there are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning and yearning.


It has always been my dream to write. Specifically, to become a novelist. This is an art form I dream about, struggle with, and constantly work on. My dreams were vague until I finished my internship just before Christmas. It was that experience that made me realize just how badly I wanted to write professionally.

Suddenly, things feel like they are starting to come together in my life. The last couple of weeks have been hectic - wonderful, but hectic. I've been working and attempting to maintain some sort of social life, I've been writing non-stop as I complete freelance work, and have been editing the second draft of my novel.

There is another busy week ahead of me.

I am determined to balance everything. I want to make the most of every moment and each opportunity.

Finally, I see the future I want for myself. I plan to go after it with everything I am.
