gut gelernt

“You don´t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they percieve as your success. You don´t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don´t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don´t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.

You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. Your have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth. But that´s all.
….
I hope when people ask you what you´re going to do with your English and/ or Creative writing [oder Philosophie oder Buchdruck oder Masterstudium oder Soziologie oder Literaturwissenschaften oder was auch immer] degree you´ll say: Continue my bookish examination of the contradictions and complexities of human motivation and desire; or maybe just: Carry it withe me, as I do everything that matters.

And then smile very serenely until the say, Oh.”

    gleichzeitig wächst es, das bewusstsein dafür.
