My own life is governed by such unwritten rules. The will of society is an overwhelming force that is very difficult to go against. Personally my life has fit the mold of what has been expected of me. Being only nineteen, IвЂ™ve gone to school, gotten good grades, and now IвЂ™m in college. IвЂ™m riding the train of life down the same track that millions of other kids my age have rode. Society deems it necessary that we go down this path in order to achieve success, it is a social path that is based on the American dream, that success can be achieved through hard work. But the underlying motivation in most cases of life is money, or currency of any sort. If it were up to me, IвЂ™d play video games for the rest of my life, but money motivates most of the activities in our lives.
