Katie, 20-something, aus
loves tequila and long walks on the beach and is a ridiculous person


today i realised that it’s okay if the boy isn’t that into me. 

i’m into me. i’m amazing. i was here before, i’ll be here after and someone else’s opinion doesn’t mean diddly squat for my self worth. 

he’d be lucky to have me, but it’s okay if he doesn’t want me. 



Daughter passed a milestone today


my roommate is 2 days younger than me so i’ve gotten into the habit of saying “when i was your age..” and then describing what i did 2 days ago

An update to the front of my room! Fistbump portraits for me and the music teacher. And yes, now everyone wants one, hehe. #Artteacher #elementaryart #elementarymusic #musicteacher

If I had a classroom next to mine I would totally steal this idea!

um, totally e-mailing this to the music therapist next door to my art room.

1. If he doesn’t answer, don’t keep sending texts. If he wanted to talk to you, he would’ve responded.

2. People will make time for you when they care about you. If he says he’s too busy or constantly cancels his plans, he doesn’t care. People fight for you when they care.

3. Don’t let him touch you on the first date. If he tries, he’s not there for the same reasons you are.

4. You can tell a lot about a person by their favorite book.

5. If he can stomach more than ten straight shots without feeling a thing, he drinks too much.

6. Ask the uncomfortable things. When was the last time he was so high he couldn’t speak? What does he regret the most? Does he drink to remember or to forget?

7. Don’t send pictures unless you want to. If he has to talk you into it, don’t do it. If you hesitate, don’t do it. If you do take a picture, don’t include your face. Keep yourself safe.

8. If you can’t laugh when you’re having sex with him, maybe you aren’t sleeping with the right person. Sex isn’t about tricks and tips and routines.

9. If he hurts you, cut him out. He’s gone, he isn’t coming back, and you don’t need to prolong the pain.

10. Don’t be afraid to open up again. I promise not everyone will love you with a knife behind their back.

we’ve all got that weird pretty big secret that we don’t really hide but like we don’t flaunt it like “My brother died of cancer” or “I’m gay” or “I tried to kill myself last year” or anything really and when you find out somebody’s big plot twist you know you’re in this friendship for the long run
