Make a Choice
You cannot chase two gazelles meaning you only can choose one. In my life I have had to make some pretty hefty decisions. Most of them had significant differences in the outcome, because of the one I had picked. Every day I make choices whether it be what I eat for breakfast or what to wear to school. Each of them have different outcomes.
One of the choices that I have made in my life that impacted my life the most was when I was in 8th grade. When I was in 8th grade I was faced with three choices, one was to get to Abington Heights High School. Another was to get to Scranton Preparatory School. And the last choice was to go to Wyoming Seminary. Where I went to school will impact me for the rest of my life. When I was in 8th grade and still today I wanted to go to Wyoming Seminary. Wyoming Seminary is one of the best schools in the area its better than Prep and Abington, and the majority of my good friends went there, but it also cost a ton of money. Wyoming Seminary I believe cost about $45,000 dollars a Year that is a lot of money. Most people cannot afford it. My next choice was Prep, because some of my good friends went there, but like Wyoming it costs a lot of money 12,000 dollars a year. So my last choice was Abington Heights which isn’t the worst choice but not my first. I hardly knew anybody that went to this school and the academics aren’t the best but it gets the job done. Another feature that is pretty respectable is that it is free. Who doesn’t like free things?
In my life I was faced with some pretty big decisions some of them had huge impacts on my life while others were not as important, but in your life you cannot chase two gazelles. A person only can choose one.
