and trying to live out this girl at the core of my being
is going to break me
i wish i was ridiculously fucking hot
sometimes you just need chocolate chips in your french toast and chocolate mix in your coffee
oh god oh god i just got so sad it’s definitely time for sleep
one of my professors said today that she had a really negative experience as a student teacher in the final years of her undergraduate career. she shared that she cried everyday coming home from the school.
she said humbly, you don’t think you can get through it, but you do.
and then it was amazing the way her voice became different and strong when she said, "you know what? those moments do something to you." After the experience, she went on to earn a PhD and she credits the negative experience for pushing her to do so. she said, i didn’t want to be that person with only an undergraduate degree, with her hand motioning behind her, like her past was physically in the room. i was going to be better than that, she explained as reasoning for her decision.
i don’t know if a PhD or schooling beyond my undergraduate degree is something that’s in the cards for me, but I hope that kind of valiant spirit is something I too can claim.
