“Great things never come from comfort zones.”

Saw it on a website today, kind of makes sense for just about everything I’m doing right now. If you feel comfortable all the time, you’re doing life wrong.

I’ve gotten into a funk lately of just doing whatever was easiest, or caused the least amount of problems. After the amount of trouble caused by last semester, I was really just out of energy to do anything that took some kind of effort. But there are a lot of things that I want to do now, and it is going to take a lot of stepping outside the comfort box to make a reality. I’ve already taken a step by submitting my first internship application yesterday. It’s outside of my major choice of study, but I have a lot of experience from all of my odd jobs I’ve worked over the years. Hopefully someone will look more into my experience and less into my education. Quite frankly I think my work experience would actually make it harder to get a job in my major area because I look like I’m completely unqualified to be a teacher. Oh well.

I’m crossing my fingers extra tight. That’s just one of many applications that will go out over the next few months.

Wish me luck!

Stranger than Fiction

When you think about it, our lives are 90% fiction; the lies we tell, our dreams for the future, or misrepresentations of the past, the stories you hear on the news, the fabrications we use to make our boring lives sound more interesting than they actually are. Most of what we put out into the world has very little truth to it. Truth is narrowed down to numbers and indisputable facts. The rest is just fiction.
