It's so hard to find ambitious people in this world.
It seems that so many people I meet just expect things to be handed to them. In this life, you need to work. Unless you are extremely privileged, you need to put effort in to get results. Every experience, positive or negative, leads you to something greater and you need to take advantage of that. You have to jump on every opportunity. I think I’m realizing that there will never be a point in my life where I’ll be able to rely on other people to be as ambitious as I am. I will always put in more than I get back and I will always care about the details more than those around me. But because of that, people like me will be the successful ones and people who wait for others to do things for them will be working for me. Actually they won’t be because I would never hire someone who doesn’t take initiative. But you get what I’m saying.
im excited for amazon to start sending packages out by drone because now i can start carrying a sling shot around with me and knock them out of the air and get a present and it will be just like animal crossing
I’m so happy I took humanities this year and have the teachers I do. They’re both such great inspirations. I’m also so blessed to work with them both building the set for the musical and the fall play. Every little thing they say to me, and every little thing they do make me feel like I’m such a great person. They make me feel like a vital part in our work. Deep down I know I am, but it helps when the two men that you look up to so greatly reinforce that in your mind so often.
Today Mr. Petrushun took one of my cupcake business cards and had this look on his face like “I am so proud of you.” And that means a lot being that I’ve know him since freshman year and he’s seen all I’ve overcome and how much I’ve grown.
Mr. Kamps is more out-front in his faith in me. Literally every time we meet for crew or talk about student council ideas or whatever it may be, he’ll drop little comments like “you’re a really great problem solver” or “I trust you with this.”
Little things like this really mean a lot to me because I always feel like I don’t get the recognition I work so hard to receive.
If it wasn’t 12:30 am I would absolutely go into how much I look up to them as people. Kamps has never smoked weed or been belligerently drunk. He’s adopting a baby from Uganda. Petrushun got kicked out of college and changed his major but still graduated and did all this while dealing with an alcoholic, suicidal brother. And he’s still a great person.
