I go to the hills when my heart is lonely.
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?
Scars don’t really fade.
You just learn to live with them.
I don’t think that who we are as a person should be defined by our grades. Some of us have exceptional talents that cannot possibly be represented by a single letter or number on a graduation certificate.
But that’s just how our world works, and there isn’t much we can do about it.
So I think that instead of trying to change something that is so ingrained in our culture and our society, we should view it positively.
Because grades may not reflect our personality or our talents, but we can use it as a measure of our determination and our resilience.
Grades can be the fire by which we temper ourselves. It is not by any means pleasant, in fact it burns, but we emerge stronger and better.
We have to learn not to be weighed down by the marks we loose, and instead focus on what we did right, how we accomplished that. Take each exam as a learning experience and continuously add to the the list of things you’ve done well in.
"Today, I cleared all my distractions, sat down at a table and focused. I learned discipline."
"This time I finished the full paper, I wasn’t short of time. I learned to prioritise and time manage."
Sooner or later the list will add up. Discipline. Practice. Understanding. Internalising. so on and so forth, and good grades will naturally follow.
You’ll find that grades are less about sitting in the lecture hall and rushing out an essay, and more to do with the weeks of preparation, the hard work and effort you’ve put in.
Eventually you’ll realise that exams aren’t about content or memorisation. 20 years down the road, you won’t remember a single essay you memorised. But you’ll still make use of the skills you learnt, the values you acquired.
I’ve finally found a camera bag that looks absolutely fantastic.
I adore the rustic leather look of the satchel. It’s easily one of the most beautiful camera bags I have ever seen.
But it weighs 2.8 pounds.
That’s just slightly lighter than 1.3 kilograms.
and then, its also $349
where do people even get that kind of money?
Cramming frantically for biology block test = sounding like a mad woman mumbling and talking to myself.
"Chihaya-chan, are you trying to use both of their strengths?"

Honestly, I’m juggling the fine line between hoping for the best and expecting the worst.
But well, whatever will be will be.
It’s too late to do anything anyway.
( on a side note, wentinger, my amazing friend, I hope you’ll do brilliantly and bring you one step closer to your goal)
Maybe it would be a good idea to write a book titled ‘What you didn’t know’.
