Sweet Summer Boredom 

whativelearnedincollege:

Not much to say now that it is Summer.

Well, that’s not very true. I have just been too lazy to post anything. There has not been any stress-inducing events either scholarly or emotionally related so it has all been really boring. And I would not have it any other way.

I cannot remember…

Best headline.

finally and accurate headline!

It’s easy to succumb to emotions of anger and disgust during times like these, but remember he was still a human being. I am not defending his actions, only reminding us that headlines like these do not in any way shape or form help the situation. They don’t make us better people, they don’t comfort the victim’s family and friends, they just show how savage we still are and can be.

The Courage of College 

whativelearnedincollege:

Whether you are brave, or shy, or somewhere in between, college fosters an environment that lets you grow some courage anywhere/everywhere. While I’m not saying college is the ONLY place for such an opportunity, it is a place that has an abundance of standing in the face of opposition and taking a…

Telling yourself

whativelearnedincollege:

You tell yourself that you are over her (or him or whoever) and you tell yourself they are just a friend - no more. 

But then you see them with another guy, and you know that all you have been doing is telling yourself lies.

Disordered: Aren't we all 

whativelearnedincollege:

So much judgement gets passed around nowadays on who is different and who is not. Recently, my whole world view on disorders - at least some disorders- have changed. How many of us can honestly say we have not thought “I sure hope I never get wheelchair bound” or “I sure hope my child isn’t…

Damn these tendencies nature has provided me with. 

whativelearnedincollege:

I’d rather write than have these thoughts eat me alive. At least when I write I am only thinking about one thing at once, as opposed to numerous “What ifs” rushing around. What are the ramifications of tonight’s encounter? What dynamics will change? How will I react when I see how she talks to…

Our little talks 

whativelearnedincollege:

The first one was when I was studying. I was in my lounge, working at my table as usual. This cage is also my world. It has trapped me as well as nurtured me. However, on this particular night, it also became a haven - there was no other place I would rather be.

Only after I have come to terms…

No need to be hostile. 

whativelearnedincollege:

So I think I’m finally over her (or him, or them). That person I’ve been obsessing over for the past quarter. It feels quite quiet in my head now. It’s nice.

However, I am finding that I am also quiet around her now. I don’t say hi as often, I don’t make an effort to talk to her. Does this make…

Stoicism: To Praise or to Pity 

whativelearnedincollege:

We all have a friend or family member who never talks about their feelings. Hell, it may even be you. They never cry at movies. They never tell you how they feel. They only show indifference and ignorance when it comes to those emotionally-draining topics.

No, I am not talking about sociopaths…

Paradise found.  

whativelearnedincollege:

There was a small patch of land out in the emptiness of sea. It is visible at the break of dawn, when the tide is low. The spot was covered with sand that was soft to the feet and there was abundant sea life living around its shores.

Sometimes, a ship would pass by and hit some of the rocks -…

Brick by Brick…

The barrier is back up. Brick by brick, I have rebuilt a wall that can weather me from the next outburst of emotion.

How pitiful.  

whativelearnedincollege:

How pitiful. I sit in this lounge pretending to do work when I am actually just hoping she will come visit. With every footstep I hear, every door that thunders as it is opened and closed, every shadowy figure - whether real or a figment of my imagination - that comes in my peripheral vision, I…
