the fall of a sparrow

Emily. Twenty. Australia. "But on the road that I’m on I must continue; if I do nothing, if I don’t study, if I don’t keep on trying, then I’m lost, then woe betide me. That’s how I see this, to keep on, keep
on, that’s what’s needed.." - Vincent van Gogh

All my life, I seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. My grandpa, Stanley Yelnats the second, says it’s all because of this 150 year old curse. Now, I don’t really believe in the family curse but when things go wrong, it kinda helps if you can blame it on something. And for me, things went wrong a lot. Grandpa says our destiny is sealed. Could a pair of shoes falling from the sky really be my destiny? - Holes (2003)

You can’t repeat the past. Can’t repeat the past? Why, of course you can.

If I die first, and I almost certainly will, you will be my sole heir. There’s not much in the kitty, except a set of ivory-backed hairbrushes and my library of romantic poetry, but when the time comes, these will be yours. Along with whatever we haven’t already spent on whores and whiskey.

Need to find someone to come see a Les Mis matinee with me for certain reasons, but I can’t find anyone. Bummeeeeeer.

I’ve gained a couple of Australian followers after posting this, but I’ve still only found one person who may be able to see a Les Mis matinee with me. Hey?

Haven’t you heard the word of your body? (x)

I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags. Even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us. A Little Princess (1995, dir. Alfonso Cuarón)




From beginning to end. I think that it’s interesting that with everyone who’s deaths were shown, they show the death as the end of them, but not Laertes. They show Laertes’ end as hearing of Ophelia’s death. That’s interesting.

Horatio’s “death” also happens to be Hamlet dying. Which might be because it’s the last shot of him in this performance, but it feels so painfully significant.

I think I probably see Hamlet’s death as sorta both of their deaths b/c I totally didn’t even think that Horatio’s end wasn’t him dying, I was just like ‘yep that was his death’. 

This wasn’t my intention, but hey. Thanks for making my gif set even sadder.

how would you describe your aesthetic? i like your clothes:)

Oh, wow, thanks! Umm. I don’t think I have a particular aesthetic, though? Millie once described it as “pale shakespearean coffee hipster hobo”, but that isn’t very helpful.
