This is my blog about my loves: Staedtler pens, notebooks, TV, more TV, grammar, music, Starbucks, laughing, fashion, running, GIFs, travel, and all things British. Someday I hope to be an editor out to save the world one typo at a time, but right now I'm just another college student procrastinating on the internet. I prefer dogs over cats, Coke over Pepsi, the window seat over the aisle, coffee over tea, and tulips over roses. Oh, and of course Tumblr over Facebook. Follow me, I always follow back ♡

sometimes I just don’t know when to quit…- Exploding Dog
Virginia Woolf’s last letter to her husband, Leonard.
I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel we can’t go through another of those terrible times. And I shan’t recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can’t concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don’t think two people could have been happier till this terrible disease came. I can’t fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can’t even write this properly. I can’t read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that - everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can’t go on spoiling your life any longer.
I don’t think two people could have been happier than we have been.
Tomorrow will be a very good day
