"Se decía que era una luciérnaga. Brillante en la opacidad, lustroso en la oscuridad, certero en la ambigüedad, constante en los altibajos, regularmente decisivo en la indecisión, firme en la duda, persistente en la inacción"

“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

He was like the Renaissance Robert Pattinson

10.6   s e g u n d o s (Crónica)

Menos de once segundos antes, cuando el jugador argentino recibe el pase de un compañero, el reloj en México marca las trece horas, doce minutos y veinte segundos. En la escena central hay también dos británicos y un hombre algo mayor, de origen tunecino. El deporte al que juegan, el fútbol, no es muy popular en Túnez. Por eso el africano parece el único que no está en actitud de alarma atlética.

Se llama Alí Bin Nasser y, mientras los otros corren, él camina despacio. Tiene cuarenta y dos años y está avergonzado: sabe que nunca más será llamado a arbitrar un partido oficial entre naciones.

También sabe que si, doce años antes, cuando se lesionó en la liga tunecina, le hubieran dicho que estaría en un Mundial, no lo habría creído. Tampoco la tarde en que se convirtió en juez: en Túnez no es necesario, para acceder al puesto, más que tener el mismo número de piernas que de pulmones.

Cuando dirigió su primer partido descubrió que sería un árbitro correcto. Fue más que eso: logró ser el primer juez de fútbol al que reconocían por las calles de la ciudad. Lo convocaron para las eliminatorias africanas de 1984 y su juicio resultó tan eficaz que, un año más tarde, fue llamado a dirigir un Mundial.

En México le pedían autógrafos, se sacaban fotos con él y dormía en el hotel más lujoso. Había arbitrado con éxito el Polonia-Portugal de la primera fase, y vigilado la línea izquierda en un Dinamarca-España en donde los daneses jugaron todo el segundo tiempo al achique; él no se equivocó ni una sola vez al levantar el banderín.

Cuando los organizadores le informaron que dirigiría un choque de cuartos —nunca un juez tunecino había llegado tan lejos—, Alí llamó a su casa desde el hotel, con cobro revertido, se lo contó a su padre y los dos lloraron.

Esa noche durmió con sofocones y soñó dos veces con el ridículo. En el primer sueño se torcía el tobillo y tenía que ser sustituido por el cuarto árbitro; en el sueño, el cuarto árbitro era su madre. En el segundo sueño saltaba al campo un espontáneo, le bajaba los pantalones y él quedaba con los genitales al aire frente a las televisiones del mundo.

De cada sueño se despertó con palpitaciones. Pero no soñó nunca, durante la víspera, en dar por válido un gol hecho con la mano. No soñó con que, en la jerga callejera de Túnez, su apellido se convertiría en metáfora jocosa de la ceguera. Por eso ahora dirige el segundo tiempo de ese partido con ganas de que todo acabe pronto.

try your best. not everyone can get all As, and getting all As does not make you better than everyone else. just do the best you can and be the best person you can be.
don’t sleep in class! i know it seems so so tempting but slept my way through geography last year and i got a C in my exam instead of the expected A so…
Don’t tick off your teacher, follow the rules to an extent, get to class on time, respect your classmates and teachers. you know, just be a decent person.
be positive!!! and not just for the first week or so, keep the positivity going throughout the whole school year. if you don’t believe in yourself then why should anyone else?
