Sorry it's been a while since I've posted anything. Life has been extra crazy with school and i've been in a weird antisocial phase lately. No worries though, I think i'm finally coming out of it. I recently reconnected with an old friend and it's filled me with this new kind of hope. Something I haven't had in a really long time. The kind of feeling that makes you feel strong and brave. It suddenly hit me the other day and I came to a realization about that feeling. What a wonderful thing hope really is. How it can fuel your passion and give you motivation in a time when you lack it the most. So in honor of that feeling and my new/old friend I dedicate today's quotes to hope...because sometimes we all just need a little hope from a friend to help you get by.

And never stops at all.”
