Time to Say Hello




These pictures are from behind my house.

I've been told that I can do it all, and this week I did it. I did the three things that make me happy: I performed in an improv show, finally got started on a little vintage shop, and wrote about art. Somehow I feel I did them all badly and I'm stressed as hell. 

We only like axioms when they feel good, so I'm trying to remember one a former teacher of mine said nearly ten years ago—and I've yet to have anyone else echo the sentiment: 

"Stress, fatigue, and uncertainty are cardinal elements of happiness."

When people say you're killing it, they forget how much it feels like dying.

Why does that make me want to laugh out loud and sob myself to sleep simultaneously. Feeling like I've done nothing productive in my 20 or so years of life, but I'm a chronic over-thinker. I wish I had the courage time funds to just GO DO, but these are also excuses... I dunno. Congrats on achieving your goals man and best of luck with your shop!
