The Road Not Taken


60. ROBERT FROST: The road not taken


Nice little pictorial story about the two paths that Robert Frost’s life might have taken. I’m not going to spout some sentimental crap about choosing your own path, but it’s interesting to think that one simple decision can change your whole life. If I’d not moved to Glasgow in 1998 I wonder where I would be now? I was 0.5% of a grade away from being accepted to a scholarship that would have seen me going to the states for University and having a career in the oil industry, 0.5% that’s it… The admission criteria was something like 90% and when all my scores were totalled up I had 89.5%

I’m glad I ended up where I ended up, and I’m happy, but I do sometimes wonder what the heck would have happened to me if I’d gotten that extra 0.5%.
