To Reach The Unreachable Star

With all this occupying of cities from Wall Street to Vancouver, I have been thinking a lot lately about the generational differences that have emerged.  To be perfectly honest, I have a hard time relating to the 99%, but at the same time don't really understand why because as an eternal intern, I have also fallen victim to bad policy and a crap economy at the worst possible time...upon graduation from uni.

Being an intern over the last few years has taught me a lot of things, but the thing that it has sparked inside me the most is the belief in the American dream.  I haven't given up hope and have never felt so close to accomplishing the things I have always desired the most.  In fact, sometimes I think that I am privileged for having to endure this crap economy because if it wasn't for that I might not be who I am today.  I have struggled with numerous jobs to support my dream of someday becoming a producer and I appreciate every opportunity all the more because of it.  

I am not bitter.  Maybe I should be.  Yes it's true that I am sometimes late on paying rent, and last week I had to ask my parents to help pay for my broken brakes on my clunk of shit car, but... without a dream, what is there to look forward to?

  1. I see where you are coming from with this... and in some ways I agree, but I have to say that these times could have been prevented and it is nice that you are making do with the hand that you have been dealt, but we need to speak up to the 1%!
