Connie X Mary

I was walking home (holding my freshly baked dominos pizza) when I had an epiphany.

This is the best way I can sum up my train of thought:
-> My pizza made me happy.
-> Will this pizza always make me happy- time after time?
-> No, I'll probably get sick of the pizza as a special concept, and become desensitised to its effects.
-> I'd have to upgrade, perhaps start indulging in restaurant grade pizza.
-> But I could never be satisfied with that forever- more upgrades.
-> It's possible that one day I'll have eaten all the best pizzas in the world and no pizza could make me as happy as it once did.
-> I am terrified as I realise happiness is never stationary and you must always be fuelling it.

In this sense I can kind of understand how some incredibly successful people are not happy- where do you go once you hold in your hands the stars you've always dreamed of reaching?

"I used to dream every night, now i never dream at all.
 I'm hopin' that it's cause I'm livin' everything I want."
- Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) 

Luckily I'm still reaching for my ultimate goal; there are many more checkpoints to come and I'm excited for each and every one of them. 

This scene from The Great Gatsby comes to mind:

Statement jackets/outerwear can really make an outfit 100x better.
