I wanted to write about you but I had nothing left to say. Gone were the times you’d give me the time of day.-J.K. Mann @keep_calm_mann


Happy Birthday Dad

Your physical body may have left this Earth but your spirit resides inside my soul. People say I remind them of you and it always makes me smile because you are exactly who I want to embody. You are me, and I am you. Imperfect, adventurous, carefree, and so in love with life. If I had a chance I would’ve cared for my family like you cared for yours but dynamics changed and it all became so strange. I looked around and no one but Mom came. Dad, I hated myself for years but I fought through the tears. I love myself even more now when I remember I am my father’s daughter. All your negatives and positives I want to foster. P.S. I know you totally dig my new tattoos. The roman numeral seven’s just for you 😉

4)Make her feel like Fleur but treat her like Lavender. -J.K. Mann @Keep_calm_mann

In the movie, the lead character just kind of disappeared. He needed to clear his head, so he left a business meeting, and wasn’t heard from for a week. Everybody was wondering, “Where is he?” And his co-workers had to make all these excuses to cover for him. Nobody knew where he was! And no one could do anything about it. That was the whole beauty of it. It made me think about modern times and how were so accessible all the time. The phone is always by our side, like it’s a significant other. People go on it while their driving, taking a shower, and take it to the beach with them. You can barely watch a TV show nowadays that…
