I remember ever since I was 15 I had experimented with all sorts of projects from scratch. Throughout highschool I didn’t pay attention to the college + degree = job equation. I knew by the time college came around that I wasn’t going to be working corporate, and instead I was going to jump straight into a business venture right out of college. In fact one of my biggest role models was my dad who remained self-employed for over 30 years.
Ironically after college I landed myself in the corporate finance industry. My job is as rewarding as it is mentally taxing. Hustle is single best word that describes what I do. The environment is fast-paced, the pay is generous, and the potential to grow is near limitless. Lately I’ve even seriously considered doing what it takes to enroll into one of my dream schools for an MBA.
Wait though, isn’t this what I didn’t want to do?
I’m scared to admit I that might be losing the drive to pursue an entrepreneurship career. It’s like being offered your favorite chocolate flavored ice cream but then suddenly discovering an affinity for vanilla, and you’re not allowed to have both.
My dad had always advised me to be envisioning where I want to be 5 years down the line, because that’s how much time passes by in a blink of an eye. I’m just starting to realize how true that statement is.
The G-Shock Aviation series. One of the best outdoor watches I’ve ever owned. This watch is built like a tank; I’ve sported it while hiking, swimming, lifting weights and it’s still without a scratch, even with a titanium band. 10/10 would wear again.

I’ve had my eye on this one for awhile…soon!
I swear this is the third time I’ve restarted on tumblr. I can’t seem to find the motivation to use Tumblr by just posting pictures all the time, so I figure this time around I’ll make it into a personal blog. I’ll do my best to stay committed.
In other news, there’s a quote that’s been sticking with me as of late:
"I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes.”
― Charles R. Swindoll
This is so insanely true. I’ve definitely been going through some rough patches, but consistent training of the heart and mind with courage is the key.
