i don’t get it when people tell me i should stop doing things because “boys don’t like it”
like god forbid my personal choices prevent me from dating shallow close-minded assholes who care how long my hair is but don’t give a fuck about me as a person
Was thinking about this today and also that sometimes my behavior is not ladylike. What does that even mean?
Stop trying to ‘get it together’. The biggest lie we’re told when we’re growing up is that soon as we’re adults, as soon as we’re in college, finish college, get that job, have that steady income, find that someone special, ‘find ourselves’, find that perfect house, get that retirement fund, have those children, everything will fall into place. Here’s a secret: it won’t. Every new development in your life, good or bad, big or small, will come with its own very special set of challenges. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be.

I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.
