I absolutely adore many of the posts on Thought Catalog, but this one takes the cake. Ryan says everything I’d like to say, and he does it better.
Highlights include: “Growing up I couldn’t imagine doing anything else, which I think is true of most writers. Because, besides putting words down on a page, we’re pretty much a defective bunch.”
And most importantly:
“No one is where they want to be after college. That’s pretty much a given. Even the ones who seemingly luck out with an amazing job and brag to Facebook about it aren’t exactly content. But here’s where the whole “following your dreams” thing comes into play. You can’t be afraid to go after what you want.“
Brilliant (and short) read. Do yourself a favor and go check it out.
