After sitting through the night finding excuses not to sleep... I went to visit the web site for the first university I ever intended. I've been thinking a lot about what might have been. Where I would be... What I would be doing... Who I would love... Had I stuck it out there. And then I found this quote... And its sparked some thoughts for a possible entry in The Window. It's one of the best quotes I've ever read... because it's true... and it hits real close to home.

Speaking of entries for The Window... I've got a couple written. It's just that I haven't been around my computer much. (All of my recent LJ entries were written at work.) I'll try to post something new there before I go home for the weekend.
