15 Georgia O'Keeffe Quotes Everyone Needs To Hear

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."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
