but there is no one who can withstand it.

3rd shift

The thing that bothers me most about third shift, far more than anything else, is the pity and "special treatment" that those closest to me feel they have to give me. Am I less of a person because I sleep during the day? Is my life so awful because I'm starting to gain financial independence? My situation is the best it has been in the last 4 years. Which is not to say my life is the best it could be, there are lots of things I regret and situations/opportunities I could have handled better. But, that's in the past and there is nothing I can do about them now. Right now I am doing the best I can with what I have, and people seem to think that I am some how diseased with disappointment.

some men are born great...

some men are born great others have greatness thrust upon them.
-teddy Roosevelt

teddy Roosevelt of all people should have realized that greatness is not only "innate" and "given" but also achievable through planning, determination and shear force of will.

given how he worked his way through his sickly childhood, and his sense of rugged individuality.

I've been thinking

When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What the hell am I supposed to do with these?! Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

-Cave Johnson, Founder & CEO of Aperture Science

Someone  is  looking  down  at  you  from  a  satellite
with his finger on the death beam. And somewhere, someone
is watching him. But who’s watching them?!?!!
