my advice on eating, sleeping, and breathing art

a few thoughts from where i'm at right now: (chock full of contradictions, things that will make my mom worry, and things i may totally disagree with in the ease of summer.)

drink diet coke. there's no shame. everyone has their addictions. mine could be much worse. i like that the newest cans all say "live positively" on the side.

getting more than four hours of sleep is unproductive. (or so a wise tv sitcom character once advised...)

there is just too much work to be done to be sleeping all the time. if you're bored, you're doing something wrong.

take on all that you can. and do what you want to do and need to do. figure out how to make it all work later. and if it means you don't sleep for a day, a week, or an entire semester, so be it.

when possible, catch up. weekends are prime time for sleeping in and stocking up.

multi-task. it's a beautiful thing.

my prioritizing means that i know there is more to college than assignments. (don't get me wrong, that part is important too... but if you stay in that comfort zone you only know so much.)

put everything in perspective. what seems like stress now won't even be remembered years from now. but you will look back and wonder how you did it all. and that is much better than wondering if you missed out on something.

you're always supposed to go too far, because that's what living is all about.
