I should have posted this yesterday, but yesterday was a fail day. I had no energy and motivation to do anything.
In short, I failed to accomplish yesterday’s Art of Manliness assignment: Find a Mentor. I pitifully tried… I texted a friend for someone’s phone number… but that friend didn’t respond. I called somebody2, but that somebody2 didn’t pick up. I didn’t even try for a third person.
I felt horrible. I was supposed to be looking for adventure, awakening the “Tookish side” within myself. But on Day 3 reality punched me in the face and reminded me how fragile it all was; how fickle and weak-willed my human nature is. Disappointed in myself and grossed out at my own idleness, I dreaded the thought of having to write this post. So when at 8:17PM my friends asked me to hang out at TGIFridays, I jumped at the chance and had a blast, not thinking about adventures at all.
But a worthwhile adventure is surely not without setbacks and failures. I may have not found a mentor (I’m not sure what I’d want in a mentor anyways…), but life is full of them if I have the eyes to see.
