    I would LOVE to look up at the stars

    but there are no signs of stars in the night sky where I live lol so I guess I'll stick to looking up at pictures/gifs of stars on tumblr by holding my phone above me. A few days ago, my sister and I saw 6 lone stars while out at night, one in particular was DAZZLING so BRIGHT...

    Last night was rough.

    Poverty bit me. Rules got me fearful. Egos got me fearful. And mad. And sad enough to be mad. Was charging phone. On truck battery. Preparing for interrogation. Sad. Mad. Goofy. Got very hurt. Looked up. My sky has no city lights. City...

    It's 20 below out there with a biting wind.

    Had to go out in this ridiculousness for the dance banquet to celebrate the end of the season. Her last. I was not looking forward to it for a multitude of reasons. As far as anyone looking in could see, though, I was delighted and that's all that matters. lol After enduring the...

    it is what I do every night.

    .. I really love spending my time lying down on a grassy field or on the sandy sea side while looking up to these wonders... I normally spend hours doing this... it is the perfect time when I could freely think without the disturbance of anything...

    I love sitting outside looking at the stars

    and the only noises to be heard are the sounds of crickets... There's just something peaceful and calming about it

    looking up at the stars is the only moment I

    can think of myself, who I am, without thinking of any other concerns around me. This really makes me face who really I am. sometimes it is so hard to accept who i am now, but accepting my flaws gives me a chance to be who i wanna be.

    Every time I get a bad headache

    and can't stand being inside, I go out at night and lay on the back of my moms car. And I just look up at the stars and think.

    It's like watching the world

    that doesn't exist now, it's like looking in the past, it's fascinating. I always imagine that when i look at the one and specific star someone else on this big world look at the same star and thinks the same and that this is such a "connection" between us...

    I love to look up at the stars

    If I didn't live in suburban Atlanta,

    that would be more of a possibility. The worst feeling is looking into the sky and seeing the prettiest little blue star, only to then see it start moving, and you realize it's just another helicopter. :P

    Some years ago I was living on a sailboat in

    the northern tropics, and the night stars were brilliant. At sea they spanned the sky 360 degrees from horizon to horizon. It was just a jumble of incoherent dots to me until I found just two pages in Reed’s Nautical Almanac that described in words how to find the navigational...

    I love the night sky,

    more so when is a very clear night, you can see the stars twinkling, shinning like little jewels. It takes me back to when I was a child, my grandmother said to me that's all the angels in heaven watching over us. Sadly my Grandmother is no longer with us and from time to...

    I really miss living in the country.

    My longue chair and big open yard. Looking up and watching for shooting stars. I love the twinkle in the sky and a lil music in the background. I can see the sky where I am now but it's not the same. The peacefulness is gone but the beauty still remains.

    No stars tonight but I love to hear the wind

    blow the trees leaves and watch the lightning light up the sky. As I lay on my couch with my back hurting it makes me feel a little better. I hear the rumble of thunder in the distance. It is warm outside and dark the clouds as far as I can see are a little eerie and there is a...

    Darkness, inside your head.

    Light outside. No one understands. Going over every word he said. Every action he made. I think I'm going insane. Don't know what's right or wrong, what's real or fake. Running, running away. Run away from the truth, run away from him. Run to safety. But nowhere is safe. Not...

    where I could sit, drink hot cocoa and gaze at the stars. I used my own telescope once, saw jupiter and saturn.

    Quite simply order in chaos.

    The heavens are a reassurance that there are constants in life. When you need it, just find a dark place and look up!

    I love looking up at the stars.

    It's really beautiful. It makes me feel relax and opens my mind to all the possibilities in the world. When I grow up and get my own place, I'll make sure to have a huge window to look out at the stars or have a backyard to lay in the grass and lay there for as long as I want to...

    Before my brother died,

    whenever either of us had a bad dream or just felt bad, we would sneak away around midnight and meet in the field by our house and look up at the stars and try and count until we felt better.

    In his very late years,

    my father began to study the stars. It was one of the less things we did together without looking at the past. Just have fun as father and daughter. I do it now with my son and really enjoy it.

    I don't mean celebrities either.

    (no shade) But I mean REALLY looking up at the stars. Gazing into the vast expanse of space and time dotted with shimmers and glimmers and all things divine! You won't find a view like this amid the hustle and bustle of the big city. From what I've seen of one big city, that...

    Drove home at sundown.

    Unbuckled. Looked outside. Said why go in trailer. Stale nachos. Spilled rootbeer. And stars waking to wink. Wait for real cold. And let stars heal my worries.
