This birthday was pretty uneventful. I spent most of the day watching football. I’m so proud of the Texans for winning the incredible game against the Redskins, but even more ecstatic that the Cowboys are starting 0-2. Looking forward to the Saints’ game against the 49ers tomorrow! 🙂 With exams around the corner, I tried to cram in some studying time, but as usual, my feeble attempts were overwhelmed by the aforementioned football games.
As far as reflecting on the past year, I suppose one could read all my MS1 posts since that’s where most of my time went, but as a person, it’s hard to capture how I’ve regressed with mere words. The last year has been very humbling, but in all honesty, a bit depressing as I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m average in every conceivable regard. It’s great to have classmates who make me look like dirt – gives me a mark to work towards and a sense of awe that these are my colleagues. But in the grand scheme of things, I have a greed for self-improvement. Getting smarter, getting stronger, getting to be less socially awkward and more confident… these are some of my goals for the coming year. We’ll see how far I get.
