     “High school really changed me—it taught me to live in the moment. I ran track and cross country. I was better than almost everyone, but the elites destroyed me. I started beating myself up about it, and didn’t participate in races as much. Then I remembered:  I started running seven years ago because I enjoyed it. So I stopped caring, and went back to enjoying the adrenaline of being in the race, in the moment. And if I came up short, so what? I was running because I enjoyed it.     “So I applied that philosophy to everything else: I realized that there’s more to life than stressing over the future. Everyone was like, ‘Oh, I gotta get into Stanford. I gotta get into Harvard.’ But in my mind, if you do your work and you come up short, it’s OK. There’s no point in stressing out—you did all you could. If it’s right, it will happen. It doesn’t mean that you don’t have to do anything, but if you work towards something and it’s meant to be, it will come true.”

If only every concept was explained with a Disney reference, I’d be doing even better in law school.


hair is not permanent. baths will make u sleepy and so will lotion. if u aren’t up for school don’t fucking go. u don’t need to explain urself. it’s ok to give in to societies expectations sometimes. girl sweat is a gift from whatever the fuck u believe in. just bcause u can,doesn’t mean u should. bring food with u everywhere and don’t hesitate to eat it. ur aren’t as bloated as u think u r. write things on ur hands.

I don’t broadcast every high & I don’t hide every low. I’m trying to live. I’m not trying to convince the world I have life.
