Simple things that I find pleasure in:
•Going out for breakfast by yourself
•Hearing someone laugh at their own stories
•Listening to a song that brings back good memories
•Hearing the smile in someones voice over the phone
•The sound of the trees
•Buying something online and having it arrive earlier than you expected
•Putting on a sweater that’s just been taken out of the dryer
•The sound of rain
“I’m an old hippie: I believe that family, love, and peace are very important. I was married for 11 years and had three children. My husband was a drug addict, so I got divorced. Then I met another man and lived with him for 17 years, but he was abusive and cheated on me in the end. So I gave up on love, and decided to just live my life.
I became a master gardener, and did that for 14 years. Then I ran into my high school sweetheart. I moved in with him, but he had been alone his whole life and enjoyed being alone, so our relationship didn’t work out for him. That broke my heart. Then I really gave up on love: I moved in with my mother, and found peace in gardening.”
I used to be really embarrassed when my parents would mess up their English but as I got older I realized my parents know Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, AND English.
They’re way smarter than I am. So I started to chill.
Somebody start talking about how immigrants are dumb because they can’t speak English properly. I’d fucking like to see you try and even remember four different languages, you elitist and racist fuckbaby.
