20s.

So, this whole quarter-life crisis… it’s too much. It’s weird 25, I graduate with my Masters this month, and I have never been more confused. It’s not only career goals, it is my personal life as well. I feel so lost.

Now, once I graduate with my masters I will essentially accomplish the goal I have been working towards since I was 8 years old. That is huge. It’s like you pretty much have accomplish your goals, now what? Of course I know what I want to do. I want to work in public policy, politics, and work in programs that assist persons who are not able to assist or advocate for themselves. But then the next question… where the hell do I move to?

I am in a unstable, but stable relationship. It’s a long distance one. If you have every been in a long distance relationship, you know after a couple of years it is game time! Time to figure out when you two will be living in the state. But what if I move to the same city, and we break up? However, if I do not try to move to the same city it’s over. Do I want to live where he lives? I mean it is not the worse thing, I have a network there, my family is there. But hell, I am young. I am 25. I have no children. Is it time a take advantage of that?

My Favorite Quotes about Love and Growing Up from How I Met Your Mother

His Vice. Her Evils.:

Some of my favorites quotes, too!

If you know me very well, you know that I am usually in bed (or would like to be) by 9:30pm, asleep at the 10:45pm. Or 11, the latest.

Of course, there are days where that schedule does not work. Like last night, couldn’t sleep. So I turned to Netflix, which is weird because I hardly ever watch it now, and re watched How I Met Your Mother.

I love this show!! It’s been awhile since I’ve actually sat down and watched it. This show made me cry, laugh, angry, happy, the list goes on. Hands down, my favorite TV show series. Despite, the ending, ugh.

Anyway, after a few episodes, I went looking for my little journal, where I just scribble quotes I love. Shouldn’t be a surprise but majority of the quotes I’ve written were from this show.

So I thought it would be nice to share some of these on…

How I Met Your Mother

  • ” I know it’s a mistake, but there are certain things in life where you know it’s a mistake but you don’t really know it’s a mistake because the only way to really know it’s a mistake is to make the mistake and look back and say ‘yep, that was a mistake.’ So really, the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake, because then you’d go your whole life not knowing if something is a mistake or not. And dammit, I’ve made no mistakes! I’ve done all of this; my life, my relationship, my career, mistake-free. ” -Lily

  • “I never wanted that… Of course, it’s one thing not to want something; it’s another to be told you can’t have it. I guess it’s just nice knowing that you could someday do it if you change your mind. But now, all of a sudden, that door is closed.” -Robin
  • “I used to be in such a hurry all the time. Everything was so urgent. Now I figured, if it’s going to happen it’ll happen when it happens. I’m not going anywhere, she’s not going anywhere. What’s the rush, right?” -Ted

“”Here’s something about mistakes. Sometimes even when you know something is a mistake, you’ve got to do it anyway.” My mistake was going after her around the city. Hoping I’d find her somewhere and she’d be glad to see me. But you see, life doesn’t work that way. Sometimes you just find things. Sometimes you don’t. And you can’t play with the universe trying to be the master of everything, playing with you chances trying to make a moment that simply wasn’t meant to be.

George Washington Carver –> Creator of Peanut butter, milk, cheese, soap, etc..!

About 1865 – 05/01/1943 (79)

Capture d’écran 2015-06-02 à 16.01.35George Washington Carver was born on a farm near Diamond, Missouri, in Newton County about 1865.

His mother, Mary, was owned by Moses and Susan Carver.

His father, a slave on a neighboring farm, died before George was born. When George was just a few months old, he and his mother were kidnapped from the Carver farm by a band of men who roamed Missouri during the Civil War era. These outlaws hoped to sell George and his mother elsewhere. Young George was recovered by a neighbor and returned to the Carvers, but his mother was not.

George and his older brother, Jim, were raised by Moses and Susan Carver. George Washington Carver changed the agricultural and economic life of many poor farmers.

Dear Music–

4.

The way you have my heart is so unwavering! I will probably write 100 more letters to you. I love you. Like I am in love with you. The way it makes you feel. The way it makes you forget. The way it makes you remember. Man I love you, Music. You have made my world go ’round & ’round! Everything I dream and feel is because of the lyrics in your songs. You know me even when I am busy trying to figure out myself. Hip hop. Pop. Rap. Rock. Every bit of it. I love it.

Thank you for fixing my life. 

Young.

On Writing: Motivation

Originally posted on adoptingjames:

motivation

When it comes to writing and developing characters, you need always to keep one word in mind: motivation.

Motivation is helpful in two fronts. Motivation…

a) defines characters, and

b) pushes the story along

Think about it. In order for the beautiful harmonizing of a solid story and lovable characters to occur, several things must happen, but the main thing is motivation.

Think Lord of the Rings. Not only is the story itself driven by the motivation to destroy the ring, but the characters are defined so clearly because of that motivation.

Think Finding Nemo. The title itself is the motivation behind the story and the characters.

Motivation is nearly everything in a story. Why am I writing this? Why is the bad guy bad? Why did my protagonist just do that?

Motivation.

But the catch is, the motivation must be believable.

Writers – don’t make your characters…
