"You are a unique person and you have to be yourself. You can’t be anybody else; you can’t lead anybody else’s life. You have to be comfortable in your own skin and you have to be confident about who you are, whether you’re working at Twitter or running for office. And that is hard to do….and yet it’s all doable once you relax and decide, ‘You know what? This is no dress rehearsal. This is it for me. I want to be who I am.’ You be yourself. Easiest advice to say, hardest advice to follow."

middle schoolers complaining about how stressful school is
Excuse you middle school may have been simpler in your time but these days it can be so brutal. Had you read three Steinbeck books by the time you were thirteen? Probably not.

"Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."
Today was our last lecture, so now all that’s left is:
to study, to review, to focus, and not to fail.

So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.
The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female."
NOT ONLY are the all-time leading goal scorers women, but the US Women’s National Team has MEDALED in EVERY SINGLE WORLD CUP since it was introduced for women in 1991 (two first, one second, three third place finishes).
Sooo thanks for that 3rd place finish in NINETEEN-THIRTY (1930, notatypo), USMNT. Take all the seats, ESPN announcers, and see how it’s done next summer. Also: Google. It takes 3 seconds to garner an education on a topic about which you clearly know very little.
I am about to take off my shirt and run around the soccer field in my sports bra y’all.
