Common Sense (Or the lack thereof)

Have you ever reached a point in your life in which you
have two choices of paths to take, and you know which one
is the one you should choose, yet you just can't bring
yourself to do it? Well, that's me at this point. I'm not
even just that hopeless, I'm worse because I've been in
this situation before, and even with the experience I still
cannot make the decision I know to be the better. To avoid
getting into the specific details and names (as well as to
completely screw with your minds), I'm going to make an
analogy. My situation is comparative to someone who wants
to plant a tree in their yard, but they're not sure whether
or not they want this tree that they found at the store.
Only to make matters worse, they're not really sure if they
even like having trees in their yard. There's a
possibility that I might not have lost you there, which I
guess could be a good thing. Take that insane situation
and add it to my recent discovery that I am working to lead
my life down a road that is opposite to someone that I
believed to be quite the same as me, and it's all just
crazy. But surprisingly I'm not too worried. My year or
so of bracing myself for such a time's arrival has paid off
(at least for now). For once I had some foresight and knew
that having my beliefs clearly defined would pay off later
on. (Oh christ I feel like I'm writing my college essay
all over again.) To completely change subjects, I'd like
to make it public to the world that I have no intentions of
ever joining the armed forces, and I also do not know
anyone who would want to join. SO STOP CALLING! If you
saw me, you'd quickly realize that I would be of no
assistance, so I'm doing you a favor here. (I would like
to take this moment to give a shout-out to the cool Navy
guy that called who was nice enough to stop bugging me
after I told him that I was going to college next year.)
Now I believe I'm going to close this great little insane
entry with a question and a quote from Pride and Prejudice.

Q: If you see a lesson to be learned from something and
actually learn it but feel no intense emotion or pain to
cause you to learn the lesson, is the result any worse than
if you had been in a tragedy and learned the lesson as a

"In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings
wiill not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how
ardently I admire and love you. In declaring myself thus I
am fully aware that I will be going expressly against the
wishes of my family, my friends, and, I hardly need add,
my own better judgement." ~ Mr. Darcy (Or, if you
prefer, you can say I said it, because I am Mr. Darcy. Or
maybe he is me. One of those two. Either way, we are one:
I didn't just see a part of myself in that book, I saw
