To The Moon, Alice.

*blows off the dust* I haven’t blogged in 2012 over here. Wow. (I’ve been focused on posting a daily quote and daily photo over at

I could say that I have been extremely busy, and It would be true, but I looked back and I have written 14 other posts about being busy in life.

So I won’t go on with that. What I’ve been concerned with of late, besides school, work, and other miscellany, is reaching for things larger than myself.

Meaning: I Like To Shoot For The Moon

Now, before you go and cover your eyes, let me explain. Growing up, I used to thrive on mediocrity; in school, in life, wherever I was given the opportunity to “meet expectations,” I did. I did not try, I didn’t stress – I was confident with half-assed.

I don’t know when it changed. At some point in my life I became interested in taking on the big stuff. I decided that I didn’t want to be mediocre, I didn’t want to blend into the world, so I kept reaching for the bigger dreams, the long-shots, the things I probably didn’t have a real shot at in the first place. Sometimes you succeed, sometimes you do not.


Yes, I have been busy and I have been challenged. Sometimes, I’m even beyond my own limits, I rarely give up. At the end of the day, I feel fulfilled. Sometimes, I feel tired, too. I don’t always get to the goal I intended, but I always give it as much effort as I am able.

And that, my friends, is all you can do. It is enough.
