Yesterday was my first day being fully 19 and if I had one birthday wish it’d be that the next years be the opposite of what I just went through. Don’t get me wrong, I was well taken care of for those first 19 years, but I’ve got nothing to show for them other than a proficiency in the Pokedex, a fencing camp 2012 medal, and a total of one hookup.
I can’t change what I don’t confront, so I’ve had to come face to face with the underachieving piece of work in the mirror. He’s got potential, but it’s gonna take persistence and discomfort to turn this ship around. And not letting fear of failure stop me from trying, because I’m stuck with me so what choice do I have?
