I often feel a giant need to have control over my life and my environment. I dislike variables. I am afraid my world would be thrown off by someone else’s impulsive actions. But as I applied to colleges, uncertainty becomes a comfort. I still do not know where I will be the upcoming years. The upcoming weeks, I might be rejected by every school I applied to. Being my usual self, I felt frustrated. The waiting is too long, and the final decisions I receive might be terribly disappointing. But as I read more about successful people in the world, I realized not all of us have to follow the same footsteps, going to the same colleges (or even need to go to college at all). Life excites me with its variables and opportunities. Even if I fail today, my life will not be destined to poverty and misery. That is the comfort of the uncertainty.
