Words I live by. If you know me at all you know that when I get an idea in my head there is no stopping me from making it happen. This quote by Ayn Rand felt like it was meant for me the first time I read it.
Now I can not yet compare to Ms. Rand. I have not had a book published *cough* yet. And when I do I don’t think it will be nearly as historic as The Fountainhead was, but a girl can dream. Literary success aside, I admire Ms. Rand for her attitude towards life.
When we were kids most of us had to ask a parent or guardian permission to do things. Either that or get grounded often. I was in the middle of these. I was a good kid (and no I’m not just saying that I promise) but I challenged my mother to try and stop me at every turn.
I wanted to go far from home for college. My mother had no intention of making that easy. But I navigated the FAFSA and the applications and loans and orientations and I made it out. I wanted to stay in DC after I graduated but couldn’t afford to do so unless I got a job, and fast. 1 week after graduation I was officially employed. Allie and I wanted to start this blog, and look at us now!
Now if only I could talk those pesky police officers hidden on the highway not to stop me I’d be set. Just kidding, kind of.
