❝ and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love ❞

checking on you was
the day I finally ended

I can survive after you. ❞

Also…I have Jolvie.com which I think is a pretty awesome name for a general site for myself but I’m not sure what to do with it. That’s the problem with having something be so…general. I could have it be my personal blog. I could use it to practice writing in French. I could write about a variety of random topics over there. Or, I could have it be a destination for 20-somethings like I was originally planning on doing but I don’t really know what I would DO with that topic, even though it seems like a cool plan. 

Hm…jolvie jolvie jolvie. WHAT SHOULD YOU BE. I need an outlet away from Page to Premiere that isn’t book to movie so I don’t go insane but the vastness of “everything not book to movie” is a bit much. I need to downsize.

It’s named after the conglomeration of ‘Jolie’ and ‘La Vie’ which basically is ‘pretty/beautiful’ and ‘life.’ So the possibilities are basically endless. I need ideas, if you have them!
