I’m off to become a woman of the wilderness, I’ll be back Saturday with photos videos and stories galore. ciao!

VIDEO CAPABILITIES OMG
my friend has just blown my mind by showing me that I can use manual focus on my Canon T3 as I take a video oh my GOD. the gates to the land of possibilities have just opened and I am running through them at fullspeed.
I don't want to question the meaning of life.
yumaah: I just want to live it.
also, speaking of home,
someone comes home tomorrow! And by “home”, I mean back to my bed. Haaaaah, just kidding.
stranger in the streets
The other day, while it was pouring rain in Palo Alto, I left my phone in Holly’s car so I went back to get it and everyone else continued on ahead. As I walked to the salon alone, I looked at the shops and restaurants around me and realized how very little I know about the streets of this town. I live here yet I’m still a stranger to the intimacies of what makes this place here....

R: Dude, Lindsey, did you know that when you ask for butter on your popcorn they literally pour butter on it?
Me: Um, yeah.
H: Also, you should have seen him when we got to the popcorn counter. He's like, 'I think I'm going to get caramel popcorn,' and I'm like, 'Um, they don't have that.'
R: This is disgusting.
Me: Welcome to America!

Me: ......why would you say that why stop it

i broke up with physics then cut my hair
guys I’m in a car on my way to the mall and we’re listening to the radio and the beginning chords for “set fire to the rain” came on and I don’t even think I can explain the wave of excitement that overcame my body as I prepared myself to belt out my soul
heliotrophic asked: Your blog is DELIGHTFUL. Not in a kitsch, cute way but in a way with which i am utterly obsessed.Well now I've got that of my chest i'm going to emit an awkward thank you and sweep away back to reality. adieu!
che-rish asked: Just so you know, you just keep on inspiring me. Keep being the awesome you, okay? Hope your exams go well! Fight on!
i say no to bullshit
On Monday, during my oral exam, I told my IHum TF that reading Dante’s Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso this quarter helped encourage me to persevere through this rough quarter. That’s the kind of statement that I would have automatically thought was BULLSHITTTT in high school if someone told me they said that. But it honestly wasn’t; I had meant it. In college, everything...

“And therefore stand up; conquer your panting with the spirit that conquers in every battle, if it does not let the heavy body crush it down. A longer ladder must we climb; it is not enough to have left those others behind. If you understand me, now act so that it may help you.” I stood up then, pretending to be better furnished with breath than I felt, and said: “Go, for I am...
‘Is your mind so distracted,’ asked the master, ‘that you have slowed your pace? Why do you care that they are whispering? ‘Just follow me and let the people talk. Be more like a sturdy tower that does not tremble in the fiercest wind. ‘For any man who lets one thought— and then another—take him over will soon lose track of his first goal.’ ...

poetryeater: Say to them, say to the down-keepers, the sun-slappers, the self-soilers, the harmony-hushers, “Even if you are not ready for day it cannot always be night.” You will be right. For that is the hard home-run. Live not for battles won. Live not for the-end-of-the-song. Live in the along.
yup that's me
E: Physics 41 just isn't very interesting.
J: Yeah it was just boring.
R: Well the Physics 60 series is very hard but very interesting at the same time.
Me: Um. Physics 41 for me was just... Traumatizing.
J: You know what's traumatizing? Humanities classes.
Me: I love humanities!
R: I don't, its all just reading and writing, ugh.
Me: Guys, you three and I--I'm just, well, we are just on completely different academic levels. We're in COMPLETELY different worlds.
J: You're just a fuzzy!
R: Yeah, a big ball of fuzz. Well I guess technically you'd be a little ball of fuzz.
J: A feisty little ball of fuzz.
