i feel too much.
Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment—their body is alive, there’s a light in their eyes, something—that makes you think, “I just really love you.” It’s a weird sensation to think this, but it’s pretty awesome that we can feel this way about another being.
this is exactly how i feel when i see pizza come out of the oven.

An excerpt from an email I wrote to my mom:
I hope that you will vote this year, and I hope that you vote with me for a president that believes women deserve to be paid as much as men, that women also have the right to make their own healthcare decisions, that parsing the differences between definitions “rape” is despicable, that everyone deserves access to healthcare, that our gay friends and family have the right to get married, visit each other in the hospital and all other rights that go along with that, and that Zachary [my brother in the Navy] should have a chance at college with his GI bill when he gets home, that veterans deserve support whenever and wherever they need it, and that that victims of disaster should be protected and provided for in their time of need.

i try to refrain from sounding off my political views, but i just really like the excerpt.

if there’s one thing that life constantly reminds me of, is that everyone longs to feel a sense of connection and belonging. i mean sure you can throw love out there and the need to have someone, but perhaps it’s all encompassing the same kind of fulfillment we all yearn for. i have these little moments of capturing it in strangers’ eyes or sometimes even in my friends. i see this certain amount of emptiness and lifelessness in them, a void that’s unfilled that they know is present, but somehow can’t shake off. like dust particles in a stream of light that you’re trying to grasp in the palm of your hands; you see it, you know it exists, but you can’t grab a hold of it. it’s palpable and it derails us of our sense of identity. it’s a universal feeling and sometimes it takes up most of our thoughts. i think the worst part of it all is that it makes us all seem unthankful for everything else we have in our lives. if there’s anything i’ve learned from constantly trying to chase this idea of happiness, is that it ultimately leads right back to where i was before. i’m not saying to give up on finding love, all i’m saying is that there’s so much more to life that we’re overlooking and most if it is already right in front of us, use it at your disposal. extract happiness and laughter out of it. it’s okay to feel a sense of displacement, but just don’t forget to look up once in awhile and admire the simplicity of the clouds by day and the stars by night. it’s quite astounding really when you think about just how similar we all really are, we’re tightly knit in our very core. as a collective we are one, as unique individuals we have each other. we’re all cut from the same cloth, you’re never alone.
