I love when people tell me stories, or read to me. That’s probably why my amazing Mom read me bedtime stories even into my high school years hehe. Reading was always an important thing we shared haha. It’s nice to just listen to the sound of someone’s voice sometimes : )

The Last Lecture

My wonderful Mother linked me to this awesome talk sometimes called “The Last Lecture”. It is a very charming and  motivational speech by Randy Pausch about achieving childhood dreams.

For me the highlight was when he says, “When you’re screwing up and no one is saying anything anymore, it means they gave up.” It is so true. Sometimes criticism can be hard to accept but it’s important to remember people wouldn’t think about you or talk about you if they didn’t care for you. Without further ado…
