Goodness. There is so much judging going on from other kids because I’m the one of the only people in the honors college that’s not doing engineering or biology. Like sorry I want to pursue a degree I’m passionate about and don’t care about the money. I could do engineering or biology if I wanted to, but I don’t. GOSH.
“Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, ‘Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.’ So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look.”—Marina Abramović (via prismma)
Describe your current crush/ the type of boys you like pls.
Current crush: I’m not sure this guy is my crush or just someone I’ve really enjoyed getting to talk to lately. But anyway, I’m not even sure how to describe him… hmmm super super tall, really sweet, Jesus-loving, pretty eyes.
Type of boys I usually like: Honestly, I like personalities more than looks, so if I enjoy a guy’s personality his looks are automatically more attractive no matter what “type” of guy he is.
Where do you fall politically? republican/democrat/ind
I would say I am an independent I guess (or a moderate). I agree with some things republicans say and some things democrats say. I don’t like the way either of the parties acts though. I guess I agree with republican views on the economy and limited government, but also with democratic views on social issues. (i think that falls under libertarian). but also remember I am 18 years old and haven’t fully formed my opinion on things yet, I’m still learning and I don’t have all the answers :-)
“Lolita is not about love, because love is always mutual; Lolita is about obsession, which is never, ever love, and Nabokov himself was so disappointed that people did not understand this and take away the right message… For how could anyone call this feeding frenzy of selfishness, devouring, and destruction “love”?”—In her preface to LOLITA, Mary Gaitskill reflects on a review by Vanity Fair’s Gregor von Rezzori in which he calls the novel: “The only convincing love story of the century” (via exam)
I have a problem with taking my book with me everywhere even if there is no way I’ll get reading done. 3 am trip to the grocery store? Bring the book along! 2 minute trip to pick up pizza? Bring the book along! I think I just feel better having it with me.
