Why is it that some people seem to make constant progress in their professional and personal lives, while others appear to be doomed to repeat the same mistakes time and time again? As humans, we aren’t destined nor doomed to either succeed or fail.
I believe success is a choice and can only be achieved if old habits are changed and better ones implemented. Being outgoing, open-minded, and eager when trying new and productive things lays the foundation for developing a happier and more successful life.
The events are seen from a third-person narrator's point of view, who’s unnamed and unknown in the story.
Considering the fact that the narrator is only able to describe Kelley’s thoughts and feelings, he isn’t what many might label as an omniscient narrator because of his limited knowledge of events along with the thoughts and feelings of other characters.
An example is given on line 139; “I fear I may have made it sound more exciting than it really was,” said John; here John has to describe and tell his feelings himself, opposed to Kelley where the narrator describes them for her; “But Kelley’s second reason for preferring to thumb rides was that when she graduated she wanted to be a writer” (p.1, 11).
