Back in the early days of my existence, I developed a certain love for “choose your own adventure” books. There was just something so thrilling about feeling like I had a hand in how the story played out. Oftentimes, I’d make a decision as to which scenario I wished to unfold and would be so intensely convinced it was the right one, and then turn to the designated page only to find out I had effectively ended the story/allowed the evil zombie robot mutant dinosaurs to blow up the world.
