I have a thought process as rigorous as the most treacherous mountains in the world. Long car rides are my preferred setting for sitting down to write. I was born a writer, but I will die an author.
Contemplation of the future is a common reoccurrence in my everyday life. I continue to think of where my life is leading me. I am at a crossroads, trying to discover which road to travel. Constructive criticism is always welcome.

My life is a gigantic "if, not when." Though most people keep telling me, "when, not if." When I graduate. When I move out. When I go to college. When I get a job. Yes, these I admit are "when's". These are "when's" I was raised on.
What about the "if's" I've developed. If I graduate early. If I move to New York. If I major in music management. If I instead double major in psycology and literature. If I become a social worker or a counselor. If I meet a man and he becomes my husband. If I have children. If I figure my stuff out, and by stuff, I mean the chaotic mess that is my life.
There it is, the biggest "if, not when." If I figure it out. . . whatever it is. It is my future. I know what I want. It's getting there; now behold the problem that has arisen, it's getting there, but get there I will, and fight I will to do so.
If, not when I get there. No. When, not if. I will get there. No "if's," "and's" or "but's" about it. I do not want my life to be an "if, not when."
