So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

I’m actually reading this right now and just read this part this morning. I highlighted it and thought about it several times since then, so it seems *meant to be* that I see it on my dashboard now.

This is the inside joke of creative writing programs in America. We know creative writing doesn’t make money, and yet we continue to graduate talented writers with no business acumen. At best, it is misguided. At worst, it is fraudulent.

We need to teach students more about the business aspect of the writing life. (via millionsmillions)

THIS. I originally wanted to get my degree in Art History, English AND Business so ya know, I could actually do something with the Art History and English part— but i couldn’t hack the business classes (I cried a lot during accounting) and therefore dropped my business major — and therefore am not doing anything with my degree. I wish so badly there were courses called, “You’re creative! Cool! How to use it AND survive and maybe even be successful.”

quite simply, I was in love with New York. I do not mean “love” in any colloquial way, I mean that I was in love with the city, the way you love the first person who ever touches you and you never love anyone quite that way again.

#IceBucketChallenge: Why You're Not Really Helping

I’m glad donations and awareness ARE up…however, I think this article raises some valid points about ‘slacktivisim’ and why we think we’re helping when we’re really not. In all honesty, should I get tagged, I’m just going to make a donation and post ab it instead of pouring a bucket of water over my head.
