For some reason, I find the idea and the ability to sacrifice something today, in order to gain something tomorrow powerful. I don’t yet know whether I am good at it or not — my best guess is that it depends on my outlook at the moment.




I usually don’t admit to habits or dependencies, but I love coffee. It has taken me a few years to admit this to myself. That clear-headed feeling you get after chugging through a large Americano at just the right temperature is indescribable. The funny thing is that I forget this every few weeks and suffer through terrible slump days not resorting to this simple remedy.
