hollaback1945 asked:

do u have any tips on pushing yourself towards future career + ambition as a teen? esp. going into a field as a minority party, presenting a different perspective, etc-- what are your methods, how do you focus on your goals & stomp everything in the path of them, how do you stay motivated and demand to be taken seriously, i want to dominate & i know i can (i'm going into computer science/tech) but need help w/ motivation, starting steps, how do u set urself up for success, mistakes & victories?

arabellesicardi answered:

  1. stay hungry
  2. you’re replaceable unless and until you prove otherwise
  3. stop focusing on having a method and just do things 
  4. own up and embrace and recognize your mistakes
  5. nobody has time for your ego
  6. don’t apologize for your thoughts or feelings as a matter of politeness or habit
  7. never assume that when people disagree with you they are attacking you personally — it’s honestly not about you
  8. don’t fuck with energy vampires 
  9. find people smarter than you and make them your best friends and mentors 
  10. if you’re running a long game, everyone is important — remember that
  11. see step one, and memorize 

i honestly have never needed motivation or lacked ambition when it has concerned my dreams though. like, it might take me awhile to finish a story or whatever, but…..the hustle???? has never???? been something??? i needed to be convinced into??? take what is yours. it is there. it is waiting. if you don’t, someone else will. you’re not the only one who wants it.






This is what happens when white guys listen to Indian music

holy shit

whenever I’m feeling sad I just watch this video.

I was not expecting that level of choreography or that they would actually know the words.  This is awesome.
