You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.”
I'm a teacher. If there's one thing I want my students to learn and remember [forever] it's not that humans are eukaryotes or that plants have cell walls. I want them to learn that they can be or do or see whatever it is they desire.
I've been told so many times, "wow, if only I could have the experiences you've had." Or, "you're so lucky. I could never do that."
Come on, guys. It has nothing to do with luck.
<- see that quote? When an opportunity presents itself, go for it. Because if you wait too long... it passes you by.
I made a promise to myself when I was seventeen that I wouldn't settle, in anything, really. We're not promised tomorrow. So take that trip, get the tattoo, kiss the girl. If you don't, someone else will.
