“Infinite Jest” and Inspiration

I finished reading “Infinite Jest” by David Foster Wallace a few weeks ago and have been sitting and digesting it for a bit.  I know that millions of words have probably been written about this particular book and I’m not going to add much to the conversation there, instead I want to examine how it inspired me in a weird way.
