this actually isn’t as much about c/o 2014 as it is about other people (including those not even in school, haha); it’s just a reminder to live in every moment and live with love. i want every wonderful laughing moment to resonate the loudest. i want those moments to be remembered with the most solidity, for those to be timeless, not the usual goodbye’s.

spent my afternoon reading. pulling myself back into art. falling in love with frank ocean all over again. drawing the people i miss. looking at pretty pictures of watercolor paintings. 10:38 pm. if i spend every night alone, there’s no better way to spend it other than this.

I’M DRAWING! I HAVEN’T DRAWN IN SO LONG.

meet my best friend from middle school, pawny, and her oo la la guyfriend. :) today was the senior bbq! i took a picture of them when they didn’t know it and the picture is actually really pretty because they were both matching in red (red for our class color because today was the moving up assembly, yay) and they’re both such pretty people. she was going through the yearbook, and her boyfriend was laughing at some (probably nasty) joke a graduating senior told him.

THINGS TO REMEMBER, part 2
1. this summer, you should love yourself. love. love the way your lips move when you speak. love your sense of style. love how other people smile when you start smiling, too. love yourself for loving books. for hating misogyny. for being a kick-ass human being.
2. love others. love everything. love the hip-hop that is so deeply embedded in some people’s lives and cultures since it makes them happy and who they are, even if you don’t like it yourself. love your mother. love your pet. love other people’s pets. love your classmates (brush away the cute and quirky mindset of hating school). love the books you’ve never read. the black coffee you hate. the indie music tumblr hasn’t found yet. everything / all of this / each one of these things is somebody’s happiness.love life for having such smiles, such road trips to remote places, and the little kids who smile over ice cream at country side gas stations. 
3. tumblr has already told you countless times that you are the sea. boundless is what you are with the most intense emotions, but just remember to wash gratitude into your waves. thank your school janitor. thank your neighbor for not being obnoxious (hopefully). thank the UPS worker if they don’t throw your package (but if they do, yell it to them). thank your dog. make a card for your librarian. tell the people who have always helped you, and anyone who helps at all, how grateful you are that they even exist; every small push helps.
4. don’t hold grudges. first, spend your time with people who make you the happiest. realize how much life means to you when your cheeks ache after laughing so hard. then, realize how little time you have. there is not enough time to hate, to be bitter, to be silent. let them know that all you want to do now is love. all you want is to love them and be loved, and to have the world be filled with more rooms of held hands, jokes over beer, good music, and nothing less.
5. remember to be the best person you can be.
love,monique

Calling All Crafters!!!

blackunicornmagik:

If you SCAPBOOK, SMASH BOOK, ART JOURNAL, keep a SKETCHBOOK, or do any kind of crafty thing like or reblog this! I wanna make a little community for all you DIYers ^_^

(via writingnotebooks)

woooow, this blog is inactive. so here’s a weirdass-idk-what-i-was-doing sketch from a couple months ago. i drew things on my dash and tried rubbing cliche off my feet. also, my head was stuck in utter nostalgia over my favorite place in the world, hence the “miles away” and apples and forest fires and hills. to anybody other than me, this all appears stupid and just an off-the-head doodle in the back of my trig notebook, and overdoodled things of nature. but i realized it’s all so personal. car-rides, rolled down windows, foot on the dashboard, threes and apples and plain hills. even the writing was all super personal up unto the “where your name used to be”, haha. i was originally just going to write about the place, y’know?
180 miles away, there is a forest fire. i can feel the heat in my bones, the flames in my throat, the sticky apples and sap burning sweetness in my mouth where your name used to be.

the words and the doodles (for the most part) are really irrelevant, but that doesn’t matter much to me. i haven’t touched watercolors in so long, and i’m just really happy about this because what can go wrong with j. cole & colors!?
