Into the Wild


Into the Wild, pg. 132:
“I just don’t understand why he had to take those kind of chances,” Billie protests through her tears. “I just don’t understand it at all.”

As hard as it is for Billie to understand why Alex ventured off into the wilderness unprepared, it’s apparent in the book that he loved to taking chances. Taking chances is so incredibly important because if you don’t take them one day you will reminisce on your life and have regrets. And as we all know, no on likes regretting things. I think that’s the reason Alex chose to take so many life threatening chances. Had he not done it, with his personality, I feel like he would have later regretted not exploring the way he did even though it ended up taking his life.

There is a whole list of things I want to do when I graduate college. One of them being to work on a cruise ship for a year before going to law school. I feel like that’s a chance I want to take because I love travelling, especially by cruise ship. I feel like it would be an incredible experience and if I don’t do it I think I would definitely look back and wish I had!



About Daily Inspiration

My name is Alexandra Mortallaro but most people call me Alex. I'm from Kansas City, Missouri and I have the greatest family on earth. I'm a sophomore at the University of Northwest Missouri State University. The only organization I'm involved in currently is Phi Mu and I have absolutely loved every minute of it since I joined! My major is Political Science and my minor is Criminal Justice. I'm a firm believer in following your dreams and doing whatever you put your mind to. One of my dreams after finishing my undergrad is to score outrageously high on the LSAT and get accepted into a great law school somewhere in Los Angeles. After that my dreams are infinte and you'd laugh at me if you heard them! In my spare time, when i'm not hanging out with friends or family, you can usually find me on pinterest or twitter. My favorite topic to search on Pinterest is quotes because it can be extremely uplifting at times when you need it most which is why I chose to write my blog on Inspiration. I truly deem inspirational quotes one of the best ways to get yourself out of a "funk" and back into doing what you love. If I can make at least one person's day by doing something so simple as posting something inspirational then hey I must be doing something right!
