Song of the Day: Macklemore - Ten Thousand Hours
Okay, I read Malcolm Gladwell's 'Outliers' and just got depressed. Well, let me rephrase. I read about half of it, twice, and then got depressed. Ten thousand hours is a really long time when you're still looking at logging hour 90. ....for those who may not know, Malcolm Gladwell found that 10,000 hours of work/practice is the difference between mediocre and great/genius. Macklemore, who obviously put in the time, was inspired to write an amazing song about it. Not that I have one thing in mind that I want to be amazing at, but that almost makes it worse! Hahaha, oh well, maybe I'll pick up the book again, and just keep plugging away at everything until I find that one thing I want to focus on.
Wow, I apparently am listening to my music really loudly. I just took a break from writing to grab coffee and a yogurt and took my earbuds out (because I think it's rude to interact with people while still wearing them) and realized that the library is really quiet.
This week is kind of slow for school, and I know that means I should be getting ahead in my reading, but instead I'm reading tripadvisor.com, specifically looking at Aruba! I feel like we're finally a little closer to knowing what we're doing for our vacation! YAY!!
Alright, time to read about how culture influences our perceptions :)
