My name is Lucy. I just want to be happy. I like to read, cook, eat and laugh. I love the beach, early morning coffee, and sunrises. I feel like I was born in the wrong era. I love all music, but especially classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd), as well as Dave Matthews Band and Phil Collins. My favorite band in the world is Third Eye Blind. My favorite movie is Big Fish, but I also love movies directed by David Fincher. My favorite books are The Fault in Our Stars, Johnathan Livingston Seagull, The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and 1984. My favorite actors are Robert Downey Jr. and Robin Williams. My favorite foods are chocolate, pancakes, and spaghetti. My favorite color is yellow, because it reminds me of sunshine. I love purple too. I hate uncooked tomatoes. I am currently living in Florida, and I can't deny I love the climate, but I hope to one day live somewhere else. I long to travel, and I adore meeting new people. I am a sophomore at the University of Florida.
"'O look, look in the mirror,
O look in your distress:
Life remains a blessing
Although you cannot bless.
'O stand, stand at the window
As the tears scald and start;
You shall love your crooked neighbour
With your crooked heart."
“Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss...but every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare.”
“I always think of each night as a song. Or each moment as a song. But now I'm seeing we don't live in a single song. We move from song to song, from lyric to lyric, from chord to chord. There is no ending here. It's an infinite playlist.”
“People are screwed up in this world. I'd rather be with someone screwed up and open about it than somebody perfect and ready to explode.”
“I would die for you. But I won't live for you.”
“Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.”
“Most people, it seems like they've only got one part of the equation down. Caring for themselves, or caring for someone else. And I've learned how important it is to have both.”
"I wanna taste the salt of your skin, the soft dive of oblivion."
"You have to know what you stand for, not just what you stand against.”

It was so interesting to see Van Gogh’s progression as an artist. I loved learning more about his life and his beautiful paintings. The “father of modern art” certainly does not disappoint. #vincent #vangogh #dutch #painter #modern #neoimpressionism #art #beauty #Amsterdam #adventure #knowledge #xxx #Netherlands (at Van Gogh Museum)
