what is more important in a career, passion or stability?




I interned at NASA during the summer of '13, and whenever my experiments were running, I would take the opportunity to reflect about various struggles and fears I was going through at the time. What ended up making it into this book included: 

- a reflection about my relationship with my mom

- career aspirations (passion vs. stability)

- coworker's conversations

- a gmail chat

- and a late-night documentation of vandalism



I am charging $3 because I would like to help support my two photographer friends who got involved in this project, Sam, who shot the b & w photos, and Austin, who shot the color ones.



Even 2.5 years after I wrote, this is still probably the piece that I'm most proud of. I appreciate that it's an honest (if not slightly angsty) record of my thoughts, priorities, and emotional state after my first year of college, and I can even see how I first got inspired to write an organic chemistry textbook.
