actually wearing a lot of thick make up isn't harmeful to you. it's not properly removing it at the end of the day where the problem resides...
I beg to differ. I don’t believe that wearing thick, pore-clogging makeup for 10 or 12 hours straight a day is good for your skin.
tbh that new logo looks like something a community/online college would advertise on tv with
oh, poor you. you're on your way to being fluent in french, that must be a damned inconvenience when it interferes with your music listening habits.
I find it absolutely disgusting that people are so small and petty that they need to anonymously attack others for passing comments that make no difference. If I was saying I hated blacks or something then yes - bring on the anonymous hate. But the only thing that such a ridiculously moronic attack does is make you seem like an idiot.
Do you drink? And what is your opinion on underage drinking/smoking/sex (under 18, I mean)
Yes, I do drink. Seeing as I drank underage (or, rather, I still am) I obviously don’t have a problem with it - but I’m really careful every time I drink and I have never yet made a poor decision under the influence, which would be a moment that would make me question my drinking habits. If we’re talking about cigarettes, I don’t support smoking because I think it’s unhealthy and gross; if we’re talking pot, that’s up to you. I don’t do it because I don’t like it, but it’s really not the worse thing for you! (And come on, I live in Berkeley - it’s everywhere.) Sex is a really personal decision and I was under 18, so I’d be a hypocrite if I said not to do that underage. You just have to make sure it’s the right time and situation for you (every time, not just the first)!
What is being a sorority girl like? :)
It’s been really amazing! My house isn’t the “typical” sorority house (most at Berkeley aren’t anyway) which really suits me. There’s a lot of amazing, inspiring women that I’ve already met and I’m having the time of my life with them. There’s just a very clear sense of belonging in my house that makes me so pleased to be a Tri Delt!
Why did you say 'me in summer 2015' on your Paris picture?
I’m traveling the continent (!!!) with my best friend after we graduate since her mom will be renting out a Parisian apartment for her for the summer when she gets into med school. So of course I’m invited!
details please! i'm sorry to be an anon but I don't have a tumblr
Haha oh, I just reconnected with someone recently that I had only briefly met a while back and we hit it off shockingly well! It even surprised me :3
Did you have a summer romance (regarding your how appropriate to the notebook pics)
Say that you had the chance to go back to before your freshman year of high school, and choose between going to a regular school or being homeschooled: what would you choose?
All problems aside, I would probably go to a normal high school. I only was home schooled (technically tutored since my parents didn’t teach me, but I only saw them 3ish days a week) because of health issues and would have stayed at a regular school if it wasn’t for that. You do have to be supremely independent, driven, and self-sufficient to be happy with home schooling, I think; it can be lonelier than the normal schooler’s life and you have to rely on yourself to figure out problems and to be intuitive and resourceful.
I had friends from prior schooling so I luckily wasn’t a shut-in, but I probably would have been if it wasn’t for that. It isn’t for everyone, but I do know people who have enjoyed and succeeded with home schooling!
My best friend and now-roommate Sarah who is the Southern equivalent of my California ways!
everything! heheh, I’m pretty confident. but things I especially like are my hair, fair skin, and long nails. all of which I nurture, a lot :3
Envy, Wrath, and Greed
(Not the anon who you were talking to, but I wanted to add my opinion, too - before you say I'm 'hiding', I don't have a tumblr account!) While I see what you're saying - that people make their own success - they really don't do it without some help. I mean, yeah, you got into your college by being really smart, and that's great, but would you have gotten there without the financial support and emotional support you got from your parents?
No, and I do acknowledge that, but I don’t think that someone’s great success (read: I’m not talking about myself at all) should be attributed to such silly things like Obama was saying. I really don’t mind the concept of saying “some people helped you out along the road” (even though Obama said NOBODY gets any success alone, when my grandfather and plenty others are solid examples of the opposite) as much as the way he stated it when he said, “You didn’t get there on your own!” I understand that people get help - there’s nothing wrong with that! But success should be properly attributed and not pawned off to government help, which is really the point of that little speech if you read it in its entirety. He mentions government constantly, and I don’t think personal successes are owed to the government at all. Finally, at the end, he briefly mentions how he still believes in this idea of togetherness as a nation; I really don’t think his way of saying that with the YOU DIDN’T GET THERE ALONE statement was extremely intuitive or convincing.
except what obama was saying was that successful people get to the places they are with the help of others. they didn't get there solely on their own. yes you studied hard to get into berkeley, but you also had the support of your family/friends.
He still was detracting from the successes of hard American workers. The way he said it was even offensive - you can state that people get help from others without offending the ones who end up being successful from that assistance.
And pardon me, but I don’t think the support of my family (blessed as it was and is) earned the grades and the testing scores, wrote the essays, and worked the hours of volunteering that got me into my school! Sure, we all (hopefully) have support, but the credit and attribution for the success should rightfully go to the person(s) who works for it.
What are your views on feminism? Just like, are you really feminine and is there anything you 'disapprove' of females doing specifically? (e.g., cursing, dressing a certain way, etc.)
I believe in equality for all which is why I don’t like the term “feminism.” There isn’t anything that I specifically believe all women should do or not do, but I do have my own personal restrictions of things that I just don’t see myself doing or saying. There are things that I see as more “ladylike” (as well as other types of gals out there) but I don’t believe every woman has to be ladylike (or, as previously stated, whatever other type of girl) - they can be whatever the hell they want to be!
