The past is beautiful because one never realizes an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don’t have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.

I DONT KNOW HOW TO INTEGRATE HELP

lol i just spent an hour and a half doing one diffeq problem

Never have I seen so many young, privileged, people trying so hard to be happy. There are countless articles written about it, blogs named for it, workshops attending to it. Who ever said we’re supposed to be happy all the time, anyway? We’re not. And the pressure to do so might be what’s making us unhappy to begin with. It’s OK if you’re not completely content with your life twenty-four hours a day. Can you imagine what a boring person you’d be if you were? Going through sh*t storms, feeling uninspired, hating the way you look and having guilt over not accomplishing enough are just some of the things that make you interesting, relatable and human. Not to mention, if you’re reading this, then you have internet access and if you have internet access, it stands to reason that you have a computer, which makes me think you probably have a place to live, with electricity and plenty of food to eat and clean clothes to wear, which are all things that an enormous amount of people living on the planet today do not have. This is not to say that people shouldn’t strive to better their positions in life, however it seems like so many of us are no longer content with a regular amount of happy, yet dead-set on being maniacally jubilant, all of the time.

  • I’ve been so busy lately, having to wake up around 8 am everyday for either a class or Chronicle meetings. Tomorrow I have to get up at 7:30 and head over to smith warehouse for a meeting with some guy from the global education department, and then i have to go to smith AGAIN at 2 pm for a meeting with a woman from the special events department. 
  • But god, I love my job. It’s so tiring, but I get this immense sense of purpose from getting to meet all of these people from different departments at Duke - plus I made my first sale today! It’s so nice just being able to drop in at the chronicle office for two hours a day, say hi to a couple of people, work for a bit, and then peace out.
  • I only fell asleep in my first lecture on Monday - compsci, but I’ve stayed completely awake in every lecture since then. turning over a new leaf, yo.
  • I actually haven’t had very much time lately to just settle down and think about where I am, how I’m doing, and how I feel about things. It’s weird for me, not consistently thinking about things, but I guess I just haven’t had very much time alone. Willingly, maybe?
  • If there’s one thing I hate more than anything else, it’s being lied to. There are those lies where people think you’ll never find out, but it is so fucking detrimental when and if you do.
  • Scrolling through yikyak is my new guilty pleasure. The shit is so degrading in the most horrendous sense possible, but it’s so funny at the same time. (to be honest though, I really hope all of the duke yaks are made by the same twenty people or something along those lines). 
  • Heat wave is tomorrow.

Why Casual Dating Is Ruining Us All ⇢

Such a good article

“It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view.

When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn’t matter whether its been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades.

The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before.

Its never too late to take a moment to look.”
