Who’s your bestfriend? Tell all about them, and why they are your bestfriend.
Eesh. I have a few best friends that have been there for different times in my life. There are some where things just won’t ever change. They know who they are and I am so grateful that they kick my ass when I start to lose it but are there to catch me if I fall. Love y’all dearly <3 Whos the person you feel closest to at this time
Other than my best friends, I feel really close to J. I can’t give a verbal reason as to why. He just is.

Post a song that you will never get tired of hearing
"The fact is, most criminals practice terrible surveillance tradecraft. They are permitted to succeed in spite of their lack of skill because, for the most part, people simply do not practice good situational awareness."
The Kaspersky Kidnapping - Lesson Learned by Stratfor
Seriously, everyone needs to be more aware of their boundaries. Even if you have your headphones in, you should constantly be looking around. If you’re walking late at night and alone. Don’t be stupid. Listening to music or chatting on the phone to someone is actually a terrible idea. You don’t pay enough attention. I know everyone argues that if something happens, the person you’re on the phone with can call 911. However, If you’re literally chatting away, you’re not going to notice you’re in trouble in the first place. Just keep that in mind. Be safe and aware.
But I set fire to the rain, Watch it pour as I touched your face, Let it burn while I cry, Cause I heard it screaming at your name, your name! I set fire to the rain And I feel lost into the… And it felt something nice, Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!
“If there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, and we will give it walls, and we will furnish it with soft, red interiors, from the inside out, and give it a knocker that resonates like a diamond falling to a jeweller’s felt so that we should never hear it. Love me, because love doesn’t exist, and I have tried everything that does.”—Jonathan Safran Foer (Everything is Illuminated)

Well didn’t this just break my heart. I can not go on enough about how much respect and adoration I have for the men fighting and their women at home. God bless you all. I am almost in tears now! I have a total weakness for soldiers…
Once you date someone in the military, you’ll never be able to go back to civilians.
I promise to listen. On good and bad days. When work is terrible and when work is boring. When the market is up and when the market is down. When you can barely stand someone and when the new kid surprises you by stepping up. And through all of this, I will not only listen but I will hear you.
