    I really want to see this, but I live in middle-of-nowhere Oklahoma. So I probably won’t get to.

    Whaaaaaat I need this.

    "For language to have meaning there must be intervals of silence somewhere, to divide word from word and utterance from utterance. He who retires into silence does not necessarily hate language. Perhaps it is love and respect for language which imposes silence upon him."

    25 July 2014

    As I’m traveling through Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive to be exact, it dawned on me how happy I am that my parents raised me to be happy with who I am, and not what I have. I don’t doubt that I’ll shop in Chanel or Dior one day; however, when I do so it will be because I want that for myself rather than wanting it to show it off to others. It will be a product of my hard work instead of a supplement of mom and dad’s money. Mom and Dad’s money got me through four years at Biola University. That’s worth more than an aged Chanel bag in more ways than one.

    I don’t know why, but seeing teens roaming through Rodeo Drive and Brighton Ave made me that much more appreciative of the fact that I live in South Central Los Angeles.

    I’ve got nothing to prove to anyone, and I prefer it stay that way.

    "I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you."
    Zoe Saldaña
