I think all the pressure that I put on myself has been paralyzing. When I graduated from high school, a lot of people wrote in my yearbook: ‘You’re going to do great things,’ or ‘I know you’re going to make it big.’ I realized recently that with all the time I spent trying to figure out what my ‘big thing’ was going to be, I passed over a lot of small things that could have really added up. The moment I became content with taking small steps, I started moving forward again.”

These maps, created with data from okcupid, show how users of the dating site from different US states answer some very interesting questions. The legends are a bit misleading - the brightest green, for example, just goes to the state with the highest proportion of “yes” answers, and doesn’t mean that everyone in the state answered yes - but they still show some intriguing trends.
