Don’t slow down (redux)

Last night I was looking through old posts — mainly wandering through my past relationships (or lack thereof).  Then I stumbled across one I wrote a year ago today… Don’t Slow Down.

A year ago I started working on my writing portfolio again at Story Studio.  Walking home from my first class, I was listening to Matt & Kim and “Don’t slow down” came on.  I had an epiphany — don’t slow down.  Run at life full speed and head first.

A year later, I’d say I’m at the same point.  Go full steam, all in.  But now I’m at the Portfolio School and am focusing on design.  And I’ve got to commit to it.

Over this past year, between Story Studio to Portfolio school, I let a lot slow me down.  Leaving and losing jobs, the painful deterioration of a “friendship”, and a mess of a medical condition that I’m still dealing with.  I got bogged down and there were days I wanted to just quit it all.

I can’t let thins keep me from my goals and dreams.  Whether it’s my health, lack of finances, or even my desire to get caught up in the distraction of an attractive guy (though, well, I wouldn’t be totally upset if one wanted to try to distract me)… Regardless.  I’m going to keep pressing on.  There’s still a lot of unknowns.  I don’t know when or even how I can afford my surgery.  Hell, I don’t even know how I’m going to pay for school next month.  But I can’t let these things stop me.  I won’t let them.  I just won’t.
