“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.”- James Dean
Life's to short to worry about making mistakes. If you desire it go for it with all your heart. 99.9% of the time you'll end up with it anyways. :-)

AIN’T NO WAY IN HELL THIS WOMAN IS FIFTY
When you see me show me your bachelors, show me your masters. That’s the best thing you can do for me, as my fan.

I love the way Nicki encourages people with education. I’ve seen her ask about report cards on Twitter and tell young people to bring their C’s up to B’s and B’s up to A’s. And this quote is too awesome. ❤

In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death [and Renisha McBride and Jonathan Ferrell], we’ve seen a lot of discussion of the larger societal issues that play into how and when people are perceived as criminals. There were hoodies, there were marches, and there were frank talks from parent to child about how to minimize the danger of being a young person of color. On the other side, there were justifications of George Zimmerman’s actions: a smear campaign against Martin’s character, and plenty of writers explaining that statistically, blacks are simply more dangerous to be around.
That framing ignores the realities behind the numbers. Here are five myths about crime and people of color.
