You lost all interest in this world. You were disappointed and discouraged, and lost interest in everything. So you abandoned your physical body. You went to world apart and you’re living a different kind of life there. In a world that’s inside you.
                                                               – Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
           

Keep on going

It is possible to go on, no matter how impossible it seems, and in time, grief lessens. It may not ever go away completely, but after a while it’s not overwhelming.

Youths are passed through schools that don’t teach, then forced to search for jobs that don’t exist and finally left stranded in the street to stare at the glamorous lives.

Fading Generation

We’re not the Faster-than-the-Speed-of-Light generation anymore. We’re not even the Next-new-thing generation. We’re are the Soon-to-be-obsolete-kids and we’ve crowded in here to hide from the future and the past. We know what’s up – the future looms straight ahead like a black wrought-iron gate and the past is charging after us like a badass Doberman, only this one doesn’t have any letup in him.

Failure is part of life

What’s the worst thing that will happen if you go after a dream? You’ll fail? So you fail. Like that doesn’t happen all the time anyway. So you fail at something that counts. There’s a concept.

How old were you when you decided failure was a bad thing? When we’re young, we’re taught that accomplishment includes making mistakes, and failure is just a natural part of a process.
