Anonymous asked: Did you already graduate high school? When? Do you go to college or something similar?

All school systems vary from country to country, and here in Germany we do not have the exact same thing as ‘high school’, it varies. But what I can say, is that I finish school next summer (2015), which should equal a college degree, if not more, as far as my knowledge goes.
Then it is planned that I go to a university to study philosophy and literature.

The flesh that trembles and fears, the flesh that loves and rests, will one day rot and decompose. Therefore, be not so cruel: while it is still possible, let it be adored by those who desire it, unimpeded by your sympathy. Oh, be not so cruel, and let others love who they need.

And we all have dogs
but have no one to talk to,
no one to wake us.

8 days are left before Jessica and I meet.

I yet have to fully grasp the happening of this.

Anonymous asked: If someone hurts you emotionally, In your opinion is it better to be sad or mad at them?

I believe being sad to be better. Being mad alters nothing, but it only interrupts your inner repose, while sadness can be just as destructive, but is less furious and aggressive, as I would claim.

If you are an artist, exhausted by the effort your devotion can steal, remind yourself that the struggle is a part of the art.
