Wearing it Out (Video)

         When I played sports in college I was on the track team and walked on to the basketball team at +AquinasCollege. I took a second year premed curriculum, did two sports, and worked 20 hours a week at a retail men's clothing store, +EXPRESS. Back then it was called Structure. I know I could do it then, and I wasn't afraid to do it in the future. How about 20 years from that time?
          I can tell when I am "sucking wind". I start looking for motivational stuff. It is 9PM on the East Coast, and I am just starting my third job. I am a grad student, as well as teaching, and tutoring; but I wouldn't have it any other way, because I love my day. Also, throw in trying to help raise two step sons, and my life is even better. I am not kidding. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am so optimistic it would make my old self disgusted. In fact, I just gave a pump up speech to a young student who feels overwhelmed. I feel like the new Tony Robbins. (I wish you the best, Nye.)
          However, I sit here tired. I sit here apathetic towards the work that will take me to the next level, although the level I am at is good, in fact, tremendous compared to where I started. My wife knows this feeling as she isn't done from her third job today. Yes, I will get milk, honey.
          The video, thank you +MotivationGrid, will abbreviate and summarize my story, but only because I've got to go to work!!
