my favorite part of concerts is when the band plays a song everyone knows so everyone’s singing along all out of tune but then the singer stops singing and they point the mic at the crowd and u just hear everyone in the crowd singing the words to the music and u see the smiles on the band members’ faces bc they know people care about their music and everyone’s just so happy who cares about anything else
"I just don’t know how to look at the world anymore. I don’t see streets and traffic lights and cars. I see demons and angels. Everything’s different."
"The world’s the same. You’re the one who’s different.”

I have lot of goals, and one of them is to know when to stop. I love the sound of applause but I don’t want to become addicted to it in order to feel whole. Hopefully in your life you make graceful decisions, dignified career choices. There are lots of different directions to go in, and I’m not anywhere close to being out of ideas here, but as I grow older, I hope I can continue to rely on gut feelings and continue to be self-aware. Self-awareness is usually the first thing to go when people lose touch. So ideally I can keep my wits about me.
awkward how reassuring i find this
well ya duh society shames speech patterns associated with young women
"Speech fillers" are just a human’s way of saying "wait a sec I’m thinking". It means we think more before we speak, always trying to find the right way to say it. Every language has them. And people shouldn’t be annoyed by it, ever.
they’re also called filler words. It’s basically “Im thinking, but I’m afraid to be silent- heres a random meaningless word to provide sound”
The best thing my acting coach ever told me was “Don’t be afraid of your own silence. Let it stand.” If you’re thinking, think. If the silence makes someone else uncomfortable, that’s their problem. You sound a million times more confident, and can focus more easily on what you’re thinking about, if you ditch “like” and “um” and just let silence be silent.
im sorry but like, i like my filler words.
How long will I love you?
