“I have realized that the moon
did not have to be full for us to love it,
that we are not tragedies
stranded here beneath it,
that if my heart
really broke
every time I fell from love
I’d be able to offer you confetti by now.
But hearts don’t break, y’all,
they bruise and get better.
We were never tragedies.
We were emergencies.”

Buddy Wakefield (section from We Were Emergencies)

  • I don’t know what I want to do after uni any more, I know I definitely want to become a teacher at some point - but now I’m thinking maybe I should do International Aid work for a few years before I do my Masters of Teaching, or I could go onto become a Psychologist: so at this point I’m going to keep my options open 
  • lately I keep thinking of all the different tattoos I want to get (pretty unfortunate that I have a genuine phobia of needles, but I’ve never let fear stop me before)

“You have more to do
than be weighed down
by pretty or beautiful
you are a fiery heart
and a wicked brain
do not let your soul
be defined by its shell.”

"So, my band’s working on a new album."
"Oh, yeah? What’s it called?"
"April Ludgate… Is The Best Ever. Volume One."
"Shut up."
  • Tom is in hospital again, and even though I’ve gone to see him a lot, I still miss him like a limb
  • "I love you more;" "not possible"


These lockets are anatomically correct. The locket is held shut by the trunk of the aorta, which acts as a snap. The chain attaches to the pendant through the superior vena cava and left pulmonary vein, causing the heart to hang slightly anterioinferiorly, just like our hearts!
