I’m honestly tired of my parents thinking that they can rule over my life I understand I live under their roof, but seriously. Trying to control who the hell I follow on Instagram? You might as well tell me what shirts I can and can’t buy. Oh wait, they already do that. Oh well. It doesn’t matter anyways because I don’t like buying clothes for myself.

Every star is a sun as big, as bright, as our own. Just imagine, how far away from us you’d have to move the sun to make it appear as small and faint as a star. The light from the stars travels very fast. Faster than anything. But not infinitely fast. It takes time for their light to reach us. For the nearest ones, it takes years. For others, centuries.
