I always wanted to try.

I couldn’t stay after school.

It wasn’t a class that led to a profitable career.

I should have started in high school, so it’s too late now.

I should have done it in college, so it’s really too late now.

My daughter always wanted to try.

She’s a homeschooler, not many options around.

*keeps looking*

I’ll give it one last try, in this new town, maybe someone will let her try here.

In a blink, we both tried. Clueless, and terrified, we tried. Way beyond our comfort zone, we tried.

Man, let me just say, it’s everything I always wanted it to be.
