Pretty much just my mind on a blog. I love it. P.S. If it doesn't meet your standards, my insincerest apologies.

Yes! A woman has finally won the “Nobel Prize of Mathematics”

If you had any doubts about whether or not women can absolutely own the STEM fields, let Dr. Maryam Mirzakhani dispel them for you.
The Stanford professor, a widely-respected pioneer on “dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces,” made history in a major way on Tuesday by becoming the first woman ever to win the Fields Medal: the highest international prize in mathematics, and sometimes thought of as the “Nobel Prize of Mathematics.”

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?

She can’t hide her emotions. But is that even possible?…So what can you say about Vika? We used to talk to her about that all the time, for not being able to contain her emotions in the gym. When she can’t get a skill, she sits down on the bench with a crash. Gets mad, jumpy. That happens less now, but she hasn’t been able to become completely calm. - Vera Kolesnikova, on her daughter Viktoria Komova

Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel. Natalie Dormer

Letting Dreams Die

twopartsjoy:

Sometimes I think we don’t give enough credit to the act of killing off our old dreams.

This isn’t letting go of dreams as a manner of giving up—this is relinquishing the hold that toxic thoughts have on us.

This is a sweet death.

This is walking through all the campuses…
