"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing; kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles."- Audrey Hepburn

Spring Break

This week has been great thus far.  The sun has been shining and everything feels a bit lighter than in weeks past.  Having spring break really helps me to catch up on sleep, and on things that I have fallen behind, like physics lectures. 
I always feel rushed.  The moment I sit down to breathe, guilt over what is not being done settles in.  Has anyone else been here before?  When I do school work, a nagging feeling that I should be finishing organizing and scheduling that event for my sorority creeps in.  Finally, when I begin to start planning these events, I thought of how I could be studying.  And have I been taking the time to hang out with my friends (it's my senior year after all), or am I too busy with planning and scheduling the future to live in the moment?  And so it goes.  The whole thing is exhausting and vicious, really.  
My priorities need to be redrafted and refined, which may mean letting a few things go. But I already thought that I have let go of many things this year. It was the number one priority thing on my new year resolution list: to let go. 
Well, I guess for now I should just enjoy spring break. The weather in Rochester is extremely bipolar. It felt like spring for the past few days, up until this morning when I walked to school. Then out of the sudden, it was like a snow storm in the middle of winter. Regardless, I'm enjoying myself by going out for dinner with friends, playing video games and having movies marathon, and catching up on physics. 
A few days more and NYC here I come for more fun :)
To be updated.

Daily Note

It's been a while that I have watched a movie that gave me all types of emotions, ever since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I guess. I had this conversation with my friend last night before I fell asleep. Apparently I had a weird taste in movies, and the way I watch movies is also different than normal people. For me to find a person to watch movies with is extremely difficult, and that makes me miss the days in high school where Melody and I went searching for all our favorite movies and spent days watching them. I miss having a person to just have all these movie discussions with. Anyway, the Perks of being a Sunflower has totally made my day. 

Sam: Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we're nothing? 
Charlie: We accept the love we think we deserve. 

"This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you're listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite."

Also I realized today that I am getting so used to having people keeping me company at night. That may sound really bad but I totally sleep better when I have someone next to me, even if I just do my own things. Wonder if I should fix this habit ....
