Want to see how beauty queens will fare after landing with a deadly crash? Dying to see what happens when showers and boys, coaching and candy, and the other countless modern luxuries these teens dreams have are used to are taken away? Curious to see what happens when teen girls are left to…
We are not only a generation of reality TV watching, Twitter over-sharing, mp3 listening, spoiled little brats.
We are the children of J.K. Rowling. We are the generation of global community. We share and we enlighten the world with news that needs more attention than the celebrity blast of the week. We believe in fairness, openness, and love. We believe in the better parts of man-kind.
We did not create the problems of today. We were born into it. We were given the debt that seems impossible to repay and problems only Orwell could have imagined. We are the ones who hug our books and encourage literacy. We are the ones who seek new worlds and hope for better days. Yet we are accused of not caring about anything important, not participating in anything worth while, and not solving anything problematic. Accused of laziness, stupidity, and over confidence.
This is a call to my generation’s confidence. Let not the screw ups of the past define your future. Let not the challenges we are facing stop us from finding our way. Embrace your education and choose to use it as a weapon. Prove your constant communications online are not just frivolous and meaningless jabbers of a young adult but rather the plans of a better tomorrow. The Greatest Generation survived the Great Depression, fought through World War II, and created a new hope when it was all said and done. We have the power to do just the same.
“You look worried. Really, you should relax. Reading is a pleasurable activity and worrying is bad for your heart.”Beauty Queens by Libba Bray (via bibliojungle)
“Read. After being force-fed lists of required texts, take this opportunity to binge on books you would actually enjoy. Revisit the classics you discovered in high school. They will make more sense now.”Twanna Hines, writer and sexual health advocate. ‘Know That You Will Screw Up’: Real Talk for New Graduates - News - GOOD (via bookoisseur)
If your parents didn’t have sex multiple times, there wouldn’t be you (MAYBE)… LOL JUST SAYING!

“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.”Susan Cain, Quiet (via revelationsong)

“There are very few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on appearance of either merit or sense.”Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (via bookpeek)

Want to know how much this book is worth giving a shot? I borrowed Across the Universe from the library, and after finishing, ordered a copy of my very own online.
First and foremost, the cover, perfection. Not only is the front of the jacket gorgeous to look at, the flip side, like so…
