Last week, I was completely beat down by overwhelming assignments that I didn’t actually put in too much effort into my work in progress. However, by Friday, I finally realized the cruel reality behind my wasted time– I had no motivation because I was not inspired in any way, which entitles that I have not utlized my AMP time wisely. These robotic functions that have powered me through the past week (and maybe even before that) have saddened me so, and I hope to make up for my lost potential by once again, putting my best effort into my work. Although I have not progressed much thus far on my painting, my resolve is not just to finish my work of art, BUT to also be proud of it. I will let these feelings take a hold of me, and then use them to surpass what my supposed potential is. The pure belief that I have in myself may seem narcissistic and egotistical at first, but as in the words of Virgil, “[I] can because [I] think [I] can”. I’ll leave you with those words, and also the promise that I will put in my earnest effort to empower the AMP movement.
