Amy Poehler for Papermag (x)
Throughout her career, Poehler has gone out of her way to encourage and pass along advice to greenhorn comedians, and I wondered who passed along hard-earned wisdom to her? She didn’t hesitate to answer. “I did a sketch on Conanin the mid-’90s,” she says. “Nipsey Russell was there, too, doing a bit. He said, ‘Amy, Hollywood’s got one typewriter, and a hundred copy machines.’ And I nodded as if I knew what he was talking about. And I will never forget those words, because I don’t know what they mean.” - (x)
Legit crying when Jacob said he was afraid of not seeing Seth for a long time.

The process of remembering something is really cool. When you go through an event (which is called episodic) or when you study (somatic), neurons in your brain get to working. But the synapses fade away and the pathways disappear after a while, its what we call short term memory. But through the process of consolidation (repeating study material, or over-analyzing something), proteins kinda alter the neurons and they stabilize. Basically the more you think about something, the more it sticks with you. So when people tell you not to think about something bad, they’re not being unhelpful or condescending, they’re actually giving the right advice.
So, technically, memories are formed by proteins.
