Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry.Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough. - William Saroyan Now: Learning a lot about the "real world" that I've entered and finding out parts that I like and other parts I don't. I think that it's really important that I more actively try to improve myself (whatever that means) now that I'm out of school. So much is up in the air, there's no more graduation date, no more clear cut trophy at the end. What is success? How does that relate to creating a happy/fulfilling life? These are the kinds of questions I'm asking myself, and I'm trying really hard not to fall into what I'm calling The Middle, where things are ok, not great but not bad enough to change. Last time: My mood disproportionately changes my outlook on the world, so I don't think I'm really the same from day to day - or minute to minute. I'm busy, but spending my time well. I still worry a lot though. I'm learning so much about everything so quickly that I don't know what's true or constant, but I am getting used to my lack of ability to know or do everything, however slowly that is happening. I'm riddled with contradictions. I love art in all of its various forms, but especially the passion to create or express some sort of perfection. I want more than anything to cultivate that passion more fully into my life. I feel it most in dance, where there are fleeting moments when you know it was almost there. Last Last time I updated: I worry a lot, but most everything turns out alright. I try to do what I want and often succeed. I'm not certain of nearly anything, but I do my best anyways. I'd like to know that everything is not causally determined, but I think it probably is. And I wonder if that matters. When I choose to do something, I like to do it to the extent of my ability or not at all. And I like it when I feel that I'm doing everything possible for a certain goal. I suppose I'm not great at summarizing. So if you'd like to know something, ask me and I'll tell you.
