2. If you could go back to any time period, what would it be? Since I’m a hopeless romantic it would be the regency era.

3. Plans for the day? Since today’s nearly over, my plans for tomorrow are: Go to work, go to the pub in the evening and don’t fall apart. 

4. Marmite or no? NO! N-O!

If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.
Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept (via observando)
Perhaps this is what the stories meant when they called somebody heartsick. Your heart and your stomach and your whole insides felt empty and hollow and aching.
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez (via observando)

oracaleangellia:

When you have a broken heart nothing feels right. The pain can swallow you whole and you’ll feel like you can never love again. But somehow, someday you’ll love again. And maybe this time you won’t be hurt like you were before. 
I know the pain. I’ve been there and I’m still recovering. But I’ve found someone who makes me smile. Who knows I’ve been hurt before and gives me time. Now it’s time to move on and find the one who won’t ever hurt you anymore.

I just want it to stop….
