    Hi Archinect,

    I am so honored that my blog made Top 12 Blogs for '12 and my profile too! Thanks for reading my blog and having such an active discussion on the topics. It's always great to hear from you. Anyway, on this super cold Sunday, I want to share my recent inspiration with you.

    Since my work is an hour and 15 minutes away from my house (oh suburbs...), I have a carpool buddy to share the ride with occasionally. He's a doctor, who of course makes SO MUCH MORE money than us interns. He had an American dream to make money and live the life he wouldn't be able to live in his own country. Two days ago on our ride home in the snow, for a good two hours, he complained how he doesn't have any talents. "It's like I am not good at anything in life," he said. But I have always believed that everyone has a talent. Most of them, like my friend here, just haven't found it yet. 

    Continue the inspirational thought after the break.
