"Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.

If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.

You should do no less for yourself.

Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening."

Pat Cadigan, author (via ellenkushner)

Again, ‘Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.

"Education: the path from cocky ignorance to miserable uncertainty."
—Mark Twain (via observando)
"Consider what are the true ends of knowledge, and they seek it not either for the pleasure of mind, or for contention, or for superiority to others, or for fame, or power, or any of these inferior things; but for the benefits and use of life."
Francis Bacon (via awakenedvibrations)

"The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready."

Helen Mirren. (via neuers)

I had a hard time getting an even picture with the camera flash and all…I’d like to digitally retouch this when I get the chance.

Possibly a little cliché, but I’m just hoping my prof doesn’t call me out on the dust spots from the negatives….
