I know a good amount of people who can talk. Talk like they know everything, like they’re the shit, like they do all this and been on that. Talk like they’re actually going to do something, like they’re not only ON the ball, they own the ball and there is only room for one person on that ball and…
your mother arrives to your apartment only to find you in a drunken stupor from the frigid misadventures of the night before, in which you misplaced your phone that she called numerous times prior to your stumbling about the streets, south of the james, for several hours until city police officers escorted you home and out of the cold.

As subjective as it sounds, I may be on to something. If I recall correctly, there’s a quote that goes, “never regret anything in life because at one time it is exactly what you wanted.” Upon reading it, I analyzed the motivational speeches I have given myself and how I’ve realized much of that has come true. Perhaps this is deja vu. It’s almost hard to believe that the places where you predicted you would be, the actions you would take, the happenings in your life, how you react to the happenings in your life or how you would like to, and who you view yourself as are all a product of your thinking. There’s this belief that if a person thinks great things and they will happen. The theory behind it is that a person’s thoughts become their words and actions. I have my own interpretation of this. Words such as “maybe”, “perhaps”, and “hopefully” aren’t definitive enough. They’re ‘almost’ words; words in passing. I think phrases such as “I will”, “I am” and “I have” are not only uplifting phrases but are necessary ones. These phrases bring security.
Perhaps this is a realistic way of achieving your goals. Perhaps it isn’t. Decide for yourself but before you write it off suspend your disbelief.

I swear, every since I’ve come to this school, I feel like the norm is to portray an intense, existentialist, philosophical disposition of being misunderstood youth who don’t give a damn, unless you’re just like this, or that.
