Don’t dream it’s over. Or: Don’t dream. It’s over.

The protagonist then arrives at a major hurdle wherein he begins to question the goal he set out for himself at the beginning of our story. With everything taken from him, the protagonist probes deeper into his problem, and sometimes, with the aid of an important person or object, experiences catharsis and reflection over what has happened and what he has to do. He gathers strength from this and arrives at another point of decision on whether or not he should continue to reach for his goal.1

I’ve always wanted to teach film. It’s the story of my life.

1Even if he decides to pursue it, the protagonist does not always win.

The pattern will form me.

One day, I will return to this. I will remember what it is like to dream, to be flighty, to feel. I will see images that nobody else can counter, because the images will be drifting before anybody notices.

I, too, will be drifting before anybody notices.

I celebrated by wearing a souvenir t-shirt.

A year ago, I thought I found an escape route. It was a shortcut towards temporary happiness.
Soon after that, I found myself back in the hole.

It's never really an escape until you're completely free.
