a fork in the road

I’ve been playing Green Day’s Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) over and over for the past hour, which is not really good sign, because it means that I’m scared shitless but nevertheless trying to convince myself that everything will turn out fine.  It’s a new year, and while a huge part of me is awash with optimism and excitement and all that, there’s also that small, nagging part of me that’s, well, scared shitless.

But hey, there’s that line from the movie Bounce: “It’s not brave if you’re not scared.”

P.S.  Okay, in plain words, I basically go all Time-of-Your-Life-ish every time I switch jobs. This is just me feeling the pressure of having to prove myself and live up to expectations.

P.P.S. While I don’t exactly count Bounce as one of my all-time favorite movies, it is the source two classic lines: the one above, and “I want someone to say goodnight to, a last call of the day. I don’t have a last call of the day. Do you?” That line was just pure torture.  Emo!
