Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.
—J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (via itsfromabook)
i want to be in a band i want to drive across the country and live in a van full of gross smelly boys and guitars and amps and boxes of merch and bathe in the sinks at rest stops and set up our own stage to sing for a bunch of drunk people in hole in the wall bars and then pack up and load back into the van and try to sleep for a little while before its my turn to drive i want it so bad
people asking me what kind of music i like is such a stressful experience
