21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves

Jonathan, 55: There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
Miranda, 24: Drop pre-med.
Isaac, 48: Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
Anya, 42: Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
Parker, 55: 60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
Megan, 34: He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
Peter, 58: Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
Eleanor, 67: Talk less. Listen more.
Donald, 27: There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
Camille, 56: Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
Jackson, 57: No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
Vicki, 47: You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
Donald, 38: You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
Katelyn, 30: Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
Joshua, 55: Women love to laugh.
Annabelle, 38: Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
Colin, 50: You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
Eleanor, 26: Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
Aaron, 52: Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
Scarlett, 54: Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
Zack, 9: I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.

Huhuhu another bucketlist: Comic Con </3

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I really, really, really wish I could see Siriraj Medical Museum, Vrolik Museum and Mutter Museum. Reading about Anatomy and visualizing it in my imagination is not enough. </3

  • I was so busy, very busy in the first week of school and ugh there’s too much assignment.
  • We watched Miracle in Cell No. 7 this last Thursday for the Personality class and it kind of reminds me of the movie, “I am Sam” I still bawled like a baby. 
  • So sad that I’ve missed another book signing but really, really promised to go to Stephanie Perkins’ book signing next month. I love, love, love Anna and the French Kiss. 
  • I’ve also finished Just One Day, Just One Year and Just One Night last week and I’m both happy and sad but happy most of the time reading the book. I’ve recommended it also to my friends. 
  • My prof was calling me “Miss Shy” for the whole damn week and I have kind of distaste on it. Maybe if she calls me “Khaleesi” then I would be happy. No, just kidding.
  • I just want to read books, okay but I have this damn thesis to work on. That is, if I want to graduate next year.

i hope that there is a time in my life to do this. travel with friends, have fun, yet still be mature, and write down our adventures and stories and not feel that it is tiresome or annoying. be with people who you really love, go to amazing places you have dreamed about, and shop for exotic antiques or the newest styles. and to just be able to love life in the moment and live.
