Am so very glad that mocks are finally over and I can get back on my own study schedule, which includes zoning out for twelve hours straight last night :P It was such cheery news I headed out in shortsleeves last night! The bad news is that I’m way behind schedule for valentines favors. And as happy as I am to photoshop my class’ graduation dinner booklet pages, I’m very much uninspired by the stacks and mountains of academic clutter in my room. D:
So I’ve been wanting this for some time since colours always make a great statement (apart from the fact that they’re too pretty to be mailed). Am going to splurge (a bit) today can’t wait!
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”—Steve Jobs
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket - safe, dark, motionless, airless - it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”—C.S. Lewis
