“Its good to have options” rings David Bazan from the speakers. Just ending a call with my girlfriend it occurred to me the song captures my persona. The reason I keep my bills low, the reason I run, and the reason I continue to game plan many different options in life. Despite it being an option I would want to take, I will change a large part of my life to ensure it exists. Maybe the fact that I have changed course so many times since being an adult leaves me questioning the path forward I have established.
I leave the option open to join the military again and serve my country. I leave the option to pay all my bills on time so that I could work at Walmart. I learn about things in addition to computers in case I want to fix cars one day. As the song goes, Its good to have options
