Epiphany after writing a 7,500-word research proposal

I love working, and moving to Auckland didn’t change that. I thought I’d get lazy in a place where nothing is rushed. The thing is, after the newness has faded, I’m back to the most genuine form of who I am. I’m a go getter and I work my ass off to get what I want. I don’t just sit there and wait for success to come to me. I don’t make excuses for my incompetence, but I also take pride in my accomplishments. I’m my hardest critic and my biggest fan. Life can be tough, but I’m tougher, and that is why I know I will put a dent to the universe one day.
