"It’s all fine to say, “Time will heal everything, this too shall pass. People will forget” -and things like that when you are not involved, but when you are there is no passage of time, people do not forget and you are in the middle of something that does not change."

— John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

So Valentine’s Day was phenomenal this year.

Eric got me a Kindle Fire. He said he was worried that I wouldn’t like it because I love actual books so much, but I explained to him that there’s nothing stopping me from having both. I absolutely love this thing. I’m actually writing this post on my Kindle right now because it has apps and INTERNET. It’s amazing. Also, I love that I can buy books on here for dirt cheap prices. If the book sucked, then I can just delete it and pretend it never happened. But if it’s a book I ended up loving, then I can actually go out and buy a hard copy for my bookshelf. It saves a lot of time and space around the apartment.

It’ll also be nice for the next time we go on vacation. I can just pack this one Kindle instead of having to pack 5 books and a laptop.

I have the best boyfriend in the world.

"And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…"

— The Amber Spyglass, by Philip Pullman (via spookyghostxvx)
