my name is erica. i write, rant, rave, and blog about stuff. i'm not that interesting.
Fate, to me, simply means that all the billions of microscopic actions we can’t calculate lead to consequences that feel right because they are right. They fit, they follow. We can’t see and understand all the causes behind everything, but I think it’s more magical to accept that they’re there than it is to believe that they’re not, and that something called ‘fate’ is filling all that space instead.

Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.

And I got dolled up.
I’m gonna try and not be sad or angry that you’re not coming out tonight.
I’m gonna try and not look at the door, hoping you’ll change your mind last minute
I’m gonna try and pretend that everything’s okay.
And tomorrow, I’m gonna try even hard to act like I didn’t care that you didn’t show.
I’m gonna try and act like I don’t like you
And on the drive home, I’m not gonna cry.
I’m gonna try not to cry.
Most importantly I’m gonna try and get over you…
Nobody likes a debbie downer, and all my tumblr is these days is rants about how much you suck and how much I like you and how much you suck.
You’re just a girl, what do you know about makeup?
