“When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were things like astronaut, president, or in my case… princess.
When we were ten, they asked again and we answered – rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist. But now that we’ve grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how ‘bout this: who the hell knows?!
This isn’t the time to make hard and fast decisions, its time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere chill. Fall in love – a lot. Major in philosophy ‘cause there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again, because nothing is permanent.
So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be… we won’t have to guess. We’ll know.”

stole this from zhu’s blog. and from a friend’s msn pm:
“if you don’t like where you are, change it. you are not a tree.”
was on mc today. and hopefully tomorrow. headache wasn’t the main culprit. reluctance to return to work was. i guess its time to move on. despite having been in different working environments, i realized one thing hasn’t changed – being at the top of the corporate ladder doesn’t equate to happiness. enjoying what you do, does.
i’m gonna miss that salary. but 22+ isn’t exactly the age i should be worrying about paying the bills right? i can live life to the fullest now and worry about the money later, or i can work hard now and regret missing out on life later.
i think…i choose not to regret.
