break away.

Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, everyday, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.

— Christopher Morley

In essence, this has been my constant objective every summer. Not so I'd be known as someone who's concentrated on being different all the damn time, because I'm not, and I really don't care about accolades compared to my actual personal growth. I take the time out to reflect about certain curiosities, learn new things, read many books, meet new people, get stronger physically and mentally and immerse myself in things so I can come out to be someone better each year. I'm hoping for a more productive summer more than ever.

I don't see life as just one straight line. It's a crazy doodle filled with its own twists and turns but nonetheless, it's still moving.
