It’s Monday again, Welcome!

In the words of Alanis Morissette, “Isn’t it ironic? Don’t you think” that we spend our youth wanting to be older, and our adulthood desperately holding on to any traces of youth.

Anyway, my point is I discovered this website from a younger much cooler individual. (I’d like to think not that much younger– though when we were in elementary school I constantly reminded her how much older I was)

Also, the dollar sign in the name was inspired by Drake– I don’t really know why, it just was.

What would Lincoln do?

20120813-160039.jpg

I don’t care what anyone says Lincoln was a babe; one of my favorite presidents.

My favorite thing about Lincoln is that he always kept his cool. When betrayed or antagonized he wouldn’t reprimand or hand out verbal lashings. Instead, he wrote “strongly worded” letters, to those who had wronged him. However, he never sent them.

He realized that these letters would only be met with resentment. The recipient would not feel sorry, instead he/she (but lets be real, he) would justify his own actions and condemn those of the president.

In my youthful haste to persuade people, I have severed one + relationships with unkind words. Next time, I feel like I’ve been “ass – fucked in the heart,” I’ll ask myself, what would Lincoln do….

So write a letter. Blow off steam, because resentment makes you look fat. But for the love of whomever DON’T SEND IT!

Next time you’re overcome by rage just ask yourself what would Lincoln do. Carry a five dollar bill folded like the one in the picture in your wallet. 

LA woman

For the past two years I have been living in the paradise known as Sevilla, Espana! For the past month my friends and I have been speaking of the culture shock we would experience upon our return to the USA. I was so sure that I would be immune to it and that I would adapt perfectly to my life in Los Angeles.

Alas, I was wrong! I returned to the states on Thursday afternoon and already I long for the warmth of Sevilla, its narrow streets, its friendly people, its roman ruins, and most of all the great people I have met there. I want to go back so badly. Yet here I am in Los Angeles jobless and friendless ( most people have moved away or started real lives). I realize that soon I will settle and start a real life but I really don’t want to. I want to return to my life in Spain where I could just ride my green, second-hand bici anywhere in the city. But the realities of school loans and working towards a career have pulled me back to the good ole’ US of A.

Will Ferrell looks much older! Gah, why is life changing so quickly!!!!

Enjoy your marshmallows

It’s hard to believe it but I only have two months and a half left in Seville, Spain. I’m only just now starting to feel settled with my life here. I realize that I should take it all in and enjoy the moment but it’s just so difficult to not think of the future. Since childhood, this “think ahead” ideology has been engraved in my mind.

A popular  psychology study involves placing a marshmallow in front of a child, telling him or her that he/she can eat the marshmallow immediately or wait 15 minutes and then have two marshmallows. It’s a huge struggle for the child http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EjJsPylEOY . However these children were interviewed years later and the children who waited to eat the marshmallow at a young age were more successful, healthier individuals in their adulthood. Were these individuals happy with all of their success or were they always thinking of the future. Was the present marred by the future for them?

Don’t get me wrong the future is super important but once we’ve learned to wait for the second marshmallow is it possible to enjoy the time in between?
