The 54th Deadline: Drained

The 54th Deadline: Drained

Gosh, if I could have a single superpower, it would entail being struck by “lightning” nonstop. “Lightning” is my code name for inspiration. In other words, I would feel inspired always. And in all honesty, this would be an incredible power to have for a variety of reasons. No longer would I need to draw inspiration in a pinch, as the ideas could just pop into my head instantly. The sense of fluctuating motivation would be nonexistent as the mind…

The 54th Deadline: Hope

The 54th Deadline: Hope

“The worst days make me wonder why I keep going. And then, I remember that I believe in hope.” As you can see, I decided to change the tagline again. “Hope is my catalyst.” The previous “Progress is perseverance” tagline was good for me as well. But lately, I just feel like I have been regressing again. I just think I am caught in another slump. It is a weaker slump, but it is a slump nonetheless. I just feel…
