I am, admittedly, a total sap -- but I think it's important to stay positive by any means available. I am now in a position which I enjoy much more, but it helps from time to time to remind myself why I do what I do, who I am doing it for, and what goals I have. It's not just about my romantic relationship, but it also involves other memories, like my time studying in Europe or my college graduation. It brings a little bit of me to a place that would otherwise make us look like an army of work drones in suits. That's why we do it, isn't it?

the things you never want to lose." - The Wonder Years
