A visit with my 11-year-old self

when I was young I wanted to be an NBA basketball player, a lawyer

and a CIA agent

I guess I just figured I could practice law during the day

play basketball in the evening

and squeeze in the occasional spy assignment on my days off

Now that I’m older my aim is to get 9 hours of sleep

quit smoking

and figure out how to put together my Ikea furniture.

If my younger self could see me now

he’d probably ask me where he went wrong

I’d tell him the truth

it’s all your fault

you spread yourself too thin.

Pick one thing, and stick with it, you ambitious little asshole.
