Drifting on the echoes of the hours.

I'm Alexandra. I'm 27, queer, chronically ill, mentally interesting, and I live in the Canadian Prairies.

Here you will find beautiful pictures, beautiful words, surreal humour, adorable animals (especially birds and bats), nature, hippy shit, neat art, queer things, feminist things, Buddhist things, things related to knitting, Greek and Roman Classical stuff, period film/tv appreciation, things that appease my inner goth teenager, and posts on living with chronic illness and mental illness that don't involve the word "spoons". And maybe the occasional Teen Wolf gif set because nobody's perfect.

“Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.”

– Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking (via fawun)

“I don’t wish to fetishize psychological or emotional instability; I’m aware of the enormous toll it can exact. And I know that there are many people who live under unbearable burdens of uncertainty. But we are mistaken when we interpret anxiety and other forms of existential disorientation as being at odds with a well-lived life. It may well be that they are an essential part of such a life.”
