Stoicism

The Modern Wimp’s Introduction to Stoicism

Maybe it’s a new concept for you or you’ve probably heard of it before (on facebook or some other social networking site).

“Contrary to common perception, being stoic doesn’t mean being emotionless. The real quality of Stoicism is far more masculine than not caring about anything – it’s about knowing when to care, when to be upset, and how to accept the inescapable with your head held higher than you thought possible.”

This site claims that it’s a male thing but don’t worry, it is just its theme : http://www.primermagazine.com/2010/live/introduction-to-stoicism

Coming down

Once again, I’m on vacation and I don’t want it to end! Not like I’ve done much… I just don’t want to start the school routine over again.

Reading ‘Une Vie’ Maupassant

I just watched this movie called ‘The Spectacular Now’ and I loved it. It was so beautiful! I was in tears at the end (I’m always in tears but trust me, you’ll cry too if you watch the movie). I just wish I didn’t procrastinate so much. It’s not really my fault though because I have no idea what to study for maths and I always get headaches (posture, neck, desk…issues, stuff.) I just wish things were clearer and more precise, it would really make everything easier for me. You can’t just tell someone to learn everything they did from the beginning of the year for a test.

But for now, if you just feel like lying down, and not really doing anything. Welcome to my team!

*throws confetti* (you’ll have to sweep that up later though…)

I’m listening to 4 songs from B’s new album!!! – Flawless, XO, Blue and Drunk In Love

Her songs are full of energy and I love the fact that she included a video for each one. I just wonder how she was able to keep it a secret till it’s release…

Oh and I already watched Chimamanda’s speech on TED which Beyoncé featured in Flawless. She’s a good writer. (Read her collection of short stories ‘The Thing Around Your Neck”)
