I see the life one of my older brother's has, and I want something like it. Granted, he never finished college, but his job isn't dead-end. He has a lovely house, pets, a wife he loves, a baby son, hobbies, friends; all things I crave. And what motivates me, is I don't wish to die before experiencing any of that. It will be extremely hard work, but I know the reward will be great, and I will try my hardest to achieve it.

Hiding himself away, watching all the memories fade away from red to black"
