J’ai eu une série de mauvais jours cette semaine à ce jour. Parfois, je me demande si c’est le karma et je le mérite. J’aime à penser que je suis beaucoup plus fort que je me donne crédit pour, mais parfois je me sens incroyablement faible et sans espoir.
“When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’ It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?”—Sandi Toksvig (via tarrinj, learninglog) (via palahniukandchocolate) (via chasingvans) (via cygnette)
“Good friends are hard to find and even harder to keep. They might be gone already, but the memories always remain, and they are like a fire inside of me I can warm myself at on exceptionally cold nights. That’s friendship.”—Haruki Murakami (via murakamistuff)
Looking back, I realize that I gave up a lot of opportunities…a lot of opportunities. Whether it be with guys (some really great guys that I didn’t pursue because I was too shy or insecure) or decisions that could have changed my life. I believe that everything happens for a reason, but I’m at that point where I’m just so frustrated. When am I going to find the one? When will my future career path finally be crystal clear? So many questions - I just need the answers now.
Study parties, good food from Panera Bread, and Princeton adventures on Sundays with my friends :D
Late night C-Store runs
Finally seeing Ryan Gosling’s abs in action in Crazy, Stupid Love
Being insanely productive this past weekend
Finally riding my little folding bike on campus.
Receiving Ferrero Rochers (MY FAVORITE CHOCOLATE) from a really sweet girl who asked to borrow my Art History Midterm essays (I did decently well on them and the exam overall) as a ‘thank you’. That really made my day :D
My Biology capstone professor just told me I was a great writer (in terms of scientific writing) and that made me really happy. Mind you, I love writing, but I wrote my scientific review/capstone paper the day before it was due, hardly slept, skipped my 8:30AM class, and finished writing what I thought was the most terrible thing I had ever written up until class started.
Correlation/connection or not, but I feel that writing in my tumblr definitely improved (arguably, of course) my writing skills in general.
At my internship, there is a girl only a year older than me, who works as one of the design consultants. She is definitely different from most girls - she is energetic, incredibly kind, confident, spunky, smart, charming, can hold her own against all different kinds of people, has great taste in music, is more attractive than most models even though she is my height (5’6), and she stands out in this crazy city of NYC (believe me, when walking through the streets with her, you wouldn’t believe how many guys turn their heads lol).
Why do some girls just have it all?
LOL, today is just one of those low self-esteem type of days.
