“She’s gonna learn that life will hit you hard in the face, wait for you to get back up so it can kick you in the stomach. But getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.”—Sarah Kay- “Point B”
And name droppers. And people that just pretend. It just gets annoying after a while. I’ll absolutely admit: I’ve been guilty of it before. I really want to apologize now. As for the rest of the world, I think we all need to work on being a little more humble. I’m at the point of my life and future career where I’ve done a lot of really cool things and a lot of my friends have too. I don’t find it very impressive anymore when you went backstage because you know somebody or got asked to audition for something. That’s really awesome. And I’m sure you feel cool. I certainly did when stuff like that started happening to me. But tell me when you land a real job. I’ll congratulate you, buy you a few drinks, and you can shout to the world all you want. The people around you and I want to know who you are not who you know.

When (not if) you find yourself experiencing respiratory problems while considering foggy and yet inevitably soul-crushing nature of your future, take a moment to collect yourself and then adopt a British sensibility. Make yourself six consecutive cups of tea and then adjourn to your local pub for a follow up dose of ale and fried food. The former will calm you the fuck down and the latter will drive you to an early grave. Voila! You no longer have to worry about what you’re doing with your life.
I can deal with Tumblr being down. Those are social things. I don’t need to socialize online. But so help me God, you take away my email for a day and I will cut your throat. What the hell Gmail?! I need to register for classes and need to email professors/advisors/offices.
Do any homebodies want to do the New England one instead? I’m willing to drive any person who wants to go. We can run the race in the morning and hang out in Boston on the way home… Let me know! http://thecolorrun.com/newengland/
