Cake. Delicious, delicious cake. #dallas
This is funny because I have pictures to hang and I have a haircut appointment this weekend AND I’m making all kinds of decisions. Forward, march!
"I remember days where I’d have classmates breaking down, sobbing, because they just sucked in front of the class, and then in the evening going to see them in a production and being blown away by the magnitude of their talent. That made me more forgiving of myself, and also more daring. Because you fail, and then what? Life goes on. It’s only when you risk failure that you discover things. When you play it safe, you’re not expressing the utmost of your human experience." - Lupita Nyong’o for Backstage Magazine, February 2014
I know nothing about the Oscars except Lupita Nyong’o won (hurrah!) and Jennifer Lawrence fell down again (be safe, Jennifer!)
But this is a great quote and makes me extra-extra-happy she won: talking about how being good at school isn’t the only way to be smart, and failing is not a badge of shame but evidence you tried, which is a step on the road to accomplishment.
