Gladiator clownfish

A few days ago my best friend of 3 years and girlfriend of the last almost 8 months moved across the country to go to her dream school. Knowing it’ll be very difficult to stay together for the next four years, we decided it’d probably be best that we break up and move on with our lives. She wants to still be best friends as much as possible and of course so do I, she’s the most important person to me in the world. But what then? College isn’t going to help “us”. College isn’t for giving us a chance to be apart and live our lives. College ruined us. I can’t even imagine being with another girl right now because I only care about one girl. The girl who changed my life, who stuck around when no one else did, who has been there for me every second, and who has been the only person who makes me truly happy. I can’t even imagine it, being with another girl, because no one can compare to how wonderful she is in every way. She’s the only girl I could realistically see myself being with for a very very long time. And now it’s over. She’s gone. But of course she isn’t actually gone. She will always be around. But it won’t ever be nearly the same.

I just feel like we ruined the greatest thing there could be.

I miss my Madeline so much

I’m an idiot.

Can you imagine living in a bubble for two years? Well, these people did it. Back in the 90s, Jane Poynter wanted to understand the delicate balance of the Earth’s ecosystem. So she and seven others moved into a sealed biosphere for 2 years and 20 minutes. (That last twenty minutes matters when you’re stuck in a giant bubble.) The challenges they faced — from spending 4 months making a single pizza to being short on oxygen — make for a pretty incredible story.
