…i cant wait for this semester to end… so that i can relax, spend my entire day reading blogs and catching up on sitcoms with pointless story lines (although i’m not really a television watcher per say, but modern family and big bag theory are hilarious- greys anatomy brings me to tears every time). but- to be honest, grinding gives my life structure- purpose. i think kanye said it best in champion— ‘for me giving up is way harder than trying’— being lazy makes me feel like shit. and when there are so many overachievers now a days- one day of doing nothing feels like months of mundane. so- as i look back on my 1.5 years of post graduate school- the coal that keeps my engine steaming is looking me dead in the face: TRY HARDER. work harder. do better. rest when the work is done, kid.
living out my dream. and yes, this is indeed paradise.
