the life, the universe & everything

"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons." - T.S.Eliot

takingstockofwhatmattersmost:

i called her andromeda
and i was her galaxy
for a few billion years we will love
unabashed
until one day we collide with a force that tears universe’s apart
love slung asunder
we were meant to end this way

Virginia Woolf’s suicide note (to husband Leonard)
Dearest,
I feel certain I am going mad again. I feel we can’t go through another of those terrible times. And I shan’t recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can’t concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don’t think two people could have been happier till this terrible disease came. I can’t fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can’t even write this properly. I can’t read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that - everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can’t go on spoiling your life any longer.
I don’t think two people could have been happier than we have been

uma metáfora pra vida:

"Saio da redação para a rua sem uma pauta definida. Loucura. Este é um jornal do interior, o chefe tem de se ocupar de mil coisas que não a pauta, portanto o repórter que se vire." - Eustáquio Gomes, 2 de agosto de 1972, in Viagem ao Centro do Dia - Um diário.

[[Please note that there are many very valid criticisms of this project.  If you are interested, my response can be found here.]]

Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power.  I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:

I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.

This is groundbreaking
