Ok, my friends, this is my last post for We’re Not Idiots. As we bid our final farewell, I find myself asking these questions: Would my posts  have gained a stronger following if I was more committed to Twitter? Could I have applied for that internship if I was better versed in html coding? Should I have bought the rights to this blog?

Nonsense. I remember something different; I remember being confronted with tough choices and, when weighing positives and negatives, thinking: how much is this going to hurt? In most cases, the pain for gain was easy enough to equate. For the independence afforded by an apartment, I had to suck it up and pull double shifts waiting tables. The demands of college courses required the discipline to sometimes forgo the lure of social joviality. The lure of social joviality sometimes resulted in the agony of hangovers and/or sleep deprivation that was compounded by the looming responsibilities of school and work.
