  1. there's a seat over here by me...

  2. Sending hugs and hope tomorrow is a brighter day!


  3. I wanted to cheer you up, but since I have no idea what you're discouraged about, it was hard to know where to start. So I thought I'd send you a sampler pack of encouraging words:

    “Don't let the muggles get you down.”
    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    “Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report written on birds that he'd had three months to write, which was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books about birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, "Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.”
    ― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

    “Sometimes the best goal you can set is just to get out of bed every day. If you can succeed at this, then other things become possible.”
    ― Cynthia Patterson



    1. thanks Sofia, I loved these. Fucking muggles.

      and the one that's probably the closest and most relevant is "Just take it bird by bird"

      Thanks for the love,
