'I think about what I’d think of my decisions when I’m 80 looking back, and it helps me make sound, responsible choices.' - Taylor Swift

(If you are a band following me in the hopes I will check out your music, I'm sorry but I probably won't. I don't mean to be rude. I usually find new music through NME Radio.)

Sang froid and Equanimity. Grace under pressure.

'Fill the unforgiving minute...'.

'Oh, Maya says I'm lacking in depth,
I will do my best' - The Strokes

'You're all Chrome' - Heads Will Roll - Yeah Yeah Yeahs

'The ballad of a dove. Go with peace and love.' - The Band Perry

'Excuse me if I spoke too soon
My eyes have always followed you around the room' - NGHFB

'Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine / And we'll walk from this dark room for the last time' - Open Your Eyes - SP

'Shut your eyes, I spin the big chair / And you'll feel dizzy, light, and free / And falling gently on the cushion / You can come and sing to me' - Shut Your Eyes - SP

'Come to me. Just in a dream. Come on and rescue me' - Madness - Muse

Desire leads to SUFFERING.

'The whole of life becomes an act of letting go but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.' - Life of Pi

"Tampons were packed with their strings connecting them, like a strip of sausages, so they wouldn’t float away. Engineers asked Ride, “Is 100 the right number?” She would be in space for a week. “That would not be the right number,” she told them. At every turn, her difference was made clear to her. When it was announced Ride had been named to a space flight mission, her shuttle commander, Bob Crippen, who became a lifelong friend and colleague, introduced her as “undoubtedly the prettiest member of the crew.” At another press event, a reporter asked Ride how she would react to a problem on the shuttle: “Do you weep?”"

Men don’t appreciate the amount of self-control women have to exercise in order not to spend their entire lives facepalming.

“I’m not fearless. I’m terrified. I’m always terrified of dying. I act like I know what I’m doing but I don’t. I don’t know if Isaac Is dying right now…if I made a mistake with Scott. I don’t know what my dad is thinking. I don’t know if we should trust Derek. I don’t know anything.”
