Call it lame, call it what you will, I could give a shit. Tonight I logged into Facebook for the first time in years. I spent hours seeing what friends long past have been doing with their lives, seeing what they've accomplished, if only brief glimpses of it, and asking myself the eternal question. What have I done that's been worthwhile? I've spent most of my life trying to stay out of conflict, mostly because of my race, and trying to become a master in my line of work, the culinary arts. I'm still young at 25, but I wonder if I would've been better off spending the better part of my youth traveling the world, or branching out into things that didn't involve working or cooking. Self-doubt is more common that one would think, and in the safety of anonymity I figure this would be a great place to air any insecurities you may have, young or old, if only to add perspective. FOCUS: Are you confident that you've accomplished what you've wanted, or have you fallen short? Why? NOTE: Keep the red dots and the bullshit to a minimum. Trying to convince someone to step up and smarten up is a good thing, but being a piece of shit while doing so is not. Tact is a skill often overlooked when searching for solutions.
