"Galladon drowned when I was four and he was eight, though, and Alysanne and Arianne died still in the cradle. I am the only child the gods let him keep. The freakish one, not fit to be a son or daughter." (A Feast for Crows, Brienne VI)
I’m so sick of people thinking they can just waltz into my room when I’m obviously listening to music in 4/4.
I just wanted to reblog this again because I find it inordinately funny.
I can never do it, unless I look away. [x]
Aww you’re just like me! I’m from Illinois (not Chicago, though) and came to New York for college (NYU).
Big city living advice. Hmm. Okay. You can say no to people, but say yes to experiences. I feel like people in general have a hard time saying no to their friends, but never really say yes when something different comes their way. Whatever life throws at you, say yes to it unless it’s really outside of your comfort zone. Like, if someone offers you zebra meat, how often are you going to get that opportunity? Try it! (Unless you’re a vegetarian, you know? Then I understand not trying it.)
Beyond that: Watch your wallet, both literally and figuratively. I’ve been pick-pocketed, my friends have been pick-pocketed. I’ve also spent more than I meant to just by not budgeting well and by living in a very expensive city. Keep a record of your expenses, even though it’s mundane as hell.
When you’re living in a big city, it can feel a lot like you’re missing out on a lot of experiences if you stay in. And yeah, you are, but you’re also missing out on a lot of experiences even if you go out. If you need a night alone with a whole pizza to yourself and every movie Ryan Gosling has ever been in, spend that night alone with your pizza and your movie star. The city is loud and your friends might be loud as well, and even the biggest extrovert needs time alone in a city that neglects to give it to you unless you take it.
Go to a park that isn’t Central Park. Go to a park that isn’t even in Manhattan. Do it at least once a month. You won’t realize how much you missed nature and quiet until you’re in it.
I hope that helps. If you do end up going to college in the city, hit me up! I’d love to meet up. :)
Maybe Eric perceives Four as a potential threat to his position. My father says that those who want power and get it live in terror of losing it. That’s why we have to give power to those who do not want it.
