Loved this one. Felt a powerful energy in your writing. Keep going
I wonder if they will put that meme on billboards...
Loved reading about this defining moment! And thanks for the mention.
This piece resonates to a scary extent.
"Two large coffees may have been a bit excessive but it was miserable outside and I was inspecting the foundation of my epistemology. I wrote quote after quote in my notebook. A new perspective that I had never considered."
I would always do this senior year of college. Go to campus without my phone all morning, pound coffee, read (Taleb often) and write in a journal. And feel so free and focused. Just a year before leaving my phone at home would be unthinkable. Also when I first read the term "Intellectual yet idiot" my stomach sank because I was like damn that sounds like me.
