I MEAN REALLY. THIS IS UNFAIR. { source: x, x }

"The pinnacle of an education in science is the realization that you are mediocre.That you are made of the same elements as dirt, and that 60% of your DNA is identical to that of a fruit fly. It is the knowledge that you were incredibly lucky to ever be born, and that you will inevitably die. But with this revelation comes an inescapable humility and clarity that leaves no room for selfishness, and gives you every reason to cherish your fellow humans during our short time on this planet. You will realize that only your actions will bring about what you want to see. Once you realize you are powerless against this universe, do you realize how powerful you can be."

Although we strap time to our wrists, stuff it into our pockets, hang it on our walls, a perpetually moving picture for every room of the house, it can still run away, elude and evade, and show itself again only when there are minutes remaining and there is nothing left to do except wait till there are none.

++ Take more pictures.
++ Be satisfied with less. *
++ Keep a {positivity} journal. **
++ 4.0 GPA. ***
++ Get a lab position.
++ Read more books recreationally. ****
++ Be inspired.

Ultimate goal in life is always to just be happy.

* Not necessarily having lower standards, but accepting that some things just are and to not sweat the small stuff. 
** Notebook where I only write/draw/paste/copy things that I love and things that make me feel happy. 
*** Lol how cute, let's amend that to a 3.5 and pray some more. 
**** I don't want to put an arbitrary number on this. I read probably something like 7 books this year and I know I can easily read more than that but I think the gist of this resolution is really to just try harder and to make time

There are many, many things to say about this episode, but I'll try to keep it concise; 

++ The Ron/Leslie friendship cannot be rivaled in my mind. It's the ultimate display of understanding another person, and knowing what he or she needs without possibly even that person knowing. Also the part where Ron calls her "Leslie fucking Knope"??! We always refer to Ron as Ron fucking Swanson, and to have him impart that title onto Leslie is like... the highest Swanson honor. They just balance each other so well and are perfectly different and I just cannot.

++ I'm overwhelmed by how well Ben knows Leslie. I don't even.. feel sad that they broke up, because their relationship still exists. Their story is still being written. 

Leslie, girl, your life is good. You have the most amazing people in your life -- which is more than a lot of people can say for themselves -- and you are pursuing the career of your dreams. It's one of my firmest beliefs in life that if you surround yourself in good company and do what makes you happy, the rest will fall into place. Get it, gurlll. 

I had so much to say about my day, but that is definitely for another time. I'm so happy our show is back!
