It's high time I start getting what I want. I'm tired of waiting for my ship to come in, for luck to strike and lend me a hand; I'm going straight for what I've had my eyes set on (for far too long) in the distance. No compromises, and no looking back. Let this stand as record of my giving-up on letting life happen as it comes. I'm taking control from here on, heading in one direction: up.
