Applied for a top 2% (millionaires/billionaires) matchmaking website, and they called me back this morning, telling me they loved my profile and wanting to meet in their Beverly Hills office tomorrow. If they had just replied one day before, I could’ve made it, but nah, I’m off to Santa Barbara/San Fran today. Goodbye L.A., and I’ll be back for ya someday.

"When a good thing goes bad it’s not the end of the world
It’s just the end of a world, that you had with one girl”
Drake is the only one who understands.
After recent events, I was thinking about this gifset, and isn’t this the realness.
I almost forgot that the first rule of L.A. is don’t make the mistake of even mildly giving a shit about anyone…..
OBERYN MEME; nine quotes [1/9]
DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED SNOWPIERCER. IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED SNOWPIERCER, PLEASE DO YOURSELF A GREAT FAVOR AND WATCH SNOWPIERCER.
I found Curtis’s subtle change in his narration of the “men with knives” story quite significant. As you recall, when Curtis starts telling Namgoong the story about his almost eating baby Edgar, he initially says that there were “men with knives” who killed Edgar’s mother and stole her baby to eat. Then, he later admits that “I was the man with the knife.”
I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but I found the change from the plural “men” to the singular “man” quite significant. It’s like, for 18 years when Curtis was recalling the story, even to himself, he had told himself that it was a group of “men with knives” who committed the horrific act, and that he was just one of the members of the group, thus absolving himself of some of the responsibility for participating in the event.
But after he tells Namgoong and finally breaks, after all these years Curtis finally accepts the truth of what had happened—that he was the man with the knife. There had not been a group of men who had killed Edgar’s mother and had almost killed and eaten Edgar—it had only been him. He, himself, was the sole participant in the atrocity, and he himself was solely responsible for his guilt all these years.
Anyhow, I don’t know if it was intentional (I hadn’t really paid attention to it the first time around, being that I was too busy being stunned by his big reveal), but if it is, it adds another interesting part to Curtis’s character.
I hope GRRM doesn’t throw a swerve at us in retaliation, and do away with the theory.

Driving back to L.A. from Santa Monica today, seeing the lights in the distance, and thinking that this might really be where I belong.
