Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.

The simple fact is that people who achieve excellence in their fields didn’t just have a dream. They got up at 4:00 am to practice on parallel bars or had to forgo other desirable activities and paths in order to get in six hours of violin practice a day, or stayed off several million absurd writing advice blogs with their overheated little cliques that dispense useless regurgitated maxims and empty praise and decide to actually confront their own thoughts on a page. Or they read Beowulf and Dante carefully and deeply when they didn’t see any point, since all they were interested in was Sylvia Plath, because someone of more experience and wisdom told them to do so. I don’t know whether we’re overly lazy, stupid, or childish these days. But the idea of preparing oneself for excellence has somehow disappeared. So – my advice to dreamers: Don’t just follow your dreams. Earn them. Do what it takes to achieve it. Work for it. Don’t just sit there and dream because if you do, it will never, ever be yours.

love it.

It’s like cake, but scary and everywhere

THE TREES BOW DOWN BEFORE THEIR MASTER, THE SNOW CAKE, AS HE RISES AFTER CENTURIES OF IMPRISONMENT INSIDE A LAWN TABLE 

There will come a time when the trees shall fall and the cake shall rise.

Even the tallest trees will fall and the cake will rise!

and everyone on drugs around here, as per usual.

Study like Spencer Hastings:

  • Research: Read books, read journals, search online articles and publications, etc, perform field studies, question everything.
  • Study with friends: Quiz your friends, tutor courses you’re good at, work in groups and help each other with assignments.
  • Stay organized: File your papers, color-code, organized chaos always.
  • Friendly competition: Motivate yourself, join competitions, try not to fight with your sister, remember to encourage and respect your peers.
  • Get involved: Sports, debate, language, school productions, writing etc. Participate in anything that showcases your skills and talent.
  • Ask for help: Talk to your teachers/profs, get to know your school services, and you can always make an appointment with a local psychologist (before things spiral out of hand..)
  • Don’t speedJust don’t do it
  • Stay interested and explore your options: Attend campus tours or events, volunteer, stay connected to peers from different areas, network, apply to more than one option (be it schools, scholarships etc.)  
  • Caffeinate, but remember to hydrate. Coffee, coffee, redbull, coffee, tea, coffee, sometimes water. 
  • Sleepwhat is sleep?
