How have ya beeeen, day 15?
Today’s prompt is “favorite quote and why”. I decided to make this post extremely visual because, as usual, I couldn’t choose just one and I found or made one of those word pictures (you’ll see what I mean) for each one of them. I don’t know how much explaining I’m going to be doing because it’s all going to come out like “I like this one because I like it.” I mean, I’m striving for the utmost in quality here and that’s not quality.
I’ll start with Plato because after looking through the other ones I’ve chosen, I feel like I should make myself look deep and introspective.
See, a word picture. Yea, I don’t know what they’re called either. Anyway, I love this quote and it’s something I’ve lived by for a while now. I always try to smile at people who I pass in the street or at work. You never know what’s going on in someone else’s life, no matter what kind of front they put on. Kindness is like strong perfume – a little of it goes a long way.
I’ve loved this quote for a while now. It puts things into perspective.
The next two are from my newest woman crush, Mindy Kaling/Lahiri. If you don’t watch The Mindy Project, you should start. It’s great and I love it and, while we’re at it, it needs a full third season so #fullseasonformindy.
Kate Spade, to me, exemplifies the woman that I want to be. When I think of her brand, I think of New York socialites running around the city without a care in the world. Her brand is fun, flirty and timeless. I’m not trying to suck up, but if it worked and if someone who has the power to hire over at Kate Spade corporate is reading this, HIRE ME PLEASE. Even if you need someone to staple papers together – I’ll do it! For a nice salary, great benefits, some perks (like a great employee discount), and quite frankly, my own desk, of course. Ehh, I’ll even settle for just the desk, salary and dental.
The next two aren’t from Kate Spade but they fit into that “I’m a carefree New York socialite” vibe.
And finally, a post about quotes wouldn’t be complete without Brooklyn’s own, The Notorious BIG.
I’m sure there’s more but I’ll end it for now. Check my instagram (@maaaartinaaaa) because I post these word pictures often. Will I ever figure out a name for these things?
Actually, two more because I felt like it.
Ok. I’m REALLY done now. See you tomorrow!
