Spent half the day working on lesson plans for my new ESL job, the other half watching the end of the Netflix series: House of Cards. SPOILER ALERT! What I love about the series is the causes that lead to effects one wouldn't imagine: falling off the wagon, suicide, lawsuits, realizations that characters may have assisted in murder.
I know it is a fictional story, but all good stories have a nugget of truth in them. It makes me think of the causes I may have had a hand in that have led to effects I'd never bargained for. The idea that if I had not decided to go to EMU back in 1997, I would not be sitting here, tapping away in the Bronx. Where would life have led me? Something better? Something worse?
