Best Tweet I’ve seen so far about the snow: RT @bikesnobnyc: I wish people would stop saying “snowpocalypse.” As a survivor of the 2Pacalypse I find it offensive <— that is HILARIOUS!!! Whats not hilarious is that the NJ Governor declared a state of emergency, but yet my job decided they still wanted to be open. #FAIL!!
Did I mention that I finished the book “The Last Lecture?” I thought it was soo good! It was exactly what I needed in my life. I mean, it made me think about how in life so many of us give up on our ideals and settle in with its distant cousin reality. No FAIR. It really is true: Reality Shouts; ideals whisper. – Nathaniel LeTonnere, translated . Why is it that way? I want my dreams and fantasies to be close. But now they are so far away I don’t even know what they are any more. Last lecture helped me think about what are the things I dreamed of doing when I was a kid, that aren’t too far off now.
— 1. I wanted to be lawyer when I was younger. I just had it made up in my mind that I was going to be a kickass trial attorney. So, I had it alll in my head I was going to go to college, major in Criminal Justice and then go directly to law school. NOPE! I took my first criminal justice course and found that it SUCKED!! And I one Graduate TA (Teachers Assistant) who broke it down for me: If you major in criminal justice and per chance don’t make it to law school, what are you going to do with that degree in Criminal Justice. Interesting advice. Needless to say I didn’t major in criminal justice.
–2. I then wanted to be a big-time magazine editor. But that is kind of hard when you don’t have the write contacts. Very Hard.
–3. I wanted to go teach English in Korea or China or Japan or some foreign country.
None of these things seem like things I really want to do now. So now I need to think of some new adult dreams. Its really hard to dream when reality is ice grilling you. Why is this so?
