Some things I’ll miss from 2011.
So ready for another year of laughs, new friends, and hell, I’m even ready for the drama..
Thanks to all the amazing people who helped me through the year and all the friends I’ve made on Tumblr.
I really wanted to add a John Green quote here, because his books and videos are another thing I loved discovering this past year but they’re all too amazing for me to pick. Here’s one I like and the link to more will be under that. Happy New Year, guys.
“Someday no one will remember that she ever existed, I wrote in my notebook, and then, or that I did. Because memories fall apart, too. And then you’re left with nothing, left not even with a ghost but with its shadow. In the beginning, she had haunted me, haunted my dreams, but even now, just weeks later, she was slipping away, falling apart in my memory and everyone else’s…”
― John Green, Looking for Alaska

The Lovers of Valdaro.
Believed to be no older than twenty years of age when death occurred.
Over 5,000 years old.
Locked in an eternal embrace.
Tragically, their story is unknown.
Ironically, they were found in the city of Mantua. In Italy.
The city Shakespeare chose to set the story of Romeo & Juliet.
I love how (what looks to be) the male is putting his finger to her lips and saying something, something comforting perhaps? Something that will carry on into whatever afterlife there is.
