I’m done trying to fit in / And be half forgiven / For things that I never did / We’re more than what scares us / We’re final and fearless / We’ll dance where the ice gets thin – Matt Nathanson, "Giants"

I’ve had this wallpaper for about three years now simply because I think it’s adorable. Will this be the year I change it? Who knows. It’s going to be difficult to find a replacement for it.
