On Repeat

The definition of success -
Learning how to define one's own happiness--
-The worth of time, of money

A professor of mine once said, in regards to art making, "You learn to live with the ambiguity". I think this is, however, applicable to all of life. At an old 23 and a young 25, we are sifting through our idealism, our wishes and wants, but much more importantly, our needs. We can cherry pick houses with porches and idealize unknown golden careers, wish for station wagons - really those are just minute details to make the future seem concrete, safe even. The road to self fulfillment however, is rarely safe and generally unpaved. And now - this recently graduated limbo, this time of penance for past and present laziness - might be tomorrow, but is not the future.
