Have you ever wondered, “How did I end up here?” How did I end up where I am right now, in this moment, in this exact spot? What did I do, who did I meet to end up here? I’m sure you’ve all seen a TV show or a movie where a character builds a time machine, goes back in time, steps on a leaf, comes back to the future, and everything is changed. Could I have ended up in a better place? Maybe worse? Did I succeed or fail? What if I never picked up that cigarette, that blunt, that bottle of beer, that shot, or even this pen? What if I never went to that party, that club, that house, or to school? What if I never kissed that boy, or that girl? What if I never ran for that bus, that train, or even for that position? What if I never studied, never slept, or never ate? Would I still be here? Would I be here at Baruch College? Would I even be in college at all? Would I still be who I am today? How did all these events fall into place to bring me to where I am right now? How did the universal bring together all these people to put me here? How in the world did I end up here? No, not here physically right now in Baruch College. Not walking down the hallway to here, not the flights of stairs down here, not the train or bus ride here, and not even this assignment that brought me in front of 20 other people here. So, let me ask you again, have you ever wondered how you got here?
