If life gave us one do-over what would I use it on? Would I take back some things that I have said? Would I have gone to class instead of spending time with my PlayStation? Would I have made a move instead of letting this pass me by?

The answer is I have no clue. I considered all of those scenarios and then some but I am uncertain on this one. Sometimes I think about the Robert Frost poem The Road Less Traveled and wonder which road did I take?

I think I addressed recently that I am not where I thought I would be by now (and that isn’t some sort of pseudo-depressed lament, I’m doing everything I can to get things back on track) and I often think about the reasons behind that. Did I take the easier road or did I make things harder on myself?

That really depends on what is considered the focal point. In the moment of previous choices I did what I thought was the easiest – but that let to a tougher road now. Then again, I don’t think this road is tough based on those choices alone. I think I have decided what I need to do to get where I need to be and have done what I need to in order to get there.

If life had a reset button, or a do-over, I wouldn’t press it. I like the way this game has played out.

Welcome to the empty recesses of my mind! I'm a recent college graduate realizing a Creative Writing degree was a bad idea. Give me a pity like. Or you could check out the about sections (on the front page and about this author page) on my blog to learn a little more about me. Whatever. https://thebohemianrockstarpresents.wordpress.com/
