"A long time ago I learned not to explain things to people. It misleads them into thinking they’re entitled to know everything I do."
"'Do you ever feel that way?'
I search for the words. ‘Restless. As if you haven’t really met yourself yet. As is you’d passed yourself once in the fog, and your heart leapt - ‘Ah! There I Am! I’ve been missing that piece!’ But it happens too fast, and then that part of you disappears into the fog again. And you spend the rest of your days looking for it.’"
sad? go buy a basil plant. you will still be sad but you’ll be able to make pesto in a couple months
an ideal date would be eating takeout dinner in our pjs while watching Netflix and you play with my hair
You can’t just have one kid. That’s boring. Who do they hang out with on vacation? But you also can’t have two kids because who would they talk to when they’re sick of each other? Their parents? No. Three kids? That’s no good either because if two are fighting, the third will feel the need to pick a side and that’s no fun. Or what if it’s the opposite? Two are buddy buddy, then the third will feel left out. That’s inevitable. Four. Yeah, I want to have four kids.
I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.
Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿
HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.
But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.
