"Sure I’m growing in my style, but the seed form of a plant isn’t any less important than the fully bloomed version. Without the seed, no flower would even exist and in that way the seed is almost more beautiful. Within the tiny seed is packed everything it needs to grow. Maybe it’ll be a little marigold, maybe it’ll be a six foot tall sunflower. It might even end up as a 200 foot tall cedar. And in the end some people might find sunflowers more beautiful than cedars anyway. I think it’s a waste of time to feel embarrassed about past style choices. It would be so ridiculous for a flower to be embarrassed that it used to be a seed."

Nails and spikes are everywhere. Clearance of two feet. 100F. Crawl off of the wooden beams and you’ll drop fifteen feet through the ceiling. No pressure. 😁

I worked 13 hours straight yesterday on a cabling job, which meant my brother and I mapped out how 1400 feet cable will run through ceilings and walls, and then installed it. The whole process is physically-intensive, but also requires a fair bit of technical/engineering knowledge. It was a really satisfying job, but it was shocking to see how I became invisible to the white-collar workers the moment they saw me covered in drywall dust and sweat. In my head I knew that most people look down on manual laborers, but another to experience it first hand.

Dear Body,

If I work for 13 hours, I want to be sore for 13 hours. No more. OK?

I know people should make their own mistakes and can’t always learn from others, but trust me on this one. Normal glasses are not suitable protection from fiberglass.

A map of where I applied to college.

9 universities in America, 2 in the Netherlands, 5 different majors, 3 months of work.

"That’s why high school, or a crappy job, or any other restrictive circumstance can be dangerous: They make dreams too painful to bear. To avoid longing, we hunker down, wait, and resolve to just survive. Great art becomes a reminder of the art you want to be making, and of the gigantic world outside of your small, seemingly inescapable one. We hide from great things because they inspire us, and in this state, inspiration hurts. I tell myself that I’ll have time to be inspired after high school. In the meantime, I keep shelving books, stacking records, and collecting notes and song ideas. By squirreling things away in lists, I ensure that I’ll always have more to enjoy, to feel proud of and to love—as soon as my waiting period ends."
