Here’s to one of the most talented team that has ever graced our screens. You have been a great inspiration to me and what I want to be in the future. One of my goals in life was to actually work for this company. A bittersweet end for such an amazing group of people. Bye bye, Sourcefed.

Do you ever think back to childhood and almost feel like it didn't happen? Like it was just a different life? I'm just such a different person now than I was then, that it just feels like it was all a dream.

i do. the memories i look back on are often so fuzzy and far away from the present that they almost feel like trying to remember a faint dream. it’s kind of a scary feeling, to be honest

Bittersweet is the practice of believing that we really do need both the bitter and the sweet, and that a life of nothing but sweetness rots your teeth and your soul. Bitter is what makes us strong, what forces us to push through, what helps us earn the lines on our faces and the calluses on our hands. Sweet is nice enough, but bittersweet is beautiful, nuanced, full of depth and complexity. Bittersweet is courageous, gutsy, earthy.
