i am an optimistic person who loves pretty much anything.
im obsessed: photography, art, architecture,sidewalls, the science of sleep, 500 days of summer, and Napoleon Dynamite(awesome movies), the strokes♥, arctic monkeys, the smiths, the doors, the Beatles, best coast, the vaccines, phoenix, Billie Holiday, and doodling/sketching.
While it’s on my mind, I’d also like to mention that HIMYM made splendid use of The Shins’ “Simple Song,” a song I enjoyed but wrote off fairly quick, but will now probably be in my head forever and ever. HIMYM has always made great use of tunes, never exploiting them or rendering them obsolete…
Such an amazing journey. I could not help but tear up at the end.

The freedom and simple beauty of it is just too good to pass up. One day I’ll get back to you, Wayne, and repay some of your kindness.”
I love when moments like this get captured on film. I always wonder what became of the people in them.. I bet they wouldn’t have guessed that half a century later people would still be admiring them. And think how important that kiss must have been to the both of them, to go to all the trouble. I hope to be kissed with such fervor someday. And I hope they made it.
