My dad always said, “life’s not fair”
It seems that the things we want are so simple. So basic. But something always fucks up our chances of holding it.
I think I need something. But I’m either too afraid to admit what it is that I need or I’m too stubborn to ask for help. OR I’m too anxious to determine if it’s true that I actually need something or if I’m just all around crazy.
Q:I'm a high school student and I *really* want to work at NPR once I'm done with college. What should I be doing now to prepare myself?
Enjoy college. Enjoy life. Do things outside your comfort zone. Everyone here took a different path. People change. What you want now might not be what you want in five years. Explore all of your options. Leave your mind open. Write and read and experience as many things as you can. This is true for any path in life, not just working here. (I’ll stop the zen for a sec: we have an internship program.) But seriously: just do as much as you can and meet as many different types of people as you can. College is short. Too short. Worry about us later.
Bills pizza tonight!!!!!
A strong man can handle a strong woman. A weak man will say she has an attitude.
Thanksgiving was an epic success (minus work)!! Gluten free stuffing, pies, cobbler, cornbread, the whole lot! Amazing Andy made me a gluten free sweet potato pie bc sweet potatoes are pretty much my favorite food….we got to skype with my family and it was so great to see everyone’s faces, I would’ve given anything to be there!! Chelsea’s brother and mom were here from Texas and I was so grateful to have both Andy and Chelsea there to dive into some turkey with! Andy’s turkey was SO IMPRESSIVE!!!!!!! Never cooked one before in his life and it was SO JUICY! And I had white meat! I’m feeling grateful even 2 days later :))
