15 Georgia O'Keeffe Quotes Everyone Needs To Hear
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_O%27Keeffe

Hello everyone, I want to introduce you all to my favorite artist. Georgia O'Keeffe is a female painter who lived during the 1900's and continuously challenged the norms of society during her time. She dared to live her life by her own rules and to live with adventure. As my favorite artist she was always one to speak her mind and stand firm in her beliefs. She helped to inspire others to reach for their dreams, no matter how terrifying they are, to be themselves and to not apologize for it. She is, Georgia O'Keeffe.

1. "I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do."

2. "Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing."

3. "It's not enough to be nice in life. You have got to have nerve."

4. "I wish people were all trees and I think I could enjoy them then."

5. "I think it's so foolish for people to want to be happy. Happy is so momentary - you're happy for an instant then you start thinking again. Interest is the most important thing in life; happiness is temporary, but interest is continuous."

6. "Where I was born and where and how I have lived in unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest."

7. "I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free."

8. "Nothing is less real than realism. Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we can get at the real meaning of things."

9. "I do not like the idea of happiness - it is too momentary - I would say that I was always busy and interested in something - interest has more meaning to me than happiness."

10. "Take time to look."

11. "You get whatever accomplishment you are willing to declare."

12. "Someone else's vision will never be as good as your own vision of yourself. Live and die with it 'cause in the end it's all you have. Lose it and you lose yourself and everything else. i should have listened to myself."

13. "I am frightened all the time. But I never let it stop me. Never!"

14. "I don't see why we ever think of what other think of what we do - no matter who they are. Isn't it enough to just express yourself?"

15. "I know now that most people are so closely concerned with themselves that they are not aware of their own individuality, I can see myself, and it has helped me to say what I want to say in paint."

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
