Since coming to Detroit, I’ve experienced an increased motivation to learn, and it’s a drive that’s found itself in my work and free time. It’s found itself in my increased willingness to sit down and actually invest in reading non-fiction as well as fiction. It’s found itself in my art, and where I’ve been led in order to better hone it. It’s interesting because while it comes with its benefits, it also comes with a mild concern. It drives me to research, read, and write, but its been gradually categorizing what I once thought as free time as now more of a waste of time.
