Narcissit? Who me?

Ass-pirations

There isn't a lot I aspire to be, but I am beginning to think that maybe I'm asking too little of myself.

Let me expand. I don't want to be the first man on Mars. I don't want to be an Olympic gold medalist. I have never wanted to, or even been able to dream of being good at math. And although I may wish it to happen, I don't expect to win an Academy Award anytime soon. But there are certain things that I would like to expect out of my life, and I have come to the conclusion that a lot of it has to do with ME standing in my own way.

Could I have finished that painting by now? Yes. Have I? No. Why? Because I watch about 9 hours of television a day. Could I have devoted some of my time to comprehending my university business classes? No, because at that point in my life I was pretty damn interesting in sub-consciously studying the insides of my eyelids.
