Troubling Quotations/ The Right Words in the Right Order Can Really Mess You Up

I am displeased

What's that saying? The smarter you get, the more you realize how much you don't know.

What a depressing, begrudging thought.

There's another one that states , There's always someone else in the world who's better than you.

No matter how good we are, we will always sell the world short on ourselves.
They will ask for more after we've given absolutely everything to them. Exhausted and thoroughly spent we'll decide for ourselves if we're satisfied.

I haven't spent myself in so long. I haven't been pleased with my exhaustion in years. Joshua Lee has been known to half-ass his way through life. Even things he should be concerned about to the most intimate degree have been lost in waves and reinforcements of disgusting complacency.

I swear I'll get there one day. One day I won't quit climbing a mountain, working out, getting fit, writing a story, making a relationship work, pleasing my father, pleasing my mother, helping my little sister, being a hyung to my little cousin, being proud and happy with myself.

I will finally climb to the mountaintop and then find those surrounding peaks taller than me. But I will get there and I will smile in my inequity.

This quote off of someone's tumblr keeps coming back to me.

"It's never too late to be who you might have been."

-George Elliot

Whoever said that black and blue clash should get the hell up outta here ;)

This picture is the pinnacle of my material aspirations.
Makes sense that it would be lost and confused on the floor, trying to see if there's a way to regain something lost.

Kanye you are truly inspiration. Jesus walks brotha

Denim Movement, Denim Flow

Levi's Meatpacking 414 West 14th Street

Denim has long been the staple of American workwear and in the thousands of washes out there nothing quite captures the spirit of manifest destiny/frontier west like a damn fine piece of denim.

Denim is cowboy propaganda.

This has been my love song to woo the masculinity in denim.
