"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." (Dr. Seuss)
"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you." (Frida Kahlo)

And also, I'm pretty sure I have the food cravings parallel to that of a pregnant woman's.
Group essay. Saturday night. Due by 7am tomorrow. Mahhh hair is a mess. I am a mess.
I wished grad schools would post up warnings for perspective students on their school sites. Like: “So you’ve decided to forego your looks, sanity, and social life? Welcome to higher education: where we care more about your grades and money than said education. Also, we don’t guarantee you a safe and long-lasting career. But you should’ve known that! Or are you really that stupid? Guess you are. Hahahaha you dumb bitches. Here’s your Masters. Have fun paying back 60k in loans!”
On another note, my lips do not look that plump in real life.
We all have different abilities, thought processes, experiences, and genes
So why is a class full of individuals,
tested by the same means?
This spoken word is not slamming education. It’s slamming the fact that our world values grades more than learning. So no comments of “ugh, this video is taking education for granted” or “so many kids out there don’t have an education, and he’s complaining about grades”. No, no, no. Not the message of this video at all. There is a huge difference between education and school.
“…if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Dan H. Pink was Al Gore’s speechwriter. So good! I love TED Talks. I love them even more when I have to watch them for class. If you have 18 minutes to spare, you should watch this :-) (via Dan Pink: The puzzle of motivation)
I grew up being obsessed with dance shows and performances. I believe it was this doll right here that sparked my interests. She’s a limited edition collectable and she was given to me for my eighth birthday. It was a gift from my French aunt. A Victorian ballerina…this is as girly as it gets.
