why i don’t believe in USA’s idea of college

College is great for some people. For others, it’s a waste of time.

I look back on icons: Shakespeare (I LOVE SHAKESPEARE) or Bethoven or Monet, Dali, and more. There is something that they all have in common: a sort of maniacal passion for what they do. It consumes them and drives them to learn and dig deeper. But they dig deeper on their own. They learn not for grades in college but for the sake of learning more about what they love.

Yes, some people need the discipline of the USA’s higher education system. Hell, some people even need the discipline that the military offers. And that’s just fine. But others don’t. Instead, they spend their time doing the traditional thing — going to college — until finally someday they have the courage to make the leap and go for it…

Lady Gaga said in last month’s ELLE interview: “I loved NYU, but I thought I could teach myself about art better than the school could. I really felt New York was my teacher and that I needed to bite the bullet and go it alone. I wasn’t interested in going to frat parties and doing those sorts of collegiate things.”

smartwater makes us wise.

remember how we said that if people describe themselves as down-to-earth, then they usually aren’t?

well, in our experiences, the same thing goes for males who tell you that they “want to treat you right.” if the man is truly a good guy, he will just treat you right. simple as that. it will not even cross his mind to need to verbalize this because it is inherent within him that he is going to treat you right. so, note to self: “i want to treat you right” = hasta la vista, baby.

just a little red flag alert.

2 things that changed my life forever:

1. Lindt milk chocolate truffles

2. John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

run. (if you can)

If you walk into a bar, and old, creepy men start to swarm like vultures and there’s no one there to defend you except other ladies in the same highly undesirable predicament…

Then immediately turn and run, but only if your heels permit.

On a different note… mini LUNA bars.  Enough said.

hello earth, we are down.

When we were thinking about how we should describe this blog thing, we had a few comments we thought necessary to share…

If people feel the need to describe themselves as down-to-earth, then they usually aren’t.  So, we’re not going to say we’re down to earth, but just know that — in fact — we are.

We’re down to try new things.  Down to chill.  Down to wear amazingly well-fitting premium denim.  Down to share our (often) entertaining and (sometimes) embarrassing experiences.  Down to flirt with males.  Down to laugh hysterically at things that are not that hysterically funny.

Scratch that… Down to laugh hysterically at things that are not even remotely funny.  Down to just be… amazing.  Clearly.

^^ Stupid, but cute.  Admit it.
