“Einstein, when he arrived in America, was shocked at how Black Americans were treated. “There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States,” he said. “That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. And, I do not intend to be quiet about it.” And, he wasn’t.
Although he had a fear of speaking in public, he made all the effort he could to spread the word of equality, denouncing racism and segregation and becoming a huge proponent of civil rights even before the term became fashionable. Einstein was a member of several civil rights groups (including the Princeton chapter of the NAACP).
Happy Birthday Albert Einstein!”

Wang Yue, a senior at Dalian Industry University, uses her paintbrush to turn ugly tree holes into lovely views in Shijiazhuang, capital city of Hebei Province.
Wang Yue calls the tree-hole paintings “meitu” which means “beautiful journey.” The paintings on the trees have brightened the city during the dull, grey winter.

From China to Costa Rica, from Mali to Malaysia acclaimed singers and musicians, women and men, have come together to spread a message of unity and solidarity: We are “One Woman”.
Launching on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2013, the song is a rallying cry that inspires listeners to join the drive for women’s rights and gender equality. “One Woman” was written for UN Women, the global champion for women and girls worldwide, to celebrate its mission and work to improve women’s lives around the world.
This year, International Women’s Day focuses on ending violence against women — a gross human rights violation that affects up to 7 in 10 women and a top priority for UN Women. As commemorations are underway in all corners of the globe, “One Woman” reminds us that together, we can overcome violence and discrimination: “We Shall Shine!” Join us to help spread the word and enjoy this musical celebration of women worldwide.
To one of my best friends, Vanessa. I know you don’t have a tumblr, but thank you for everything. Thanks for helping me find this job that I love and for studying with me. Hopefully we go to medical school together. :)
Also thank you B for always making me dinner and taking care of me when I forget to do so. Lastly, thank you to my family for always supporting me and making me laugh.
This man writes an academic paper to propose to his girlfriend.
What if he gave the paper to her to read and she doesn’t actually read it. Then he asks her, “What did you think?” and she says, “Oh yeah! It was great.” But she lied and obviously did not read it or she would have seen the proposal.
Haha! Sorry, I have to ruin everything with lame scenarios.
Happy Chinese New Year…
I’ve decided to simply be more happy this year. Focusing on happiness will help me be much more productive this year.
Work to be happy does not work, happy and then work is a much better equation.
