a bright eyed choke on ambition / by lana pribic

It is starting to become dangerously clear to me that all of these incredible things happen to you when you do what you love. I mean, its not that simple. You can't just do what you love, you have to make sure that you're damn good at it. Make sure you so damn good at it and that you allow yourself to grow from it. And that takes a lot of work, dedication, and salt water. 

Our passions, as unexplainable as they are at times, are the vessel for excellence. 

These are the kind of thoughts that have been floating around in my brain lately. Also, things mentioned here.

For the past month or so, 80% of the words that have formed in my brain and left my mouth have been somehow related to school and my studies. To be honest, it's actually been pretty toxic. Finals are over now, and my brain is getting adjusted to filling up the space that has been accustomed to stress with something else. I've been dealing with it by doing things like watching the entire GIRLS series in like, two days flat and going out for lunch everyday and finally cleaning my room. It's all a big process that makes me damn myself for taking things so seriously all the time, but at the same time this is one of the things that I love most about myself. Let's just say that when I am into something, I am into it all the way. 

I'm a head-case if I don't keep moving, but my head hurts if i don't sit still. It's an itch that I'll never stop scratching, it's a hole that I'll never quite fill. - EP
