I have been grasping for inspiration lately. A recent personal setback has created this intense wealth of motivation and desire to prove myself in my professional and academic life. This has resulted in some of the most efficient studying, planning, and self-improvement I've ever done, but somehow I just can't seem to come up with anything to post on this blog right now. I think a lot of it has to do with stress. My stress level is at a baseline 8 on the 1-10 scale these days, so there's always something a little more pressing than blogging, even if it's just giving myself a well-deserved 20 minute tv break while I eat. Obviously, in this vein, today's 20-min break is dedicated to finding (and sharing) inspiration instead of watching yet another episode of Parks and Recreation.
