It doesn’t matter if you’re pretty
or have things all over your face,
because what truly matters is
what’s inside you.
this is actually the most meaningful and thoughtful post i have ever seen on tumblr
I was recently catching up with a friend from high school as she spilled details over the 5 year reunion I was unable to attend. I was thrilled to hear about where people are now. I don’t live in the area anymore, and I have begun to realize that is it so nice to talk to people who understand exactly where you are from, just for the sake of a nice conversation if nothing else. I told my friend that I wished I had kept a diary in high school just so that I could go back and read about all the little moments and interactions that happened with people that I have now forgotten. High school seemed like such a big deal at the time , and over Thanksgiving when I walked into a local bar and saw people that were in a different group in high school I definitely slipped back into the “Oh, you can’t talk to them” phase for about 2 minutes. Then, I realized none of that matters at this point in our lives. It’s just cool to see someone you recognize, and have a conversation, even if you never talked to them during all 13 years of school.
Now I’m in grad school and I’m realizing that it is important for me to remember people and who they are. Connections are great things, and knowing people across the country and the world provide endless opportunities , not only professionally but for leisure as well. On a search for some inspiration regarding running, a friend introduced me to a couple of blogs. Reading them made me realize that I might benefit from sharing my experiences, mostly for the future me. However, I figured I would try TUMBLR out to see how I like it before moving to a “blog” website. So, here goes nothing! My name is Brianne.
This is me completing my very first marathon, the Blue Sky Trail Marathon in Fort Collins, Colorado. 2013 was a huge year for me, which has been incentive to write about 2014. I just began training for my second marathon, which will be the Colorado Marathon in May. I currently attend Colorado State University and am a graduate student in the Applied Developmental Sciences doctoral program with research interests in developmental disabilities.
I’m hoping to introduce myself more and more with the posts, but to keep the first one short and sweet, I feel this is enough of an introduction. When I’m not running or in grad school, I enjoy with going to local concerts and trying all the craft beer I can while I’m here. Last night I tried New Belgium’s Lips of Faith Cascara Quad (http://www.newbelgium.com/Beer/detail.aspx?id=29522653-796e-474c-ac5f-b7fd240ff8cb)
Just a little taste of my life for now. I hope to write about grad school , running, beer,and some crazy workouts and nutrition changes I’m attempting to make. For instance, as part of a 365 days of being active and a slight hangover, I will be going to do Yoga right now, in my basement.
hahaha so true right now
I get stuck on fences and won’t come down and then when I’m saved I like to molest your sweatshirt so you can’t sleep .

this is what heterophobia would look like if it was real. if you believe that heterophobia is a real thing that exists, please watch this because you will see that it simply doesn’t exist, that it never has and never will.
tbh I think everyone should watch this anyway because it’s very clever and very powerful
It’s been a few years since this post originated, but I was doing an assignment today about HIV/AIDS, and just wanted to say this is the type of person who is inspiring for a movement towards further research and education. I may not be a celebrity , but I hope to be an inspiration for research on developmental disabilities with my pursuing of a doctoral degree and being an advocate for organizations. I begin in August 2013, and I am so thrilled to have an opportunity.
20 years ago Monday, Magic Johnson told the world he had HIV. At the time, the disease had an expiration date — one that millions of people have died fighting. Johnson, however, has managed to beat the odds, thanks to medical breakthroughs. Not that it was an easy announcement at the time — even for a man of his celebrity and good-guy stature, it required some walking on eggshells. ”I knew I was going to suffer,” he says. “But if this could help someone else who was suffering, then I would do it.” But in the end, Johnson’s reputation won out, allowing him to use his celebrity to encourage funding for research into stopping the disease for everyone — not just him. The L.A. Times has a couple of great stories up about Magic. Read them both. They’re worth it.
Guitar case so comfy 😺🎸
