The 54th Deadline: Chasing Shadows

The 54th Deadline: Chasing Shadows

During a time, I obsessed with chasing the “shadows” of others I once knew – friends, peers and whatnot. To me, this pursuit meant life itself. As a kid, I thought of life as a race measured in increments of “success.” Granted, I had never been that competitive as a child. I wish I showed more zeal in coming out on top. I definitely would be further along by now. After college, when a lot of my college friends and peers…

The 54th Deadline: Talent

The 54th Deadline: Talent

“We are all respectively great at something, so have a conversation with others because talent talks.” I firmly believe we are all destined in this universe to be “good” at something, whatever that may be. It can be singing, dancing, writing or whatever. I do not think everyone is meant to be good at everything, as this logically does not make sense. We all are supposed to specialize if you use this train of thought. And by specializing, I mean…

The 54th Deadline: Composure

The 54th Deadline: Composure

“People who can keep their cool no matter what can persevere through anything.” As I have grown older, I have realized I have always lacked a lot of composure as a person. Composure is something I wish I had more of, in abundance, especially when life forced me into a corner and made me rethink everything. The fact is, if I could have composed myself a lot better as my world was falling apart, everything would have certainly played out differently….

The 54th Deadline: Rekindling

The 54th Deadline: Rekindling

“To stoke that particular flame within the very soul requires just a spark of passion.” Long ago, I legitimately had a passion for one particular thing on my mind: writing. When it came time to lock in an intended major at my university, I chose journalism as my first choice. A lot of people scoffed and mocked me for my choice in major back when I started college. People questioned my decision. Rightfully so, journalism wasn’t a sexy major choice. By…

The 54th Deadline: Rest Required

The 54th Deadline: Rest Required

Note: I am debating as to whether I should keep this random line box in future posts. It was just something I did a long time ago to separate the first picture and the body of the blog post’s text, but I don’t know if I should keep making it. The 54th Deadline: Rest is just a necessary step toward recovering for another day. Hi. I hope the holidays have been going well for you all. For me, I haven’t had…

The 54th Deadline: Pressure

The 54th Deadline: Pressure

The 54th Deadline: Life often forces some pressure your way to encourage immediate action. More than five years ago, I was a loser by all means. I never would admit to it back then, but one could call me that now and I wouldn’t get mad at them for it. That’s what I was. A loser. A bonafide loser. But that doesn’t mean I had to remain one. That’s the key. You can always change. I was a new college…
