Some flowers are withered and some joys have died; The garden reeks with an East Indian scent From beds where gillyflowers stand weak and spent; The white heat pales the skies from side to side; But in still lakes and rivers, cool, content, Like starry blooms on a new firmament, White lilies float and regally abide. In vain the cruel skies their hot rays shed; The lily does not feel their brazen glare. In vain the pallid clouds refuse to share Their dews, the lily feels no thirst, no dread. Unharmed she lifts her queenly face and head; She drinks of living waters and keeps fair. ~Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar Of Sonnets: July
My Recent Thoughts + Health!
well, the month hasn’t been *that* bad?? i had lots of fun at school. i found my new friend group and honestly ~it’s worth it~ i’m trying to get my life together aaaa i really want to write this diary series/a story of well *something* (sry i just can’t mention it otherwise im going to get interrogated at school aha…) but i seem to have forgotten how to write.
i saw these cute html websites (https://nuange.neocities.org/) and my god the urge to build one/revamp right now is insane. but i don’t know shit about html 😂 nor do i have the time or motivation to revamp my website right now. so if you guys have any tutorials, drop them below!
like i mentioned in my june wrap-up, i have exams going on! i’ll be writing my math exam tomorrow and~~~ yeah. i hope i’ll do well 💜
Pretty Words I Came Across!
"everyone loves what they can't have." (I actually absent minded-ly said that to one of my friends and he was like "That shit hurt, twice." and we just laughed about it~)
may you attract someone who speaks your language so you don't have to spend half your lifetime translating your soul.
"everyone can love a rose, but it takes a lot to love a leaf" It's ordinary to love the beautiful but it's beautiful to love the ordinary.
how terrible it is - to be called beautiful, smart and strong but end up being alone every night.
too tired to stay, too scared to leave.
