Musing On My 1st Year As A McNair Scholar
[[free write for 15 minutes]] I didn’t know what to expect when I started the program. Here I was still trying to figure out why UCLA would even admit me - a quarter had gone by and I hadn’t come up with a single good reason - now people were telling me I had the potential to exceed in grad school? “It must be because I look good on paper, I told myself.” The morning of orientation I felt awkward...
Anonymous asked: I saw you at ucla today and I just want to let you know that you're even more beautiful in person than you are in your pictures. Didn't think that would be possible but it is.
Anonymous asked: you always have the greatest insight on stuff... my best friend of 8 years moved 8 hours away for college. Lately I feel like we're growing apart and like she just doesn't care for our relationship anymore. I know this might be weird... but what's your take on the situation? what would AVRIEL do?

I need feminism
whoneedsfeminism: because when guys hit on me, they won’t go away unless I say ‘I have a boyfriend/husband’. Apparently ‘I’m not interested in you, go away’, doesn’t mean anything and the only thing to deter them is another man. So, so wrong.
No matter how dim it gets wherever i am
frankocean: I never quit working. I work in the dark cause work is light. I tell my work all my problems because it never gives answers i have already. It never edits without me. Doesn’t call me names. I give my work away, because it doesn’t cost me much. In fact i’m indebted. I work hard since life is hard. Death is a soft place, it can wait. But work ain’t love. And love ain’t work. For sure.

thismodernlifestyle asked: I just reblogged you implications of being bi-racial and I am truly inspired by how you were able to express the struggles that come along with being both black and white. I have had a lot of identity issues and reading that really helped. It's good to know there are people out there that have dealt with and experienced similar judgements and expectations. So thank you for sharing, and keep...
What do I want?
Life. All of it. Everything that it has to offer me. Is that fame? Probably not. Is that money? Only enough so that I can continue to live Is that travel? Maybe…but travel could be internal or external. Is that intensely felt emotion? Is that love? Is that learning + growing? Yes. [note to self: learn x grow x love x repeat = maximize the shit out of your days.]
I've said it before and I'll say it again...
I’m going to be Dr Epps before I’m Mrs Anything. And, no, you (whoever you are) will not be the one to change my mind.
