There are no Jack Kerouacs or Holden Caulfields for girls. Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves; they take trips to find men.

"Great" books, as defined by the Western canon, didn’t contain female protagonists I could admire. In fact, they barely contained female protagonists at all.

Study like Spencer Hastings:

  • Research: Read books, read journals, search online articles and publications, etc, perform field studies, question everything.
  • Study with friends: Quiz your friends, tutor courses you’re good at, work in groups and help each other with assignments.
  • Stay organized: File your papers, color-code, organized chaos always.
  • Friendly competition: Motivate yourself, join competitions, try not to fight with your sister, remember to encourage and respect your peers.
  • Get involved: Sports, debate, language, school productions, writing etc. Participate in anything that showcases your skills and talent.
  • Ask for help: Talk to your teachers/profs, get to know your school services, and you can always make an appointment with a local psychologist (before things spiral out of hand..)
  • Don’t speedJust don’t do it
  • Stay interested and explore your options: Attend campus tours or events, volunteer, stay connected to peers from different areas, network, apply to more than one option (be it schools, scholarships etc.)  
  • Caffeinate, but remember to hydrate. Coffee, coffee, redbull, coffee, tea, coffee, sometimes water. 
  • Sleepwhat is sleep?

There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.
Joseph Brodsky (via schattengespenst)

She did not need much, wanted very little. A kind word, sincerity, fresh air, clean water, a garden, kisses, books to read, sheltering arms, a cozy bed, and to love and be loved in return.
