“The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”—Joseph Gordon-Levitt (x)
“I don’t trust anyone who hasn’t been self-destructive in some way. And who hasn’t gone through some sort of self-loathing? You’ve got to bang yourself around a bit to know yourself.”—(via iwasborntired)
the best thoughts and ideas always come alive in the night time. it’s when the whole world is sleeping but you’re wide awake with these crazy thoughts and notions that don’t seem so crazy at 4 am. i come alive in the night time when i don’t have so much clutter shrouding me. bright lights, background noise, people talking, tv blaring, music playing, errand running, stomach growling all these things are gone. it’s quiet. i can finally think.
