If it doesn’t work out the way I wanted, there is always something to learn from it. Sometimes jumping off the cliff can be freeing and exhilarating, even if it scares me half to death. Still, on occasion, I’ve needed a bit of a push..

  5. Yeah, except I’ve concluded that sometimes the absolute boredom of a life where nothing ever happens, ever is worse than death.
