I know how much it feels like what happens here is gonna dictate the path of the rest of your life, but let me be clear. If you don’t get into Harvard or Yale, or even if you do get into those schools, your numbers and your test scores and your statistics; they’re not as important your growth as a human being, your relationships with other people, the risks you’re willing to take. If you’re learning, you’re growing, you’re getting smarter, you’re gonna do better in life even if you’re numbers aren’t reflecting it. And if you’re grades are great then, fantastic, you keep that up but please make sure that you are becoming great as a person as well. They don’t grade you, on your SATs or at Oxford, on how you treat other people, on how your react to real-life conflict or stress, on how you handle success or failure, and often that’s gonna go a long way in what you accomplish in this world.
I think i really like Charlie Day.
Shout out to Lolita for the suffering she endures on a daily basis.
Statistically, the average wild orca swims 100 miles per day. Given that her tank is 35ft long, this would indicate that she’d have to swim a staggering 150,85 circles per day just to reach her wild counter part’s mileage.
She is completely alone other than the dolphins she shares with who do not speak her dialect.
This whale breaks my heart. Please keep her in your thoughts.
