That’s been really hard to wrap my head around. Especially during the times when I’m weighed down by my own mess and misery. It’s really astonishing to hear people describe me; they say all of the things about me that I conveniently overlook. All of the things that I forget about because I’m so busy trying to be perfect. All of the things that, despite my shortcomings, are still worthy of admiration and make me worthy of being looked up to. Continue reading
3D printing seems like technology of the future but it’s here NOW. It’s already been used to print artificial limbs and organs and now…makeup. Yes, makeup.
I stumbled across this article on Facebook about Mink, a 3D printer that allows you to create your own makeup with a click — well, a couple clicks — of your mouse. Mink was created by Grace Choi, a Harvard Business School student, who wanted to give young women the ability to create the makeup products they see on Youtube, Instagram, Pinterest, and all around the web instantly and conveniently. Check out the video after the jump to see Grace’s presentation at TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2014.
I’m realizing that 26 is the age where I should stop trying to change who I am and just accept it and make it work out for my betterment.
Being apologetic and/or trying to act in ways that are in conflict with who I really am only made things worse for me. And I can’t move forward like that. The hardest part about this transition is to retrain myself to be me automatically. To bring myself in every situation that I find myself in. Before, I’d wait until I was out of options before I’d resort to being my authentic self.
I’ve wasted too much time, too many tears, and even more opportunities by not being bold enough to be myself.
This is the day that changes.
I could be writing this post as a gal who is completely finished with the Spring 2014 Academic Semester but noooooo, I decided to turn in some papers late on May 1st. But for the sake of relatability, as I know that school is ending for many folks all over, I’ve decided to reflect on this very trying and tiring semester. So here are some lessons Spring 2014 taught me: Continue reading
Having so many doors being slammed in my face one after the other hurts. I don’t like not being good at things or not being good enough for things. I’ve always been good at school. I’ve always been a leader. I’ve always stood out from the crowd, worked hard, and got everything that I wanted and deserved but right now I’m not doing any of these things, at least not where graduate school is concerned. And I feel terrible!
I have a love/hate relationship with quitting. I don’t like failing, giving up, and not following through. I also don’t like feeling stuck, complacent, or like I’m settling. With all of the things going wrong and right in my life I’ve decided it’s time to quit a couple of things. Continue reading
Hey, there. Pardon my absence.
At first I was going to write a whole paragraph of excuses but that’s not what this post is going to be about. This post is going to be about going up. Continue reading
