I realized recently that having the right kind of friends is important. Specifically, I mean friends that challenge you. I’m learning it’s not really a good idea to surround yourself exclusively with people who you’re totally comfortable with, because if you do that then you’re not really letting yourself grow at all. If you’re totally and completely at ease with the people you chill with all the time, you’re probably going to stagnate. Not that I’m saying being socially uncomfortable is a good thing, but only that your friends need to challenge you to be better than you currently are. However that happens, I guess…but it needs to. Otherwise how are you ever going to get better at anything?

Also I had a dream last night that was Batman from The Dark Knight and me on a pirate ship with a soundtrack by Trent Reznor. Not a joke, really real life. Real dream.
