We do well when applying a structure – those imposed by you and those imposed by others. Right now the libertarian in you will be shouting me down. I am all for live and let live but if you are in pursuit of a career, there’s no way around it. Applying a Structure tames your wild side. It tames it so that you can be productive when you need to be and let loose when it’s time to do so.
Granted, pride is often used as a negative. Making up part of the 7 deadly sins in Christianity and just getting an all-around bad rep among most religions. Even folk tales rarely look kindly on it. It’s always about modesty and humility – but are they really at odds?
Time to close those chapters. You finished your exams, that stress ball is now digested and out of the system. You are ready to start your new beginnings. Or you are no longer a student and are like I once was; waiting for the New Years to apply any changes that you have already attempted in the previous five New Years.
The death of curiosity has become more of a thing as of recently. Since working as a copywriter my general wonderments about the world around me, particularly technologically based ones have died.

You know when you are watching a really boring documentary because the remote is too far away? So you start to wonder random things like ‘how does a tv actually work?’ Like seriously, how do you do that? You don’t quite care enough to google it because you’ll know it’ll ramble on about physics but you still wonder. I now want to shoot myself in the head before a curiosity arises because I’ve had to study explanations of questions I never asked. Death of curiosity indeed.
You ultimately need to play the game. You are presented with quite literally a limitless amount of routes you can take. Much like the butterfly effect, each action trickles into the next. So, something small like having your lunch ten minutes later can affect your tomorrows.
