I Just Wish I Knew

I seem to get inspired at night... Especially on week nights. I wonder what my teachers would say about that when I would tell them: "No, Mr. Fill-In-The-Blank, I'm not tired because I stayed up watching reruns of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians;' I'm tired because my brain decided to create something magical: an idea." What if, somehow, when we are born, God would give us a list of what is going to happen to us in the future. Who we would meet, who we would be, where we would go. Wouldn't that make life just so much easier? Our decisions would be made for us because God would know what would be good for us. I guess that would just take the creativity out of life... But it's interesting to think about.

I'm struggling at the moment, thinking about my future. I am a high school senior, about to enter the real world. What is the right path? I wish that wasn't a rhetorical question. Should I be a writer, a designer, or an artist? How can I make an impact on the world? I know I want to leave my mark; I know I was born for a reason. But what reason? I just wish I knew.

And as I begin to close, may I leave you with this very relevant quote:
