who browses the shelf
and looks for new worlds
but finds herself.

I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love.

I wish there were more GIFs, and more diverse types of GIFs of Jennifer Connelly on Tumblr. If or whenever I ever learn how to make GIFs, I’d GIF the heck out of her. I’d make GIFs of her from Hulk, from Virginia, from Blood Diamond. Her beautiful face is meant to be immortalized in GIFs! It always makes me squee so hard when I see her in a new GIFs where she hasn’t been GIFed before, like that one gif set of her in The Hot Spot of her face. Or in another instance, the dual GIFs of her and Liv Tyler, both as Betty Ross in Hulk. I hope to make GIFs of just her in Hulk though one day.
