  • Surfing the Internet (reading blogs, looking at pictures, browsing Pinterest)
  • Reading (mostly non-fiction / very select fiction)
  • Studying Korean
  • Watching movies or TV shows
  • Spacing out
  • Coming up with ideas, brainstorming, creating (writing, drawing, designing)

Alone time for me consists of not talking to or engaging with anyone, and being in quiet surroundings. It's extremely important to me, and if I don't get it frequently I become crabby, tired, and anxious. A few hours (or days sometimes) in solitude and I'm ready to socialize again. Rinse and repeat.

  • Be aggressive when you have to be. Don't be afraid to be a "bitch". It's the only way to get things done the way you want them to be done.
  • It's not your responsibility to entertain people.
  • Who cares?
  • Don't let anyone intimidate you.
  • Don't let anyone pressure you.
  • Anything is doable, anything is possible, anything is plausible.
  • It's not that big of a deal. Calm down.
