so after a year of trying to get a job i get 2, one at loblaws and one teaching swimming lessons. and when i tell my grandmother and my uncle, they hug me and lovingly tell me “its because i was praying for you”.
“Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”—John Green, Looking for Alaska (via diiamondintherough)
