Hello World

Posted: October 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is the first real post! I am going to jump right in. This week I have been thinking a lot about choices, big and small. The way i see it, Even the smallest choice can have incredible and far reaching impacts. It is sort of like turning a car going 70 mph. Even if you just shift the wheel slightly, you end up with an entirely different path in a very short amount of time. A more “real” example would be the event that put this general idea into my head. My freshman year, I decided to play a game on my iPod one morning in homeroom. At the time, I didn’t think anything of it, even when the kid next to me asked if he could try. After a while, it became a ritual. Every morning, we would both play and see if we could beat our high scores. One thing led to another, and we ended up hanging out. Today, this person who was once a total stranger, is now my closest friend. If I had never made the small choice to pull out a game that morning, we would never have even crossed paths. That’s just something interesting to think about.
