A lesson that is often taught is that if a person wants something badly enough, and tries for it, that person will usually obtain what is wanted. This concept became true for me last year as I obtained a summer job with the forest service in Oregon. Working and living in the mountain-west had been a life-long dream of mine, and it was finally happening. I secured my job in late April, and spent much of spring quarter just waiting for summer to come.
