Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are on the cover of Teen Vogue this month. They never talk about their personal lives in interviews (notably her Vogue cover this month) but they appeared together anyway. The pictures are “friendly” enough but the interview is the most adorable thing. They finish each other’s sentences, giggle at their remarks, compliment each other genuinely and seem happy as two very successful and in love clams. (Also where does that expression come from? Are clams actually happy.)
My favorite line: “It was like I woke up when she came in”-Andrew Garfield on auditioning with her. These are the best articles about relationship, no cliches, just two people who are happy together and make each other better.
If they ever break up, I’m going to reread this interview and be very sad.
This is weird… Really weird… F–ing weird… (The Tango Maureen anyone?) I’m obsessed with the CIA World Factbook. Go ahead, bookmark it. Just trust me. This wonderful resource, as the CIA explains, “provides information on the history, people, government, economy, geography, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues for 267 world entities.” What does that mean? There is a HUGE amount of information about literally every corner … Continue reading CIA World Factbook
Amazon has something for students entitled, oh so creatively, amazon student. You get access to amazon prime to order textbooks, and stuff comes really fast.

I’ve used this to great … Continue reading Amazon One Click
If you have a summer internship that pays money, you are very lucky. If you have one with airconditioning, you’re fortunate. If you have one you can wear pajamas to, I envy you enormously. I would never wear pajamas outside of the house but I’d still like some comfort. My summertime uniform emphasizes cotton, shorts, light oxfords, and flip flops. Blouses and flats can be … Continue reading Working Girl
Half the point of having a blog may be to share this quotation with just one more person. And yes, quotation is a noun, quote is a verb. It’s a pet peeve of mine. Mark Twain wrote this in The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It, which I have never read but really ought to. “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people … Continue reading Quit Vegetating
For about three years, I’ve wanted to start a blog. Somewhere to collect all the thoughts (well some of the thoughts) that rattle around my head. My only guide is a handy little note on my iphone with potential topics. I read lots of blogs, magazine, books, websites, and subway advertisements. I’m a college student who loves finding the perfect chapstick AND reading about diplomacy. … Continue reading Well It’s About Time
