The first time somebody asked me to dance was on an impromptu dance floor after an unbelievably fun round of karaoke. He was a stranger just the day before and a valued teammate the day of. He lived halfway across the country. I didn’t understand how somebody so foreign, so unfamiliar, could have the courage to make a move while all of the guys back home couldn’t even put up the effort or time to respond back to the girl who dared to care so much about them. He, a stranger, actually gave a SHT and cared to help the girl have the time of her life even if just for a few minutes.

GOSH this is beautiful

A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning

BY JOHN DONNE
As virtuous men pass mildly away,
   And whisper to their souls to go,
Whilst some of their sad friends do say
   The breath goes now, and some say, no.
So let us melt, and make no noise,
   No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move;
‘Twere profanation of our joys
   To tell the laity our love.
Moving of th’ earth brings harms and fears,
   Men reckon what it did, and meant;
But trepidation of the spheres,
   Though greater far, is innocent.
Dull sublunary lovers’ love
   (Whose soul is sense) cannot admit
Absence, because it doth remove
   Those things which elemented it.
But we by a love so much refined,
   That our selves know not what it is,
Inter-assured of the mind,
   Care less, eyes, lips, and hands to miss.
Our two souls therefore, which are one,
   Though I must go, endure not yet
A breach, but an expansion,
   Like gold to airy thinness beat.
If they be two, they are two so
   As stiff twin compasses are two;
Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show
   To move, but doth, if the other do.
And though it in the center sit,
   Yet when the other far doth roam,
It leans and hearkens after it,
   And grows erect, as that comes home.
Such wilt thou be to me, who must,
   Like th’ other foot, obliquely run;
Thy firmness makes my circle just,
   And makes me end where I begun.

Hearing about friends who drink in college makes me feel like such a failure

after I spent an entire summer conducting research on the effects alcohol has on the body
