things i learned in 2016:

  • sometimes i’ll try my best in school and i’ll still fall short of my goals, but i’ll still survive because life goes on
  • what’s important is learning how to overcome fear of failure and perfectionism
  • rest is important, but so is knowing how to push myself enough that i can accomplish the goals i have for myself
  • taking care of myself is important, but so is being aware of how to improve myself so i can be happy with the person i am
  • being by myself and having quality Me time is important, but so is interacting with people who uplift me and add positivity and radiance into my life
  • i don’t have to drink if i don’t want to
  • nothing excuses behaviors that hurt other people
  • i don’t have to cut off my friendships from high school just because college is a time to Explore and Meet New People™ 
  • with that being said, i also shouldn’t cling onto past relationships just because they were once a thing. there’s a time to let go for almost everything, and relationships aren’t an exception
  • support systems are important
  • social media breaks are important
  • doing things that are fulfilling in life is important
  • helping other people is important
  • i missed reading books purely for the joy of it
  • the most ‘successful’ people in the world learn to let go of envy or jealousy, and learn + gain motivation/inspiration from those who are better than them
  • negative bias is real, but just its mere existence indicates that good things do happen in this world and i will learn how to appreciate that more in 2017, god damnit.
  • i need to rely more on internal and not external validation

Remember when we were just people

I’m probably your worst friend, that one who forgets to call you or send you an appropriate amount of messages to tell you pointless observations of their perception that you never asked for. I’m not glued to my phone and will take a while to write back because I’m out in the world doing activities. I work a lot, I barely have time just to be by myself. So no, I won’t be that person sending you a cheesy good morning text. If you want me, we do this thing where we organize a date and show up and be in the moment - here and now. Put away the technology that pretends to serve a purpose of connecting with another human being.

poets born under each sign, part II: MOONS

aries: virginia woolf

I belong to quick, futile moments of intense feeling. Yes, I belong to moments. Not to people.

taurus: hans christian andersen

She laughed and danced with the thought of death in her heart.

gemini: t.s. eliot

Ah, but we die to each other daily.
What we know of other people
Is only our memory of the moments
During which we knew them. And they have changed since then.
To pretend that they and we are the same
Is a useful and convenient social convention
Which must sometimes be broken. We must also remember
That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.

cancer: henry david thoreau

And if she faintly glimmers here,
And paled is her light,
Yet always in her proper sphere
She’s mistress of the night.

leo: james joyce

As I am. As I am. All or not at all.

virgo: william wordsworth

“What occupation do you there pursue?
This is a lonesome place for one like you.”
Ere he replied, a flash of mild surprise
Broke from the sable orbs of his yet-vivid eyes.

libra: anne sexton

I was
the girl full of talk of coffins and keyholes.

scorpio: shel silverstein

This town grows old around me. 
I cannot say I did not hear
That sound so haunting hollow—
I heard, I heard, I heard it clear…
I was afraid to follow. 

sagittarius: lewis carroll

I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.

capricorn: anaïs nin

I adore the struggle you carry in yourself. I adore your terrifying sincerity.

aquarius: margaret atwood

You think I’m not a goddess?
Try me.
This is a torch song.
Touch me and you’ll burn.

pisces: percy shelley 

The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another’s being mingle—
Why not I with thine?

Hi study people

I know there are a lot of posts about there being different paths to academic accomplishment and success in general, but just to add to the pile:
I got rejected from every college I applied to on my first try. After failing a class and a generally low GPA my first semester, I spent my second semester on academic probation.

But then I spent a handful of semesters on the Dean’s list and now I have a Master’s degree so :D

I know this is an unpopular opinion but I don’t care

I love Assassin’s Creed Revelations

I love Sofia Sartor and how smart and resourceful she is
I love how bright and sunny Constantinople is
I love how dark and mysterious the puzzles are
I love Yusuf Tazim
I love an aging Ezio Auditore with gray hair and a gray beard
I love the beautiful market places and people
I love the hook and blade
I love the suspense of not knowing if Desmond is gonna make it out
I love Yusuf Tazim
I love how Ezio slowly learns more and more about Altair
I love the skyline filled with mosques and ships
I love Yusuf Tazim

Help me make a podcast?

So, I’ve been thinking about starting a podcast. It’d be fantasy and maybe sci-fi, containing magic and stuff.
I want it to be diverse, as diverse as possible.

- People of color

- All kind of MOGAI/LGBT representation

- Disabled people

- Neurodiverse people

I probably forgot a few things that I’ll add if I remember or somebody messages me. 

Now, if you want to help me write the podcast, or you just want to add ideas or your voice, message me, and please spread the word! 

Also, there is not even a title yet, it’s in the tiniest of baby shoes, but that’s why I want people to help me - I want a really diverse cast and it’s best people who already know a lot help with the design, so.. I really hope this happens? Thanks for reading!

i really want an Azula recovery story

i would settle for it being a side plot

i just need to see her making an effort to be good

like i realize that she really is not a good person, but she is smart

Ozai completely destroyed her, but i think that at least a small part of her knows that her mother and Zuko love her and actually want to help her

i need her to return to the palace, apologize in a really awkward, backhanded, sort of way and then try to integrate herself into the life there

her making really bad jokes in an attempt to be friendly

the gaang being unsure of how to react to said jokes

her learning that not everyone is conspiring against her

zuko awkwardly helping her and trying to act like a good big brother so they can have the sort of relationship that Katara and Sokka have

her learning to trust people

I just need Azula to be okay
