    Warning: The following is very likely the result of a dangerous combination of sleep deprivation and caffeine-induced dementia...

    I just got back to my room from another long day in a series of long days that started when my life (before these long days) ended... and I can't remember what that other life felt like anymore. As I kick off my shoes and compulsively check my RJ before passing out just in time to get up and hop back on my hamster-wheel tomorrow, it occurs to me that I'm not the only one out there working my ass off. I get a weird sort of comfort from that.

    So whatever you're reaching deep down to get through... personal issues, career issues, prep for an upcoming event, fitness goals... keep digging. Keep fighting. You are The Man in the Arena, and we're counting on you. When you pull through this, and you succeed, you'll show me that it can be done... and I'll know I can do it... and I'll show someone else that they can do it, too.

    Get whatever precious sleep you can squeeze in before hitting the ground running in the morning, then get out there and give them hell. Show them what we're made of.

    Heheh, I'm not usually the warm'n fuzzy type, but I figured if it hit me I should run with it.

    I have a few people who are very close to me that I know are struggling with stuff right now. I'm not a natural encouragerer =d

    Back to studying...

    Actually, I think this is one of the best posts I have ever seen on here. Really very cool. I don't think it matters how old you are, or how old the reader is - a good message is a good message. No such thing as too many of those. Thanks for taking the time to create it - you are more of a "natural encourager" than you realize!!!icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
