a-thousand-wordsHi, I'm Hannah.

I'm 25, English, and I love words.

Welcome to my tumblr.

an introduction

This blog is about words.
Expect to find beautiful quotes, introspective song lyrics, clever typography, picture quotes, and even the occasional cartoon that has made me nod in agreement, laugh or just think for a little while. A few carefully arranged words can say what 1,000 can't, and can connect people.

I started collect those quotes here so they wouldn't spam my original tumblr , or get lost in my likes, never to be seen again. Hopefully this way others will find and enjoy them too.

This is not a spoiler free blog. You'll find I am a fan of many things, and that filters through here.

(Please note most posts are queued. The twitter updates it's self.)

"The best moments in reading are when you come across something — a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things — that you'd thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it's as if a hand has come out and taken yours." - Hector, The History Boys.

How To: Keep A Journal
some quick tips
1. Make it Desirable
If you’re like most of the population (aka not Tavi Gevinson), and keeping a journal isn’t the easiest thing for you, pick out a journal you will want to write in. Pick one with birds on it, pick one with stripes, pick out the hipster-est leather bound journal ever (or bound it yourself whoa), whatever your heart desires, just make sure its something you want to write in.
2. Make it Functional
You’ll want to carry this thing around with you wherever you go (see next tip!), so make sure its a small enough size that you can chuck it in your bag in the mornings, but not so small that writing in those last couple lines at the bottom of the page feels like heading into battle. (trust me this makes a huge difference)
3. Bring it Everywhere
Yes, I mean everywhere. You never know when the opportune moment strikes. When you have that epiphany while staring at street art, write it down. No - you won’t remember it. Thank me later.
4. Make it Fun!
This is so important. Alot of times keeping a journal can become a chore, and that’s not what it is supposed to be about. Do little things to make writing a more enjoyable experience. Write in colored pens, don’t erase, let your thoughts come as they are. Doodle in the margins, or print out pictures of your favorite celebrities and glue them on the pages. If you can’t think of anything to write, write down the lyrics of your favorite songs.
5. Understand It May Not Look Like One You Saw On Tumblr
I see so many pictures of adorable journals on tumblr, and more often than not your journal won’t look like that, unless you have boatloads of extra time. I’m not saying you can’t make it cute, you totally can, but if you’re anything like me, it will most likely be just pages of scribbled thoughts, and its important to know that thats okay.
6. Write As Often As Possible
I’ve actually found the more often I write, or doodle in my journal, the more creative I feel. Its like getting rid of all the tangled thoughts in my head to make way for the fun stuff! I understand, you lead a busy life, but try to write a little something each day, even if its just writing down what you had for breakfast, or 3 good things that happened to you that day.
7. Do What You Want
Its your journal. Write what you want when you want. Its your own space to do with whatever you want. Its your little garden of thoughts. Its for you, so let your ideas flow onto the page, and start writing!

sometimes I kiss people I shouldn’t kiss and let them unbutton my jeans sometimes I leave English class without asking and walk in angular circles until I can hear the blood rushing under my skin sometimes I run until I can’t breathe sometimes I sit in the rain sometimes I sleep for six hours in the middle of the day

sometimes I drive too fast and listen to my music so loud that it hurts sometimes I drink until everything goes black and I don’t remember talking about you all night (even though I do)

sometimes I cry about books and about people who died hundreds of years ago sometimes I don’t cry even though I want to more than anything sometimes I ignore the people I love sometimes I hold myself to keep everything in because you are not here to do it

sometimes I think I’m alive sometimes I think I probably never will be

“Do you do submissions?”
-Anonymous

Ooops, it appears I had accidentally closed my submission page, it can be found here.

I do try to only post what I would choose if I saw it on my dashboard, so please don’t be hurt if I don’t post what you submit. I do promise I’ll look and read!
