In fact, if there ever was an occupation that's a total opposite of motivational speakers, I will probably be one of the best at doing that. If we lived in a world where everyone can understand what others think, I would get hit in the face. A lot. My thoughts are rude and my words sarcastic. I just can't seem to emphatize with what other people go through. But for once, I want to motivate people. I want to move people only using words. So here it is, my motivational post.

Fortitude is never my strong point. Actually, I have always been a lazy person. In winter, I skipped college classes because it was very cold. In summer, I skipped classes because it was hot. And in spring and fall, I skipped classes because I wanted to play games instead. In those three of my college years, I accomplished nothing but eat and sleep.

Meanwhile a friend of my friend actually managed to establish his own business in his first year of college. In fact, two years after graduating, he had already founded 6 startup companies (yeah you read that right. Six, as in 1+1+1+1+1+1), all the while I was sleeping my ass off. It occurred to me that I needed to change. I deeply wished that I had used my time a little bit wiser. Maybe, just maybe, if I had used my time a little bit wiser, I would have a business to call my own now.

It's never too late to start what you want to do and to be what you might have been. If you like singing, go for it. Start recording your singing and upload them to Youtube. If you like writing, start writing a blog. If you like having sex, go to Japan and apply to be a porn star.

You know, my dad used to want me to be a doctor. Like, someone who uses a fucking knife to dissect a patient. After finding out that I have zero tolerance to blood and biology in general, he then wanted me to be a fucking professor. Like, a PHd. It was then when I realized that him wanting me to be something has nothing to do with me. It has everything to do with him. Me being a doctor or being a PHd means so much to him that he can brag to everyone about his genius child.

Fuck that.

Life is too short to do what your parents tell you to do. You only live once and you won't relinquish the years spent to satisfy your parents. I'm not saying that you shouldn't love your parents and satisfy them. All I'm saying is that if your parents truly love you, they will stop being a prick and let you live your life (unless, of course, you want to be a Nicki Minaj, then I fully support whatever your parents want you to be).
