Just read a quote from a casting person for Bachelor Canada saying that they made an effort to represent every province. Oh good, so what you really meant was Alberta, Ontario, BC and Quebec. 4/10. Great job.

“Take it all back. Life is boring, except for flowers, sunshine, your perfect legs. A glass of cold water when you are really thirsty. The way bodies fit together. Fresh and young and sweet. Coffee in the morning. These are just moments. I struggle with the in-betweens. I just want to never stop loving like there is nothing else to do, because what else is there to do?” —Pablo Neruda (via yourclassyslut)
