Quote Of The Day

On my Google Homepage I have rarely read Quote of the Day that appears every day. Some days I read it, others I forget. It is usually nothing outrageous, or anything relative to the way I'm feeling, but today's was.

You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what you're doing is work or play.
- Warren Beatty

Right now everything I do seems like work, and no play. Well, there is play, but it's only found in the procrastination from the work. They are not synonymous. I am once again thinking of ditching the architecture. The feeling of being a quitter, giving into my laziness, wasting my intelligence, or whatever that feeling is, still remains, because I know I can do architecture, but quite frankly I don't know if want to. I want something that is new, something that will be exciting everyday, something that I will always enjoy doing, not just most of the time. I don't see that future right now. I think my procrastination problem would disappear if I actually wanted to do the work I'm given. If I enjoyed it, I wouldn't find excuses to do other things. I can do architecture, play it safe, and not enjoy the ride, and make it work for my life, or I can do something else that I would enjoy completely, not knowing if it would work, or if I'd fall on my face, and be happy. So, I don't know where this is going, but if I make a change in the near future, don't be too surprised.

I wanna have the same last dream again
The one where I wake up and I'm alive
Just as the four walls close me within
My eyes are open up with pure sunlight
I'm the first to know

But you're supposed to design Matt and my dream house :). I understand though, it was one of the toughest decisions to switch to accounting but with lots of prayers, tears, and stress, I made the right decision....even though my job right now isn't my 'dream' job. But that will come one day. (hopefully) GL
