If you try something or go to learn something or study something and you decide that that thing is just not for you, I am proud of you.
You did something. And you learned from it. And you aren’t gonna just stick with it because you’ve dedicated a certain amount of time to it even if you aren’t happy with it. You are fucking awesome.
Keep going out and trying new things till you find what makes you happy. I’m proud of all the big and little learning steps you take, even if they seem to be in the wrong direction. You rock.

So my older brother was in a book store and picked up a book about the difficulties faced by same sex parents in society today when a woman came up and bitched him out for being “too young to be reading a book about THAT sort of people.” He saw that she was carrying the third Hunger Games Book so he stared her dead in the eyes and hissed “Prim dies.” and walked away and I have never been prouder to have him as my sibling.
There is this guy on the bus who calls himself Jeff. Jeff narrates the entire bus ride in third person. Today was the only day I have been on the bus with Jeff where someone has told him to shut up. Jeff sighed and then said “Jeff dramatically looks out of the window while sighing. Jeff just couldn’t understand why people had to be so rude.” The person who told him to shut up now looks like he is going to cry out of frustration.
The only thing that would make these secret room bookcases cooler is if you activate them by pulling out a special, secret book :)
If you repeatedly criticize someone for liking something you don’t, they won’t stop liking it. They’ll stop liking you.
