"I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’"

Cooking with Asian mothers
Me: How much time do I give it? When will I know it's ready?
Mother: Focus on the bubbles, when the bubbles bubble a certain way you will know it's ready
Me:
Mother:
Me:
Mother:
Me: I can't tell whether the bubbles are bubbling differently than before
Mother: Get out of my kitchen.

condesces:

defend non-native speakers of english to the grave

defend people with stigmatized accents to the grave

defend speakers of marginalized varieties of english to the grave

I’ll always remember when one of my co-workers was telling me Filipinos had the worst accents and then I told her I was Filipino…

"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees."

I always love the quotes you post, Andi :) I’m over the quarter life crisis hehe.

"métro-boulot-dodo
[may-tro-booh-loh doh-doh]"

( French idiom) A star among phrases for an untranslatable succinctness that sums up a pointless existence (subway, work, sleep).  (via wordsnquotes)

My high school French teacher always talked about this, but I had no idea until I got a job..

"We have to listen to people. Folks want to believe that genitals and biology are like destiny! All these designations are based on a penis, however many inches that is, and then a vagina. And that’s supposed to say all these different things about who people are. When you think about it, it’s kind of ridiculous. People need to be willing to let go of what they think they know about what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman. Because that doesn’t necessarily mean anything inherently. Folks are just really uncomfortable with that sense of uncertainty, or that shift."
