fighting feelings of inadequacy (at Harvard and elsewhere)

it's inevitable.

you hear about all the great things someone else has done or is getting ready to do, and you start to feel like you haven't won enough awards, served on enough boards, or traveled to enough places.  when those feelings start to creep up, stop and think.  you have to remind yourself of all the things God has allowed you to do in your lifetime, all of the love that He has for you.

you are good enough, at all times.

technology is grand...

Tupac performs at Coachella 2012.  Yes, I said it, Tupac.  'Scuse the profanity in the video.

I want to know how they did this.  Seriously.  It's fantastic.  

I was talking to someone about how there should be a "Too Soon" concert featuring holograms of the performing artists that died before their time--featuring greats like Tupac, Biggie, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston, and, of course, MJ.  I'm waiting for word on when this will happen so I can get my ticket.

i should be slapped

(Now Playing: Making Love - Utada Hikaru)

HOWWWWW did I forget about Hikki for so long?  I mean, I enjoy listening to what few songs I have of hers on my iPod, but compared to freshman year I barely look like a fan anymore.  Repenting of this as we speak...

funny how things work out...

i skipped kindergarten, so in a very technical sense i'm supposed to be c/o 2013.

i often feel like i connect better with this year's junior class than with the seniors.

Never Forget

I set this picture as my lock screen background on my iPod so I'd never see Trayvon Martin as just a trending topic.

"take it easy" isn't in my vocabulary

i'm about sick of people getting on my case for the courses i've decided to take and the amount of work i'm still doing in my last semester of college.  take note: i don't do anything halfway, in academics or otherwise.  it's why i stay up late to keep working on a problem set for a class i'm taking pass/fail.  it's why i'd rather quit an extracurricular completely than be forced to only go to half of the rehearsals.  and it's probably why i dance so hard when i party on the weekends.  

in any case, it's how i got to where i am, and it's how i'm going to continue to succeed.  if you don't like it, keep your judgement to yourself, and i'll keep doing what i'm doing.
