I just watched How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and it reminded me of my
Today I began doing what I usually do on early Decembers, not studying and making my New Year resolution. My yearly bullshit. My too-high expectations. My getting-lower-and-lower standard. So let's talk about that, shall we?
I recently told my cousin that he should dream while he's young, because the older you get the bigger reality grows and it'll eat up space for dreams. The question for us old folks are, is that a reason to stop dreaming? When must one stop dreaming? When I got into a major that can't get me the job I want, is that it? I talk about my plans a lot, which most of them I fail to do, I wonder if people have been laughing at them. If they do, are they laughing at my failure of fulfilling them or at the attempts I've made oh-so-naively? Is one a bigger joke by having dreams or by not having any plans?
I think it's sad when you have no idea what to do with your future.
But these days, all it takes is to call someone "ambitious" to stop them from dreaming, and people start calling those non-dreamers people who "don't give a shit" making them sound like one hell of a badass. Then again, read my first paragraph and you start questioning my stance. I'm the girl who makes suicidal poems and listens to grungy music advocating for dreams.
So how does this work now? Dreams, plans, resolutions, are they still relevant?
