Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.
I’m at work right now and I don’t know exactly where my life is going if I stay on this path. I need something to pursue and I need passion. I’m supposed to be creating, and I’m supposed to be putting something out into the world, and I’m not. I’m stuck here for 8 hours a day and nothing’s getting done and time’s moving too fast. I need something better. Thank you.
