I’m in a never ending battle with my desire and tendency to procrastinate as much as possible. And I’m okay with that. 

Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
- Don Miguel Ruiz (via psych-facts)
Stop worrying about your identity and concern yourself with the people you care about, ideas that matter to you, beliefs you can stand by, tickets you can run on. Intelligent humans make those choices with their brain and hearts and they make them alone. The world does not deliver meaning to you. You have to make it meaningful…and decide what you want and need and must do. It’s a tough, unimaginably lonely and complicated way to be in the world. But that’s the deal: you have to live; you can’t live by slogans, dead ideas, clichés, or national flags. Finding an identity is easy. It’s the easy way out.

yummmm and simple: quinoa, butter, sea salt, nutritional yeast, and garlic powder. Tastes like cheesy pasta but it’s not :)

The Ultimate Margarita with Hornitos tequila at El Tapatio in Rowley is the tastiest margarita ever. Highly recommend it.

Went to a Korean Buddhist temple today. In my diversity class one of my assignments is to attend a religious service I am unfamiliar with and reflect on it. It was a very interesting experience! None of it was in English. However they served a delicious vegetarian lunch after and I spoke with some very nice ladies who knew English. One of them explained to me what all the bowing and mantras were about and a Buddhist monk gave me some books. Looking forward to learning more!

I know I’m a student with too much to do when my chocolate consumption dramatically increases.
