finding a balance

hi. i’ve been wandering wandering for far too long, mozying aimlessly about in a roundabout frolick. finding myself stranded and dreary, lonely and teary. ok…ok so enough with the debby downer hoohah. lets talk business. i’ve had a…um lackluster year to say the least. i spent the past eight months tangled in one mess of a relationship, found out what its like to feel burned out, and let my life get way way out of hand.

if nothing else this whole falling out has been one hell of a wakeup call. before this past year i’d been extremely ambitious, hard-working, and studious. and while it was nice to have a 3.6 GPA and good internships, i now realize i took myself far too seriously. somewhere in between militant disciplinarian and procrastinating mischief-maker. a crazy free-spirited oddball with a wondrous imagination and a whole lotta ambition.

and to you, anonymous, delusional ex-boyfriend of mine–caught ya ; ) have fun playing on j-date.

and just because its my favorite song ever:

aside from their stubborn refusal to compromise and a short-fleeting attention span, aries’ ceaseless passion, inner whirlwind of energy, and audacious charm captivate audiences, and clear the path for aries’ natural ascension into powerful leadership positions. as a fire sign(along with leo and sagittarius) aries are fueled by creative instincts and their feverish desires with such allegiance that their wild-eyed quests often forgo logic—hence, on the downside, aries are often belligerent and uncontrollable, erratic and rule-breaking.

despite the aries wishy-washy emotion and headstrong confidence, you’ll find that an aries gets what she wants, so long as the passion is sincere and powerful. their machiavellian instincts drive the aries to limitless feats, and like their sign’s emblem, the ram, suggests, an aries won’t stop till they’ve trampled their way to the very end.

narcissism+girl scout cookies

(an old boyfriend of mine once told me i reminded him of the banana in this video. i can kind of see where he’s coming from.)

  • this is lethal. girl scout cookie recipes. directions and ingredients on how to make thin mints, do si dos, and even samoas. (the kitchn)
  • NYU’s number one “most fashionable school.” (sparkle shelf)
  • if you’re a destressed college student like myself, chances are you’ve come out of an all-nighter library stint with crater-sized bags under your eyes. If so check this post out on how to get rid of the dark circles under your eyes. (running with heels)
  • new york times is doing a series called one in 8 million, in which “tells the stories of New York characters in sounds and images.” the times adds a new personality profile to its growing roster of photo-docs, which essentially capture the spirit of the everyday new yorker, as a celebration of the city’s splendid diversity.
  • twitter fiends and facebook junkies who clog are social media accounts with play-by-play updates of their lives mightsuffer from narcissistic personality disorder. slate has a fascinating article on the cult of narcissism and how the me!-me!-me! disorder has infested American culture. (slate)
  • even the brawniest drinking heavyweights get hangovers from time to find. but next time, try some of these hangover cures the morning-after a binge-drinking extravaganza. (daily dose of coffee)

  • ny times has an article on the importance of recess and play. such departures from the academic rigmarole have shown to stimulate the mind and improve one’s mental capacity. finally, an academic article to confirm my most cherished beliefs. play=good. a frowny-faced, serious-looking sour-puss is just no fun to be around. not everything needs to be so serious all the time; we could all improve the quality of our lives if we just learned to lighten up a little bit. (ny times)
  • 100 greatest books of all time (art and letter)
