I'm sitting at one of my favorite Starbucks in Miami, staring out the window at the sky. On my left, the sky is covered in ominous clouds that threaten rain and fill me with a tinge of despair. On my right, a bright light blue sky with white streaks of shapeless clouds fills me with [...]

Cognitive Dissonance — or, remind me who I am

I've been having this struggle lately (/slash/ not-so-lately) and I was thinking maybe you've been there too. Or maybe you'll be there someday. Or maybe you've seen someone who's been there.
