"No matter how careful you are, there’s going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn’t experience it all. There’s that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should’ve been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That’s how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice."

— Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters   (via adieufranz)

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."

Record.
Sometimes I wish my life was on record. I could put on disc and listen to old conversations playing that I have forgotten with people whose faces I no longer remember. I could watch a video so I can laugh at the stupid moments I had, smile at those times when I was happy, and cry for the times I faced hardships. I know that what our memories are for; but I was wish it was more crisp and didn’t have pieces missing from it.  
Though I know it’s impossible for the length of it would be far too long, would you want to watch every part of your life unfold? We would see ourselves as kids with the world open with possibility. We would see ourselves as teenagers doing things that only teenagers do. We might eventually see ourselves falling in love or getting married and having a family. 
If we were able to see our live unfold…maybe we would finally understand how much we have grown and how far we have come. We might realize the differences we made in peoples lives and how we were able to overcome things we never though we could of at the time. Maybe…we would realize how amazing we are - that even when we feel stuck in life or at a standstill, we’re actually growing still after having already gone through much.

"I guess I look for people who are obsessive about what their obsessed about, because I do like obsessive people. I like people who are interested in fashion or design or travel or books far more than anyone should be. Where, even if they didn’t work in it, at some point during the day, their brain clicks over to it. And who are interested in it beyond how it affects them. There are people who work in fashion because they look fashionable, but then there are people in fashion because, even if they had to spend the rest of their lives wearing only a pajama, they’d be thinking about what other people would be wearing."
