I find it funny that when other people look at me they like “you’re what parents want in a child” when realistically, i’m the disappointment of the family.

  • got a 3.7 GPA in your first year of college? should have gotten a 4.0 
  • got 6 government job offers at the age of 18? should have gotten 7
  • Is a normal body shape. Should get in much better shape like your sister.
  • Make sure relationships don’t distract you from your studies! but also make your you get into a long term heterosexual relationship!

i wonder why I’m a nervous wreck all the time.

Ohhhh my god the sweetest elderly woman picked me up from the bus while I was waiting for a taxi. Her husband drove the bus I was on and everyday she brings her 13 year old golden retriever Banana to visit him and then she takes her to the ferry dock where I was going. I love traveling alone because you meet the sweetest people you probably wouldn’t otherwise.

This should go straight to your inbox

I think you made the right choice. The hard choice. But half happy isn’t really happy. So now be wholly happy.

If it doesn’t fit, it probably never will. And that’s OK. No need to keep serving time. You don’t owe penance to anyone.

Whatever ugliness was thrust upon you, you’ve made it into pure gold. And now you’re the diamond in the crown. They’ll never understand that. But everyone else will.

You are worth something without a bunch of awards. You don’t have anything to prove to anyone, ever. There’s a real you and it deserves to be nurtured.

A fresh start is the air that will clear your lungs. Open your arms, because it’s waiting to embrace you.

You’re not failing. You’re more human than most. And that may confuse some people, but it doesn’t make you wrong. Please don’t shy away. The world needs your light. You may not be loud, but you’re bright.

It’s never hard to love you, mess and all. We’re all more than just the good times.

honestly one of my fears is that if i don’t write for a long period of time, then my writing’s going to decline in quality ; ;

absolute quantities =/= proportional quantities

“x is one of the least common types of c” does not necessarily mean that there’s a small number of [x]. it means that, okay, there are a group of things classified as [c], and among the various sub-categories, the one we call [x] accounts for a comparatively small fraction of all things [c]. 

if something only occurs among 1-5% of the population, this does not mean it occurs to “almost no one,” a small number of people. 1-5% of the population is millions of people. it is simply a small portion of the number of people in existence. 

fwiw, 1 in 20 or 1 in 100 is not vanishingly rare when it comes to human populations–in some cases, in fact, those would be considered an alarmingly high frequency. it all depends on the context. (if the incidence of tuberculosis in California was 1 in 20, it would be very alarming!)

(I see this come up in weird ways with, like, MBTI types or whatever. “Haha I constantly see people with INTP on their sidebar, how can it be one of the rarest types?” Because… most people who take the MBTI are not INTPs…?)

relatedly, a quantity need not be a majority to be disproportionately large. if 30% of what you’re doing focuses on a certain group, you could say that you’re not really focusing on them–70%, a clear majority, of what you’re doing focuses on other groups. however, if that group only accounts for 5% of what you’re studying, than focusing on them 30% of the time does look disproportionate.

note: “what I notice on Tumblr/Facebook/wherever” is not a representative sample of all populations

I just tried to explain my “type” to coleen and cassie and it was basically like, well spoken british men who look good in sweaters and tall blonde eloquent women in professional clothing who can do yoga 

and in other news, my mom just told me to please not date anyone older than her except clearly I’m gonna be single forever because I have the strangest, most specific requirements for a partner
