The time is now on everything-
Took my heart away from money, Ain't interested in fame,
Buy I pray that never change-
Ambition is priceless, It's something that's in your veins
And I put that on my name.
I have been on quite the Dave Eggers high recently. Before I left for Paris, I grabbed a few novels that I wanted to read over the summer and The Circle was by far my favorite out of the bunch. The story is about a girl that starts working at a tech company that resembles Google. What originally seems like an incredible experience with a super progressive organization, soon becomes everything but.
A few days ago, I also dug out another novel from the witty author called, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. This book is his memoir and my has Dave Eggers had quite the life; he is playfully honest with telling his story, which is something I can't help but admire, since I aspire to do the same. One of my favorite quotes from his memoir talks about one of my favorite topics, ambition. "We have advantages. We have a cushion to fall back on. This is abundance. A luxury of place and time. Something rare and wonderful. It's almost historically unprecedented. We must do extraordinary things. We have to. It would be absurd not to".
I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to transition out of a traditional blog and move into a big-girl website; one that spoke to my creativity and was as beautiful to look at, as it hopefully is to read. With a growing audience, I felt it only natural to upgrade my look to a more simplistic design and a cleaner layout. Well designed websites generally have greater finesse, than a traditional blog and I wanted to pay tribute to those, who pay tribute to me through viewing. I do hope you enjoy.
