ampersandria Narrator: "You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O'Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?" Fight Club is my very favorite movie & I think about this a lot. and how really, every single day, we all wake up as slightly different people. we learn things and we forget things and every single day we are a tiny bit different than we were yesterday. my job allows me to meet 1,000+ people a day & then go to a hotel room and be very, very alone. I get paid to smile & be nice and talk to people all day long, but when I get to my hotel room, I can be a different person entirely. I can be anonymous. I can be anybody, I can be somebody, I can be nobody. I can wear long sleeves, I can wear short sleeves, I can wear my hair curly, or straight, lipstick or not. Red dress blue dress black tights nude tights, it doesn't matter as long as I treat people right.
I've found that I've become the best version of myself by accepting that Everything Matters and Nothing Really Matters all at the same time. Life is best when you try to find a really good balance of Giving None of the Fucks and All of the Fucks at the same time

  •   ampersandria no one knows the perfect science on the balance of amount of Fucks to give. not even scientists! not your stupid cousin or whatever that thinks he does & not Einstein, or Beyoncé, or even Judge Judy. and I don't *think* Ghandi has all the answers but he certainly had a few. The thing is, we all have to show up & try a Little Bit every single day. some days are really really really really hard and on those days you can stay in bed. but other days you've gotta get up. and get out. because some days are so damn Good. but you've gotta have a few shit days to make the good ones seem great. you'll go through relationships and breakups and you might fall in love 1,000 times or maybe just one time. but all the times matter. you learn something about yourself & each other and everyone else around you. but make it all count. because none of us, not even one, knows what's Next. 3d

ampersandria when I was in London, I met this cool polite girl with a nice top and we became instant pals and I fishtail braided her graying hair. we got Thai food and a couple of beers and talked in each other's accents. I didn't get her number or even her last name but I like to think that we'll be friends forever. 1w

ampersandria this is how it works:
you're young until you're not.
you love until you don't
you try until you can't
you laugh until you cry
you cry until you laugh
& everyone must breathe
until their dying breath
