  1. Most pain is only temporary, but other kinds of pain rise and spread like yeast into something too dense for any stomach to handle. The seeds of pain are the seeds we sow with our own hands- when we view our bodies as mistakes or as places to carve map lines into without having a clue about the destination.
  2. Hands are the only parts of the body that speak real language. Whether they shake or remain still, whether they reach out or stay clenched, they reveal the entire universe.
  3. Some parents tell their children they’re beautiful because in the midst of a darkness that deep, they don’t know what else to say. It doesn’t mean their children aren’t really beautiful; it just means that sometimes words aren’t enough to close wounds.
  4. When a couple throws salt over their shoulder at a wedding, it doesn’t always symbolize a tradition or the start of a new life. In some cases, it just symbolizes a life being thrown away, a life both of them would rather have spent alone. Because sooner or later, we all end up wishing for silence.
  5. It’s not anarchy to love yourself. It’s forgiveness.
  6. Most of the time when someone lies awake at night and thinks about someone else so much that they’re unable to fall asleep, it’s because they’d rather be awake with the thought of another person besides themselves circling their head.
  7. Some people love until the very end. The ones who love from the very beginning are the rarest of all.
  8. That magic trick that involves an audience member’s body supposedly being cut in half is really just a metaphor for breakups. One half of your body is your own, and the other half belongs to the person you used to be with. The hardest part is learning how to get rid of their half and become yourself again.
  9. Tattoos represent all the words a person never had the courage to say aloud. Skin speaks louder than vocal cords ever could.
  10. Regret is more powerful than any poison.
  11. Sometimes home isn’t a place, but a person.
  12. Every neuron in the brain means something. Even though human beings are so complex, it’s still too simple to be sad.
  13. The greatest love affair you’ll ever miss out on is yourself.

Students who still have a lot ahead of them. Students like me, who still have dreams, goals, and students who still aim for achievements. But because of this tragedy, it all faded away. 

I bow and salute to the brave students who saved the lives of others and sacrificed themselves. They are heroes. They are people who deserves a lot better than awards. They deserve to be in Heaven, a place full of happiness and there will be no more sufferings. I also pray for the lives of the family and the people involved in this accident and specially the souls of these heroes.

I hope that the students who were saved by these mighty students will live their lives to the fullest, achieve their dreams and goals and love their family more. I also wish that they will live being inspired by the heroes who saved their lives. Please do so.

And for the captain, my middle finger salutes you. Live well. In guilt. Thank you.

when girls think they are better than other girls because they are tomboys who engage in stereotypically “male” activities it makes me want to actually gouge my own eyes out because they are pretty much reinforcing the patriarchal idea that men are better than women without even realizing it and that is just incredibly sad

The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, ‘It’s okay.’ It’s okay for me to be kind to myself. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to get mad. It’s okay to be flawed. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to move on.
