You have to believe in yourself. Well, not just in yourself, but in the ability to be able to complete something, anything. If you can think about it that way, it becomes less about you and more about an idea that anyone can apply should they be afforded the opportunity. Opportunity is a big deal… We’re not all allowed to do the same things. That’s just a fact; we’re all equal, but we’re  n o t  all treated equal.

I’ve had this following thought pop up a lot lately: we all have important roles in this life. I read someone’s opinion about students not being taught to be leaders while in school, but what is a leader? I think the idea of what constitutes a leader has been … Well … Idealized.

More on this later though.

I’m happy.

There’s a long running debate of whether people are or aren’t inherently evil. I think there is a different question that should be addressed: do you have to be evil to do evil things?
