'The Biggest Choice Of Your Life'
Posted Sep 16, 2006
I hate having to make choices, but i sometimes have to make some.
I keep getting told that choice X is the most important choice i will make in my life;
does this mean that with every choice we make, the next one will be a higher level of importance, so making the one you are deciding over pointless?
does it mean that the choice you make is the most important choice in your life - At that Moment? (that doesn't seem to make sense really!)
Maybe people say that to make you feel like that choice will make a difference - when it might only be a insignificant difference.
I can't help thinking that each single choice cannot affect your life so much, it's more a series of choices that lead up to the place you are in, what you do and the person you are.

This is a very serious subject, i didn't know whether to start a conversation about it in the 'Ask H2G2' bit, or write a journey entry about it. so, as you might have guessed i'm doing the latter.
now, to the question:
If you have an entry in Peer Review, or the Alternative Writing Workshop or anything like that, and no-one has said anything about it for a few days, is it a really dirty trick to just type something like 'Any more comments' or just simply a so that it will go to the top of the list and people will notice it?
i did it once and felt really guilty afterwards
PS if no-one answers i'll put this in 'Ask H2G2'

i've never kept a diary (or journal for that matter ), actually no, i lie, i have kept a diary once, it lasted about, ooo, 3 days!
after being on H2G2 for about a month and a half i have finally managed to write a diary entry. but what is it about?
umm...........I Know! - It's about me writing my first Journal entry.
well i can't think of any better sujet a le moment, but i hope i do....soon.
