"The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others."

- William Phelps

"Did you ever notice you are pretty good at deflecting questions and not answering them? It’s like you turn my question into yours without even answering it. You have quite a skill."

- A text I got recently from a friend of mine who caught on. Gotta give him credit! Most people never notice and feel close to me because I allow them to open up even though I don’t do the same.

Lightly lightly lightly.

People flock to me when I’m light and fun and happy. I am more than capable of handling my darker side all on my own yet some insist on trying to see past the walls and help, only to run away quickly or drown in the process. Everyone should do themselves a favor and be content with light and fun and happy. Let me handle the rest.

"The most independent of all the types, INTJs want their mates to be independent as well, able to stand up to the sometimes formidable strength of their personality… Make no mistake, the emotions of an INTJ are hard to read, and neither a male nor female of this type is apt to be very outgoing or emotionally expressive. On the contrary, they have a strong need for privacy, and they do not enjoy physical contact except with a chosen few. For all that, however, Masterminds are deeply emotional, even romantic types, and once they have decided a person is worthy of them, they make passionate and loyal mates, almost hypersensitive to signals of rejection from their loved one."

"People are rivers, always ready to move from one state of being into another. It is not fair, to treat people as if they are finished beings. Everyone is always becoming and unbecoming."

So by my house is an ice cream place called ChillN. It makes ice cream that’s frozen using LIQUID NITROGEN! So they get the base - ice cream or frozen yogurt - and then they add the flavor (say you order Nutella ice cream, they add actual Nutella to the base. Same for the other favors). Then, they put it into these mixing bowls and start mixing, and then in the middle of mixing they just shoot out a bunch of Nitrogen and I swear to God that shit looks like a fucking witch’s cauldron. After that, they add the “Mix-N’s,” and there you go. Fucking Nitrogen ice cream. The reason is that since it cools it super fast, the ice crystals don’t grow as big so that you get INCREDIBLY smooth ice cream. It’s literally the coolest shit ever.

(Ice cream pictured above: Nutella with marshmallows and caramel)

DID YOU SAY NUTELLA MARSHMALLOW CARAMEL ICE CREAM?!

amoebism:

Several months ago, I dropped and shattered a teacup saucer that my aunt gifted to me shortly before she passed away. I was devastated. Before leaving to go for a walk to cool off, I threw the pieces in the garbage and left to go have a good cry.
While I was out, my spouse carefully gathered up all the little pieces and saved them without saying a word to me, just gave me a hug and comforted me when I got back. He then sought out an elderly couple who repair china in their spare time and got them to fix it for me! It took months because they were quite busy, so there was plenty of time for me to forget all about it.
I came home last night to the teacup and saucer sitting on a table with this note.
This means so much to me, on so many levels. I love and feel loved at a time when I really, truly need it.
