This Is The Greatest Quote I've Ever Read

I can’t get this quote out of my head. It’s so perfect. Here I was, ready to go to sleep. I wanted to go to sleep early tonight as I’ve been having trouble sleeping recently for a multitude of reasons. One is the heating vent in my room is schizophrenic- sometimes it shuts off automatically so I wake up shivering, and sometimes it never shuts off and I wake up in a pool of sweat. It has an “auto” button but I guess the machines are taking over and it just decides what to do on it’s own and just fucks with me day to day. Tip of my cap, I respect the troll job. I also have been waking up due to bad acid reflux, which I should probably/definitely see a doctor about before the acid literally burns a hole in my esophagus which I’ve heard is, as Chaps would say, actually bad! I am under the assumption having such bad acid reflux that it wakes you up at 3am and you have to go stick your face under the bathroom sink and start guzzling down cold water in a half-awake, half-asleep daze isn’t optimal. Yes ladies, I’m single.

So since I wanted to go to sleep early, I got into bed and started where I left off in Mad Men, which I’m watching for the first time and quite enjoying. The great thing about Mad Men is episodes are about 47 minutes long, which go great with teeth whitening strips that take an hour. So I slapped on the teeth whitening strips ready to watch an ep, wait another 13 minutes, and then go to sleep. But that’s where I goofed up- I started an episode last night and had 35 minutes remaining in it. Not wanting to get in the habit of stopping episodes half way through and ruining my entire routine, after finishing up the rest of the episode, I needed something else to watch.

Enter exurb1a.

Exurb1a is a YouTube person who makes humorous, yet smart and thought provoking videos about the universe and what it all means and what life on Earth is all about, pretty fascinating stuff. I blogged about his videos in 2016 (don’t mind the date of the blog, had to change it to get videos to load, loltechnology) and tonight for some reason my memory was jotted about what great videos he makes, so I went back to watch more videos for just the 2nd time since then.

And the first one I watched was about how hard it is to follow your dreams, with all the self-doubt, outside negativity, and obstacles that will get in your way. Pretty much, I don’t know, EVERYONE IN THE WORLD can relate to it:

And then right there at the end, the quote of a lifetime,

It summarizes everything that makes life so hard, yet so rewarding. Going for it, believing in yourself, and doing what people say you can’t do, one day will be worth it. And at the same time we’re talking about shitting fire from chewing glass. It’s perfect. “I have a dream, that one day, I’ll chew enough glass, to be able to shit hot, hot fire” – MLK – exurb1a – Barstool Nate.

I quite enjoyed this new one as well too

Oh and this one is amazing too.

Basically they all are. Just go to his channel and start at the beginning and watch them all.

But anyway, goodnight, friends. Chew some glass tomorrow.
