Thanks, Mr. Graham.

You have to like what you do enough that the concept of "spare time" seems mistaken. Which is not to say you have to spend all your time working. You can only work so much before you get tired and start to screw up. Then you want to do something else-- even something mindless. But you don't regard this time as the prize and the time you spend working as the pain you endure to earn it.

- Paul Graham, How to Do What You Love

It seemed only appropriate to post one of my favorite links in the world in celebration of doing what I love. (And about two deep breaths before I return to it...many many places to follow up on exceptives...)

Oh! And in celebration of the upcoming "holiday", another fitting Paul Graham piece: Undergraduation.

Paper to be posted shortly...look under "Recent Works" for it and maybe if I'm feeling super desperate, I'll make an entry of it, too.
