The story I most want to tell right now is about my GED. I never thought I would get it, but then again, I never thought I would drop out either. I don't have a lot to say about it, it's just one of the things that's happening. I don't really feel much about it, to be honest. I feel like I should probably feel more about it, like, feel more excited or happy or feel anything, but I don't know, it's weird. It doesn't feel very momentous; it feels more like an afterthought.   I think maybe if I had done it the traditional way it would feel better, but it feels like a given. More like tying up a loose end rather than a new beginning, you know? And I don't know, I really don't have plans for what I'm going to do after. I don't think I would be very good at college, but I also don't think my future would be very good without it. I try not to think about it. Which I guess is how I've done most things, by not really thinking, you know? So I guess the story I want to tell about my GED isn't really a story at all. I don't think I have another story though. I don't think everyone does. Sometimes it's life and watching TV and going to college and walking the dog but there's not really a story. There's not really a lot.
