"There’s a time for silence, and there’s a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel,and you so clearly know what you need to say,you’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait.I think you should speak now.”

here college has these initiation rituals that are supposed to make you feel like you fit in and initiate you into your college life and such, but from what i’ve seen around town from the university i’m going to, people are really mean and they make you knee before them and don’t let you look directly into their eyes and just humiliate you under the excuse of preparing you for your life (and make some fun games but unfortunately that’s like a small portion of it) and i was bullied for a huge part of my teenage years and you have no idea how scared im of that initiation ritual because it’ll remind me of what i went through but not participating is looked down upon and you are sort of ~ejected~ from most college life stuff if you don’t participate and some people in my family are really serious about those initiation rituals and even though my mom and dad and boyfriend and sister really support me not participating idk what i’m supposed to do and it starts in 16 days and i’m so scared

Thank you so much for sending these, anon :)

1. What eye color do you find sexiest? Ah, I’m not sure? I don’t think the sex appeal is in the eye color itself, maybe more so in the eye shape or even how they look at you? But green eyes and blue eyes are absolutely gorgeous.

12. Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing set? YES! I didn’t learn how to swing myself until very late in my childhood (why did you neglect such an important part of my upbringing parents?), but I loved doing it, and if there’s a swing set and no kids are around to use it and I am with people I feel 100% comfortable with, I’ll go and swing because it’s awesome. 

28. If you had to look at one city skyline for the rest of your life, what would it be? I usually call where I live a ‘town’ (because in Portuguese we don’t really have a clear distinction between town and city), but supposedly I’m supposed to call it a city, so I’ll have to go with my city. It’s where I’d like to live for the rest of my life, and a place I love with all my heart.

Please send me numbers from here? :)

your eyes look like coming home…

When I was a teenager I felt like we were always being stereotyped as being really intense and dramatic and passionate and hopelessly romantic and excitable, now in retrospect I think I need to let you know those things are amazing. I hope you never lose those things.”
