Me: "I read--news, blogs, social media, academic journals, books and articles for my research, philosophy..."
Friend: "Oh. So you just read all day?"
Me: "No. I read; then, think and write about what I read. After that, I read and write some more. Then, I go work out because I have to make sure my body looks as smart as my mind. Plus, it makes it a lot easier to accept my overall superiority when I know I look good and have a mind that holds the key to the secrets of the universe."
Friend (laughing): "You're crazy. Hilarious."
Me (blank stare, thinking): Yep. I'm just crazy enough to change the world with one pen stroke and an idea. Yeah. It's hilarious how people overlook the power of writers, critical thinkers, and artists. "I know, right."
