The life that is waiting for us

First, I want to thank you for your awesome comments on my A good dose of teen literature post. I wasn’t expecting so many positive comments, especially about books labeled “teen”, so I was really pleasantly surprised. It was a nice reminder that I really should be myself completely on here and not fear the outcome (because chances are it’ll be a good one!). On another note, I’m late in posting my two features for today because I’ve had a bit of a sad day. I found out that a program I’d been wanting to volunteer for and whose information I’ve been holding onto for over a year pretty much requires French speakers (which I am not). I chose this quote by E. M. Forster because I’m starting to worry that maybe I’m working so hard for what I think is right for me and, in doing so, am wasting time on what is really in store for me. I’ve found that just sitting around doesn’t open any doors, that you must open the doors for yourself, but maybe I’m just stubbornly trying to open locked doors again and again. Do you ever feel this way? What did you end up doing when your plans continued to never work out? I hope you all have a marvelous weekend!
P.S. This is a photo I took on my first Rheinfall trip!
