I work nights and am surrounded by artificial light far too much. I hate it, so when I get home I really enjoy chilling out in absolute darkness for a couple minutes. Like a sensory deprivation tank but cheaper. I was thinking that in a city that is always lit up, darkness could be a commodity. The Flickering lights is because I'm a smart ass :)
Hi! I'm thinking little people or personified animals to live here, but I was inspired by everyone else's worlds within nature posts.
E had orientation at his school today. He wanted to see the auditorium before we left.

My senior year in high school, I was voted "Most Likely To Succeed." Twenty-five years later, I look back on that and I can't help but laugh. This designation was voted upon by my peers and based on my visible achievements to date. Yes, I was top of my class, active in student government, music, theater, honor society, you name it. But in retrospect, how did any of those achievements predict "success?" And how should "success" be defined anyway? Certainly I'm not the richest person in my class … I know C-average students who went on to start their own businesses and make far more money than I do. I never won a Nobel Prize; I'm not famous; I don't have any patents. I went to and graduated from a well-known university; I have an interesting job with a steady income that lets me pursue my interests on the side; I own a house in which I'm raising a family.
Have I "succeeded" any more or less than anyone else? Have I exceeded or failed the expectations of me?
