“How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success?”

Attempts 1, 2, and 3 at university are the reason not only for how I have my act together now as an adult, but that attempt 4 is going so well. That trinity of failure hung as an albatross around my neck for over half a decade, and looked like it would for the rest of my life. In the space of a little over a year, it emerged as the groundwork for my ascension to who knows what future, but what looks right now to be a bright one. I don’t like to toot my own horn, but I turned three Ls into a massive W with this one. Which, now I look at the letter W I can see a way you could literally make it out of 3 uppercase Ls so, I guess there’s a tattoo design in that somewhere.

All in all, not much new to report other than I am in a good place, writing goofy stuff just for me, and enjoying chipping away at my edits while I wrap up the first year of uni. Oh and I finally made it to Petalburg Forest in Emerald 22 hours in. I play these games sloooooooowly.
