one special person that will make them smile and feel butterflies in their stomach all the time and I’m lucky enough to have found her and be able to type this thought on her computer while she gets ready for dinner.
