People tell me that I'm, "Spacey." It's true. I often drift into my own little world and replay moments in my life that please or displease me. Then I think of alternate endings to my real-life-replayed experiences, depending on my mood. If I am in need of some cheering up, a bad decision or rejection becomes a good decision. And if I'm just curious, I'll make a good moment a bad one. Just for fun. I like that in my mind I can have control. I like to think that in reality, I have control too. Most believe that they are just this little cork bobbing in a gigantic ocean, being pushed one way or the other. But, I think that our choices dictate our paths in life. You could say (and most do) that you hate your job. But, you made a choice to take that job. And if you are not actively trying to get a better job, than it is nobody's fault but your own. It is about knowing what you like and what you want, then surrounding yourself with those options.

I moved forward one place in line. No one was talking in this room. The sign above the door said, "Admissions," and I was scared. It was my choice to be here. I could just walk out of line and leave. No one knew my name here and would care less if I left. They probably would like it -- gaining space from my absence. But I would stay. I felt sure that I would be rejected, bordering on positive. But I wanted to give it a shot. I wanted to try. "Try," is a good word. "You never know until you try," my father would always say. I don't think he coined the phrase, but I remembered his words. That is why I stayed…
