Because our needs are our little daily dreams. The little things to be done that project us into tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, the future; trivial things that we plan to buy next week, allowing us to think that next week we’ll still be alive.
It’s the need for a nonslip bath mat that keeps us going. Or for a couscous steamer. A potato peeler. So we stagger our purchases. We program the places where we’ll go for them. Sometimes we draw comparisons. An expensive iron versus a cheaper iron. We fill our cupboards slowly, our drawers one by one. You can spend your life filling a house, and when it’s full you break things so that you can replace them and have something to do the next day. You can even go so far as to break up a relationship in order to project yourself into another story, another future, another house.
Another life to fill."

RIP Geoff. I miss you so much.
"Everyone across the world, they condemned the attack in strong words, and they prayed for my daughter. But she’s not only my daughter. She’s the daughter of everybody. The sister of everybody."

"Hong Kong has not yet become another Tiananmen, but the fact they are being spoken of in the same breath shows how little Beijing cares what the rest of the world thinks."
My city is in chaos.
This is what’s happening to Hong Kong right this minute.
It is difficult for me to put into words, but simply put, University students started a class boycott movement demanding democracy and universal suffrage from the Hong Kong and Chinese…
This made me laugh, cry, smile, and cry again. Love <3
