This So-Called Life

One of the lines attributed to Angela (Claire Danes as a teenager), in “My So-Called Life” (1994-95), is:

“This life has been a test. If this had been an actual life, you would have received instructions on where to go and what to do.”

I’ve heard this quotation in other contexts as well. At any rate, it’s a line that keeps coming up for me right now.

As I navigate this limbo state, between knowing and not-knowing, I sorta wish someone really would just tell me where to go and what to do.

Any suggestions?
