Motivation in my book, is anything that drives me to get off my butt.

My motivation is a song that constantly lingers in my brain. it never lets me slow down. i wake in the morning and this song gets my gears to moving. each person has their own form of motivation. all in all, i guess its the music that really motivates me.

The name of the song is Walking On Sunshine.

I don’t know, I don’t believe I have enough, because I haven’t been driven to accomplish the things I wanted to do.

After tonight, I’m thinking pan-motivation, bi-motivation, hetero-motivation, homo-motivation and omni-motivation… and I’m sure that’s just scratching the surface of motivation.

But I’m not motivated enough to say more at this time. And I’m only motivated enough—and barely enough for that—to trundle off to bed.
