Did you know that every time you write on a computer, play a music fie or add up a number with your phone’s calculater, you are using tools that might not exist without the work of women? 

A new book written by Walter Isaacson called The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution reveals a stark contrast to today’s disparity of females in programming and technical jobs. Isaacson sheds light on an important fact—it was women who first dominated this field.

  1. Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
  2. Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
  3. Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
  4. Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
  5. You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
  6. That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
  7. Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
  8. It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
  9. I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
  10. Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.

"I want to feel pretty,
so I take five minutes putting on my lipstick
and another five for my mascara.
I want to feel pretty,
so I put on a push-up bra and take photos of myself,
always from above, where my shirt can’t hide my chest.
I want to feel pretty,
so I post the picture to multiple social media sites
and I judge myself on how many likes they get.
And at some point I have to wonder
who taught me that these are the things I have to do to feel this way
and why they didn’t teach me instead to list off my good qualities until I ran out of fingers,
why they didn’t tell me to remember that I’m one of a kind and that that is beautiful in and of itself.
Who is it that led me to this state of mind, where I look at myself like the before picture of an advertisement?
I am pretty,
I am beautiful,
with or without the lipstick and mascara and push-up bras and no matter the amount of people who bothered to click a heart or thumb shaped button online.
I am pretty.
I am beautiful.
I will repeat it like it is the only truth I know about myself
until it becomes the only one I do.
I am beautiful,
and so are you.

So I get a new calculator and this is the first thing I do with it…

In case you’re wondering, the equation is: f(x)=-10*sin(PI*(x-PI/3))sin(20*PI(x-PI/3))(1+5*e^(-500(x-0.047)^2))X-Min=-1, X-Max=1, Y-Min=-18, Y-Max=18


This is why math is important, kids
