Burning the midnight oil.

I am so proud of my cousin who will soon be finishing his doctorate degree. He is currently a professor in a prestigious university here in the country and with the work he’s doing for school, being a professor and student, you’d think he will become grouchy due to exhaustion. But you know what? He’s remained positive, cheerful, and full of life! He now wears progressive lenses and is always burning the midnight oil.

I wish I had the same determination when I was younger. I wanted to become a lawyer but got sidetracked due to family obligations. I can probably still pursue my dreams but I feel I am too old to start now.

Oh, well. Such is life. You take whatever it gives you and accept that some things are not meant to be.
