when, exactly...

did I decide that the world owed me a free ride? When did I figure that I could just coast along, and do the bare minimum (or less, sometimes), and get away with whatever I pleased? This rosy world has shattered, and in its place is a stark, grey, place, with accountability and responsibility.

I needed to come here eventually. Why didn't college serve as a wakeup call to this?

Now I need to step back, look at what I have done, and what I haven't, and figure out what I need to do to make it right.

Fortune favors hard workers. Me? I just gave up any claim I had on anything like providence or fortune.

Yours is probably a rhetorical question, but I'd like to express a theory anyway: We worked our asses off at MIT then got out into the "real world" and found out you can still do quite well just doing a fair amount of work. As a result, the bounds of "how little can I do and still be seen as a good worker" get tested. Maybe you found the lower boundary?

Or maybe that's just how I feel. Really, I'm not working half as hard at my job as I did during any semester at MIT. That's kind of sad but I'm still seen as pretty valuable to the team. At some point it will either catch up with me or else I will go find something else to do that I love enough to work my ass off for.

Good luck in figuring out the next step. I know that you're quite capable of kicking butt on what you want to. You just have to figure out if this is what you want to be doing.
