"Work. Sleep. Family. Friends. Fitness. Pick three. And remember, you can choose a different three every day. As long as it balances out in the long run, you're ok. So don't put pressure on yourself to do all five of those things well every single day." - Randi Zuckerberg
Our French socialist law professor says that he doesn't like poor people. What he means is that he doesn't like people to be poor. It makes it difficult to live as a community. He believes in better living conditions for prisoners. "What's to make people fear going to jail?" I think. But I have to admit that I agree with him.

Today my boyfriend and I were talking about relationships and about how it's sometimes possible to come across a person who captivates you.

I'm using the dating site 'Tinder' to practice speaking French.

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
