Apollo 1 crew practicing a water landing in 1966.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
— Invictus by William Ernest Henry

christmas is so much worse as you get older it’s like “what do you want this year?” “a sense of purpose”
"a career" "financial security" "a sex life" "tuition for grad school" "alcohol" "a nap" "socks would be nice"
Leave nothing but footprints
Take nothing but pictures
Kill nothing but time #enchantedrock #statepark #fredericksburg #texas #hiking

things people have yelled in a bath and body works store:
- “wtf is a eucalyptus”
- “this smells like my grandma”
- “wtf does “wood” smell like”
- “this is bs i’m going home”
#i imagine all of these being said by the same person #getting more and more disgruntled as they pass through the store
