Best shit ever
This is actually really good stuff.
"You two have managed to accomplish something together no one ever has; you surprised me.”
I’ve been fucking waiting for this photo set right here, and let me tell you why. Monsters University quickly became my favorite movie due to a single fact, that these two? They failed. They actually went to school and they failed, they didn’t get brought back in, they didn’t make a miraculous come back at the end, they fucking failed College.
But that didn’t stop them. Through hard work, perseverance, and taking opportunities that came a long instead of just settling for where they were at, they were able so still make it to where they wanted to be.
That is super powerful, it gives you hope, knowing that college isn’t the only way. Because you know what? It isn’t, you don’t have to go to college to get to where you want to be or to be happy. You just got to take chances, take opportunities, swallow that fear and do things to help change your life for the better. If you believe college is it? Fantastic! Go for it!
However, remember: Life is never over if you fail something. You just got to look for opportunities to bring yourself back up.
Older inspirational Disney. This is what I miss.
who you are in high school is not who you will be in college and who you are in college is not who you will be when you are 30.
when you accept that you are malleable and ever-changing, you will be less resistant to new ways of thinking and being and you will grow into the beautiful person you are meant to become.
resist the urge to remain stagnant. there are always things to learn about the world and yourself. let yourself learn them.
This is the truest shit ever.
SYLVIA PLATH ‘The fig tree’
This allegory KILLED me when I first read it a few years ago. Beautiful and horrifyingly accurate.
"As the years go on, you see changes in yourself, but you’ve got to face that - everyone goes through it… Either you have to face up to it and tell yourself you’re not going to be eighteen all your life, or be prepared for a terrible shock when you see the wrinkles and white hair. Getting older doesn’t frighten me, but I wish I didn’t have to because I like life a lot." Audrey Hepburn
So, on a school trip to Italy we parked next to another tour bus filled with kids about our age or younger. While waiting to get going to our next stop, we ended up having a staredown with the ginger kid and his floppy haired friend. After a few moments of intense staring, someone lifted their hand to the window to display their Game Boy.
With that, someone from our bus pulled out their Game Boy and waved it next to the window as well. Within moments, the entire other bus had children clamouring to the side. all with arms outstretched and game cartridges and consoles pressed eagerly against the glass, each one smiling and waving as our bus erupted with laughter.
The bus eventually pulled away and we never saw them again, but I will always remember this as one of the funniest moments on our trip.
