Sometimes, life is just hard... You have to do things you don't want to do, talk to people you don't want to talk to, figure out things you don't want to figure out. You wish that the times were simpler...when the toughest thing was figuring out what you were going to do that night. But times change. People change. Situations change. And if they matter to you, you have to fight to figure out what to do about it. It's not easy. And it's not fun. But it can definitely be worth it.
This lesson, I realized today, can be shown using the infamous game Frogger as a metaphor. That really is what Frogger is about, I'm sure. Think about it: you're a tiny little frog, trying to make your way to the end, whether that end is across the street or river, or to retirement..through each level the expectations and requirements change. You try to zip your way through the slow moving trucks, only to get smashed on the pavement by the tiny fast cars, causing you to start all over again. Really, a frustrating game if you think about it. Good thing it was only $6.99 - used.
