the sloppy duck

I get scared that all the little thoughts and memories and tidbits that make me smile and laugh will be forgotten, and nobody will ever know about them. So I'll put them here. And maybe others can pretend like they get it.

“So throughout life our worst weaknesses and meannesses are usually committed for the sake of the people whom we most despise.”

Great Expectations - Charles Dickens

This is probably one of the truest quotes from literature I’ve ever come across. It seems like time and time again, we waste our energies focusing on impressing people who we really don’t like all that much. Maybe we just don’t want their negative judgment…really, though, we shouldn’t give half of a shit.
