Excited. Nervous. Ready.

Race day tomorrow! I pray that my knee doesn’t give out and that I do well for my parents sake. Got to remember though to have fun with it and smile :)


Ernest Hemingway to F. Scott Fitzgerald: “Kiss My Ass”
Hemingway once sent F. Scott Fitzgerald a typescript of A Farewell to Arms. Fitzgerald sent back ten pages of edits and comments, signing off with “A beautiful book it is!”. You can see Hemingway’s first reaction above (signed EH).

Can we just take a break from your regularly schedule content to talk about how the rivalry between these two is one of my favorite things of all time.

Kyoto is formerly the imperial capital of Japan, hence, it is teeming with rich cultural spots and locations that are worth-visiting!  These are so many things you can do in Kyoto, but according to the recommendation of JapanLover Carly ofwww.carly-rose.com (thank you!), these are the top 10 things to do in Kyoto!

"you would be so pretty if you just lost weight/gained weight/wore more makeup/wore less makeup/dressed differently/changed part of your appearance to fit my entirely arbitrary standards"

And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.
