I think that optimism is something that describes me fairly well. As an optimist I tend to look at only the good things, but on the other side I have an issue with being blind to risks. I will admit that I frequently am blind to certain risks associated with certain things.
I think its clear that my past experiences have shaped how I currently react to choices I have to make now. This is evident when trying to find a college to go to, and choosing areas that are similar to areas that I have been in the past, or areas that I am familiar with. This is also evident when I go to find a book, genres that I have read in the past will most likely determine what I will read in the future.
