As my undergrad education comes to a close, the prospect of sorting out my year off looms as a most daunting task. I take comfort in connecting with those who share my sentiments. Especially my struggle to find a balance in pursuing creative endeavors while earning a living. There is always that second voice that says," Be pragmatic." But lately I've sought salvage in this quote:
The soul raised over passion beholds identity and eternal causation, perceives the self-existence of Truth and Right, and calms itself with knowing that all things go well.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self Reliance.
