"When you’re constantly interacting with talented, dedicated peers and brilliant, accomplished researchers, you can easily begin to feel inferior. If you feel impostor syndrome, you’re in good company — in fact you’re likely part of a large majority of grad students. Sure, lots of people feel like impostors, you think to yourself, but I’m the one who’s right to feel this way. Sometimes no matter what you achieve, you still feel like the kid who doesn’t belong. I often need to remind myself: If you’re here, and you’re trying, and you’re having some fun, you DO belong."
"Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness."

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, first Congressperson to officially describe her religion as “none,” is sworn in not on the Bible, but on the document she’s actually supposed to be protecting and upholding—the Constitution.
[Fun fact: James Madison remains the only president to take his oath of office on a book of laws, rather than the Bible.]
Also, she is the first openly bisexual member of Congress!
She’s also dispelling stereotypes about Creatively-Spelled Americans!
This is so awesome.
I bet Boehner’s hand got all hot and tingly when he picked up that book.
Kyrsten Sinema, you are a rock star.
