My mar-see-cret: I just earned a specific degree. I realized that I don't want the jobs that my degree is tailored for. The more difficult it is for me to find a job in Specific Career, the more relieved I am that I can look elsewhere. No one I've spoken to gets this - that I'm not excited for that career path - because they all assume it's temporary nervousness. It's not. I'm afraid I just wasted thousands of dollars on school.
Money spent on education is never wasted money.
And you’re going to be able to live your dream! This is exciting. Don’t let others’ blah feelings get you down.
“everyone has trauma. everyone has been traumatized either in small ways just from living in an alienating society. or in large more abrupt ways. we are all broken. we are all alienated. we are all traumatized. and sooner or later we have to figure out a way to live with all of our traumas and triggers. and this is in part why i question the politics of trigger warnings. cause if we are all traumatized then how do decide which traumas should be noted and watched out for and which shouldnt?”—maia medicine: yoko and the politics of a trigger warning (via guerrillamamamedicine) (via tart-tart)
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
