So I've been spending a lot of quality time with my buddy, Andrew Loomis:
Paired with movie marathons playing in the background, fun times are had! :)
Now that summer's here, and finals are over...I finally have some time to breathe. This year was hard, physically and mentally: too often did I find myself buried in piles and piles of work, and worse: digging myself into a deep pit of expectations that left me exhausted and disappointed with myself. The most crushing thing, however, was how so many times I had come close to achieving what I had set out to do -- but I fell short (sometimes even just a few inches), over and over and over again.
But I am setting out this summer to start something new; something great. While many of my goals were not realized to their full potential this year, I need to make the best with what I have right now. I am incredibly fortunate to be where I am today, right now, in so many ways.
I know, somehow, I am capable of really great things -- maybe my time just hasn't come yet. I must not give up, but rather, push hard and give it my best.
