Every month I get in the top 25. But this was the first time I have made it into the top 10.
So proud of myself.
Saturday evening, I’m watching Elf and writing follow up e-mails for work. Rocking it.
- My intelligence. I have a great understanding of how I learn and what I am good at. I’m great at writing, editing and even math.
- My ability to stay in touch with my friends. Despite the fact that I don’t have a Facebook, it’s totally possible to keep in contact.
- My ability to work with people, keep them smiling, and get them to tell me their worst insecurities and happiest moments. They really understand that they can trust me.
- On that note, I am great at my job. And I found something I’m extremely passionate about.
- I can 100% own up to all of the stupid things I love. They’re not “guilty pleasures”, because I have nothing to feel guilty about. Maybe I like TV shows or books that others do not, but that’s what makes people different.
i want a word for the almost-home.
that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing
that first glimpse of the skyline
that you never loved until you left it behind.
what do you call the exit sign you see even in your dreams?
is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,
i need a word for rounding your corner onto your street,
for seeing your city on the horizon,
for flying homewards down your highway.
give me a word for the boundary
between the world you went to see
and the small one you call your own.
i want a word for the moment you know
you’re almost home.
— there and back again, n.m.h.
The best shit I’ll read all week (via emlestrange)
The best ever response to the ‘not all men!’ crusade. If it’s not about you, stop making it about you.
Is such a happy day for so many people. It’s like a weight has been lifted off of the shoulders of some of my members.
Happy April 16th. With Tax Season officially being over, time to party.
— Can’t Buy Me Love: How Advertising Changes the Way We Think and Feel by Jean Kilbourne (via marinashutup)
I am reading this book right now and Jean Kilbourne is once again changing the way I see the world around me. Every page has quotes like this one, and I encourage everyone to read her books, listen to her speak, and watch her documentaries.
