sleepy girl

i've been thinking recently about how much i appreciate being well-rounded these days. it used to bother me that i wasn't particularly good at any one thing specifically. i despised my unremarkability.

but, now, it seems so right. if i wanted to be, i could be self-sufficient in almost all aspects of my life. i don't need to regurgitate the thoughts and ideas of other people because i'm intelligent enough to reason things out on my own.

and as much as i hated being mediocre in high school (as mediocre as you can be in the honors program), i'm so very glad that i did't have to sacrifice literary style for deductive reasoning.

i'm feeling very balanced anymore and it's quite nice. and what's even better is that, even in this balanced scale, i still hold more weight than most people.

i used to feel so inferior. to everyone. for everything.

thank god for self realization.

Yeah, I've always thought you were versatile.
I kind of wish I was more well-rounded, but balance really isn't my thing.

i like the mood of your posts lately...im happy for you.

i also think it's better to be good at many things than great at one. i like knowing all sorts of things, it's boring if you're only knowledgable in one area.

go well-roundedness!

haha, that reminds me of a shirt my friend had. "West Lafayette.... Home of the well rounded student." On the back it had a bunch of different beers aranged in a circle. Thats probably not the response your looking for, but I'm a little tipsy now; therefore, its more than appropriate to me.
