According to reports coming out today, local student Jacob Gersbach has completely turned his life around; getting up-to-date with his coursework, taking care of the large pile of laundry in the corner of his room, and shaving for the first time in months: a change he attributes to a picture in his girlfriend’s bedroom.
“I can’t believe it – I felt like I was circling the drain of life before I saw that,” said Gersbach. “I was ready to drop out of Uni, move home for the next few years... all those sorts of things.”
“‘Get up, dress up, show up and never ever give up’ - what a mantra! Did Gandhi write that?”
When asked for comment, Gersbach’s girlfriend Sophie Bolton said she was pleased with the changes Gerbach had made.
“I’ve been on his case for months about these things – if I knew it was this easy, I’d’ve gotten it as a lower back tattoo!”
Gersbach now says he plans to become a full-time life coach and motivational speaker.
“It won’t be easy, you know, but everything good in life is worth fighting for!”
“Remember: Hope is the little voice you hear whisper ‘Maybe’ when it seems the entire world is shouting ‘No’!”
