Penelope and life decisions

1. it's snowing today.
2. i have to be dressed up for a meeting....
3. i have to walk home. did I mention it's snowing?
4. it's very nearly April.  whaaaaat?
5. my mom reminded me i haven't had a blog post in a while... my bad.

 So yesterday was somewhat of a miracle. 
I was in what my roommate calls "Quarter-life crisis"
Which is like mid-life... only quarter! Is that normal?
But anyways I was trying to decide what I want to do with my life. 
Because I had chosen a direction... and let's face it.
It wasn't working out for me. 
I had a panic when I realized I was going to spend my education
kicking against the pricks and doing something that I was bad at, and didn't love.
Then a professor spoke these words of wisdom....
"you that don't know your major... you are the lucky ones"
[whaaaat? who ever said that in the classroom before?]
"passion is excellence"
[hello! i need to find some passion]

sometimes I think days are meant just for me :)

"Everybody is a genius. 
But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, 
it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."
— Albert Einstein
[moral of this quote... figure out what you were meant to do]

And just in case you wanted to know whether or not you should buy that movie I talked about...
you should.
penelope is darling :) 
in fact, I named my bike Penelope.


You can buy it here.

Amazon is a beautiful thing.
