When a tree grows, it makes a lot of tough choices.
"Do I grow close to this tree, or in the middle of the field? The tree will keep me company, but could potentially stunt my growth. The field would give me plenty of sun, but nutrients might be scarce. Do I stay with one trunk, or do I split down the middle? If I decide to split, when do I do it? Sooner, or later? Will I have enough strength to support both sides equally now, or do I gamble that there will be enough later. And what if one side doesn’t get enough sun on it’s side and tries to grow into my space? My sun will be blocked by my own second half. But it could also help me get more sun so I can grow even bigger. Can my roots even support my branches if I split? What if the soil is too soft for me too get too big? What if I grow too big on one side and break down the middle? Half of me will be gone, rotting at my base. But if that does happen, will it really be gone, or will I just soak it up in my roots as it decomposes? On the other hand, what if I decide to stay single trunked and grow tall? Sure it’s sunny now, but there are other saplings around, and buildings could be built around me and could block my sun. Those dark patches will stall my growth. I’ll have to grow left to get more sun. Agh, the shade again, gotta grow to the right again. 50 years later I’ll be all curly. I won’t look like the other trees that are growing straight and tall with two or three main branches, instead I could have dozens of smaller branches sprouting up my trunk."
Trees live hard lives. Every choice they make is shown on the outside for everyone to see. But we don’t care what they look like. We think they are all beautiful just the way they are, regardless of the choices they make. And so the trees grow, not caring what we think of them. We could learn a thing or two from the trees. Except trees aren’t conscious of these decisions, nor can they change what happens to them. They are just trees, and they don’t worry about anything. They grow where their seeds land, and move to toward the sun, and let the chemical signals within and between their cells make their decisions for them. Maybe we could still learn something from the trees.

Almost all of music theory can be explained by one simple circle, the Circle of Fifths shows the relationship between math and music, between ratios and harmony

Love isn’t about
   fucking each other
at any opportunity.

It also isn’t about
  how many months
or years
  that you’ve been together.

To me,
  love is about 
being able to see light
  inside of the person
who knows nothing
   but darkness.

One year ago
I remember feeling so sad, alone, and confused.
Today
I feel angry, distant, and regretful.
If I could go back one year from today,
There would be so many things I would change.
I would study for that test,
I would apply for that internship,
I would go out of my way to meet some people sooner,
I would make an effort to avoid meeting some people.
Thinking back
one year ago from today I would have never have guessed at all the shit I’ve done,
But if I were to go back one year from today,
I would probably end up in the same place.

I just walked into headquarters, realized I wasn’t wearing a bra, and then had to go back to my cabin to get a bra. I wish my nipples weren’t so god damn perky all the time so I could get away with shit like this.
