    Do Stuff Recap Week 3

    Monday: It’s not really a “do stuff”, because all the action took place almost two months ago, but Monday was results day. I may not have the piece of paper in my hand yet, but I can call myself a…

    A Word on Rejection

      Dedication was never something I was good at, and unsurprisingly I’ve broken the chain by week two. I spent the start of this week being mopey, and therefore not “doing stuff”. Frankly, for the first 21 years of my life,…
