‘I haven’t failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.’
– Thomas Edison
Way to look on the bright side Edison! This quote seems particularly apt for me right now considering I have spent the last four days slaving over a Psychology assignment and have gotten absolutely nowhere. It is slowly reducing me to a muddy puddle on the floor and BECKY IS CRANKY. After all the effort I have put in I have nothing to show for it, and that’s what makes me most angry because it feels like a waste of time.
I think it’s time I take a deep breath and take a page out of Edison’s book, I may have found 10,000 journal articles that won’t work but hopefully that means I am slowly getting closer to a few that will, and I’ll have to find something eventually, right?
~ *Note: If you do not hear from me for over two months it is likely I have died under a pile of Psychology text books. Recommended Action: Send a search party.*
I suppose it is a matter of perspective and Thomas Edison seems to shine a light of optimism. One thing’s for sure, giving up is not an option. Becky doesn’t give up.
