Kind of Monk
On my ordination day, I thought, "I'm the perfect monk." After about a month of messing up, I realized that I really had been mistaken, but now I was a really good monk, after one month. Then, a year later, I realized I'd really been naive. But now, one year into it, I was a pretty good monk. After five years, I realized the progression, and that now, I just thought I was an okay monk. Now, as I approach 10 years as a monk, I think that by the time I'm 10, I'm just going to be a monk.
