I have been grasping for inspiration lately. A recent personal setback has created this intense wealth of motivation and desire to prove myself in my professional and academic life. This has resulted in some of the most efficient studying, planning, and self-improvement I've ever done, but somehow I just can't seem to come up with anything to post on this blog right now. I think a lot of it has to do with stress. My stress level is at a baseline 8 on the 1-10 scale these days, so there's always something a little more pressing than blogging, even if it's just giving myself a well-deserved 20 minute tv break while I eat. Obviously, in this vein, today's 20-min break is dedicated to finding (and sharing) inspiration instead of watching yet another episode of Parks and Recreation.

-"Roll the Dice" by Charles Bukowski. Just read it and feel the adrenaline.

-Aaron Christopher Judd's "(365) Days of Tumblr" Project. Part One. Part Two. Okay, they're a little hipster...don't judge.

-Can you tell I like the picture quotes yet?


  1. I feel like we haven't talked in a while. But you'd let me know if anything was wrong, right? =)

  2. darling mugdha, sorry you've been so stressed. here's a link to a short video on creativity and deadlines.
    it's really cute, and i found it interesting. the calvin and hobbes comic you shared is so true, and fun.

  3. i'm so sorry you're stressed sweetness.
    i must say though, this post boosted me 10,000%....thank you so much.
    what a wonderful way to brighten a friend's day.
    i hope you can spark your own heart the way you have just sparked mine.

  4. hope you're not feeling too stressed now, it's in the mindset and i'm sure you will make it through!

    love from the NANA girls xoxo

  5. I LOVE picture quotes, they're always so inspiring and visually interesting. I can look at them for hours!

    When I'm feeling overwhelmed and stressed, I like to think of stress as a sign that I'm really living, working hard, and doing things with my time. I get uninspired and like the Calvin & Hobbs cartoon, I'm not okay with just being happy- I want something more. But take it as it is, and enjoy studying and learning and being great! Keep up the awesomeness!
