THE GREATEST LESLIE LINE
Dusted this one off the shelves tonight and gave it another read through.
Nick gave this to me as a graduation present, back when leaving university was a bittersweet affair. He promised me then, despite my fear and apprehension, that great things would come. I tried my best to believe him.
It didn’t start off great. But it got better. Slowly and gradually, I peddled my way through the setbacks and hiccups, through the hoorays and woos, and on towards a future I’m comfortable venturing into.
The year is far from over, but 2014 has already etched itself into a year of growth for me. I’ve grown both on a personal and professional level. I’ve met such fascinating people, worked on such interesting projects and visited such extraordinary places.
And tonight, as I look back at past me, a year ago now, asking myself then if I would succeed, I borrow the words of Dr. Seuss to answer the question that lingered the night of my graduation.
Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
Lisa Simpson, The Simpsons, 1991.
Naturally, I keep coming back to my parents’ house just so that I can play The Sims on the PC.
Oh, and to see them too.
