Anonymous asked: dear vincent, how are you today? I'm going to ask another question: do you ever think about time travel and if you do, can you answer me this: if you had only one chance to travel back in time, or to the future, where would your destination be?
i’m well, sorry i’m only answering your question right now. been at work all day. and yes, i do think about time travel at times when i find myself dazed and daydreaming about completely random trivial things. this is a tough question to answer because the first thing that comes to mind is traveling back in time when dinosaurs existed and or possibly the future, like future as in around the year 3000. i would just be curious what would earth look like and how humans exist on a daily basis and how technology, communication and pop culture have changed dramatically. how about you? where would you travel in time?

i’m exhausted. i need to bring back the focus on me. i’m tired of throwing myself around someone who doesn’t care at all.

Absence of Water (2012)
These images are part of a project called “Absence of Water”, which documents derelict lidos and baths in England. The Series is an historical archive and draws attention to the increasing number of public swimming pools that have closed in the last few decades. Deserted of human life these decaying landscapes provoke a profound feeling of human absence and nostalgia for a lost past. Having been built in the late Victorian period, public lidos and baths were at the peak of their popularity in the 1930s. Gradually, living conditions and tastes have changed, resulting in a drop of attendances, leaving the public pools uneconomical to run. Many fell into decay and were demolished. Symbols of civic and architectural pride in Victorian times, today only a handful of them remain as a representation of bygone era.

1:08 am - ramblings
what i’ve started to realize these last couple of weeks is that it takes so much more effort to remain true to yourself and what you want to be about each and every day. it’s so easy to fall off the wagon and just spiral down into someone you don’t want to be, through that you have a tendency to lose sight of your goals and stunt your personal growth.
I try to focus on me and what i want to be and how i want my life to blossom. i need personal growth, but most of all i need be able to handle the obstacles thrown in my way. i need to be okay with losing. i need to be okay with being vulnerable. i need to be stronger for myself. i just need to forget about you, but most of all i need to put my ego aside and just remain humble and be okay with the fact that i let myself completely open to you. i was vulnerable and i was honest, and what comes along with that is this feeling of inadequacy and shame. i can’t help how i feel, but it is what it is and all i can really do to move forward is to purge it out onto words someway somehow, even if it’s messy.
i’ve lost myself these last couple of weeks. i’ve lost track of what’s important to me and what i really want for myself, instead i’ve focused all my energy on you and trying to dance around what i’ve been feeling for you, but i’m okay now. i know now what i need to be and who i should be putting my energy and love to. i really do feel pathetic and ashamed for all of this, if i’ve told anyone else no one would probably understand how or why i would feel so saddened by such a trivial little thing, but so it goes. i am who i am and my inner workings are the way they are for whatever reason. i will deal with it, i’ll cope someway somehow like i always do. i’ll be okay eventually as time passes by. i’ll turn these feelings into words and through that i will heal. i will cling to what is good and i will pour my love to myself and to the few who have always been there for me. someday you’ll just be a blemish of evidence in a time when i decided to take a chance on someone, but failed. you’re a risk i took in a moment of courage. i tried my best and i failed and i will keep making mistakes and i will continue to have short comings and i need to learn to be okay with all of it, i need to learn to be okay with unrequited love. i need to stop believing in people so easily and i need to stop letting pretty little words get the best of me. i need to learn to be happy alone, i need to rely on no one but myself. from now on i’ll lay low and keep fighting the good fight in a silent fervor.
A new book argues that the emotion happens in “micro-moments of positivity resonance.”
do you ever stop and realize that people probably discuss you from time to time when you aren’t around to witness it
not even in a specifically positive or negative way just like
people mention you, or think of you, you occur to people sometimes
thats the most unnerving thing that i can think of, thats so weird, that i exist to people when im not even interacting with them
okay it’s been awhile since i’ve done this, but if you’d like a mix cd please let me know. give me any kind of theme or overall feel you’d want the mix to be and i’ll try and do so. give me your name and address as well please?
