How brave have I been? How adventurous? Where is my life realistically headed: to the King’s Landings of our world, or the proverbial North Wall? I want to travel to Pentos and ride with the Dothraki. I want to join Robb Stark’s army as they move to King’s Landing, even if my motives aren’t exactly war-oriented. And please, for the love of the Old Gods, give me the chance to push someone like King Joffrey off the north side of the Wall. It’s time to break free from the routine and start down a new road with unwavering determination.
