May 18

I wasn’t in any sort of slump. One random day I decided to strengthen my resolve. I wasn’t going to fill out my resume again. I was going to do what I wanted. I didn’t have any responsibilities so I was going to have a good time. What work you choose to do is closely connected to your quality of life. It was when I made that decision that I felt my life was worth loving.
