Emily. 19. Wannabe hipster. I like cats. Cuddling and rainy days are chill. I also like reading, dancing, and drinking tea. I think math, libraries, and oldies music are cool things. I'm usually thinking about food, being bitter, or making a fool out of myself. I probably don't like you.


I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

― Marilyn Monroe (via psych-quotes)

You are a unique person and you have to be yourself. You can’t be anybody else; you can’t lead anybody else’s life. You have to be comfortable in your own skin and you have to be confident about who you are, whether you’re working at Twitter or running for office. And that is hard to do….and yet it’s all doable once you relax and decide, ‘You know what? This is no dress rehearsal. This is it for me. I want to be who I am.’ You be yourself. Easiest advice to say, hardest advice to follow.

This is a 7-week course, and I don’t really think any of you will remember most of what’s covered in this class. But my hope is that one day a few years from now you’re at a party and something from this class comes up and you’ll be able to sound really smart and impress everyone there.

Jenni Herd, this girl is incredible. I’m 29 and I want to forward this to my mother. Couldn’t have hit the nail on the head any better. I wish there were more Jennis around 10 years ago.
