Jonathon Safran Foer. “Everything is Illuminated”
"Brod’s life was a slow realization that the world was not for her, and that for whatever reason, she would never be happy and honest at the same time. She felt as if she were brimming, always producing and hoarding more love inside her. But there was no release…She addressed her world honestly, searching for something deserving of the volumes of love she know she had within her, but to each she would have to say, I don’t love you.”

I want that drive back. The kind that put my passion before anything else. The kind I had when I was a first year, hoping and dreaming of all the things I could be when I was where I am now. I want to tirelessly work towards my dreams and goals again. I want those sleepless nights again. I want those dreamy eyes again. I want that “gonna do whatever the fuck I have to do to get there” kind of attitude I had back then. I want to fight for what I truly want, not just accept where I am.
I’m so thankful for what I’ve learned in the past 3 years. A lot of that has to do with things I’ve learned about myself through the design school and people I have met in it. So much has changed about my life and me as a person, but my desire to be great and accomplish more than I ever thought I could has not.
Let’s get this shit done.
