and sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
and looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth;
~The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost
I've moved from Germany, to Quebec, to Alberta, to Ontario. Then around in Ontario a few times.
I've gone from being a pipsqueak of a little kid to being a 21 year old.
I was a straight A student, a nerd of the highest order, and I plummeted to a barely scraping by with a C student.
Bubbly and social, I've turned into a complete introvert.
None of this would I change.
Well, no, that's a bit of a lie. I'd probably change the slacker part. I really do wish I'd gotten better grades in school. Hell, I wish I'd GONE to school more. And actually finished college. But I'd be a very different person than I am now. And I'm finally starting to be okay with who I am, and finally like myself. And that's because of the choices I've made in my past.
I've always made the easy choices in my life. Hard work and effort and I have never really been friends. I float by. The things that I really try for...well, they tend to be the stupid shit that I like. Not that things that I have to do.
But that's the choice I've made.
