you're my butterfly, sugar, baby

“your mental health comes before school baby, always. if its midnight, and you have an exam the next day but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that carton of ben and jerry’s and afterwards, go the fuck to bed. so what if you get a 68% on the exam the next day? you took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. to hell with anyone who tells you differently.

i forget where we were

"like most sensitive souls, you already know you’re sensitive. you soak up others’ moods and desires like a sponge. you absorb sensation the way a paintbrush grasps each colour it touches on a palette. the ethereal beauty of a dandelion, the shift of a season, the climax of a song, or a certain stirring scent can evoke such wonder it’ll behave as your very breath itself - moving through cells as fuel does to fire and wind does to waves." - victoria erickson

can't go home alone again // need someone to numb the pain

serrah russell's ongoing series 'equivalents'. she rephotographs imagery using polaroid, and crops the results to change the subject matter - taking away its original meaning and thus creating these abstract narratives seen below

you can see more of her work here (and i recommend that you do, i'm in awe)
