Abstract
  • This thesis consists of a collection of personal essays with interconnecting themes. The title, Aspiration, suggests a desire for high achievement and also reflects the metaphor of breathing, which serves to tie the collection together. Breathing is a physiological function that is subject to both voluntary and involuntary control, and the same mysterious interplay seems to shape our lives as we negotiate the choices we have and the circumstances that arise despite our will. Part I of the collection contains essays about my family and the loss of a loved one, while Part II explores the more purposeful aspects of aspiration, such as choices I make about independence and pursuing physical challenges. I've elected to write a creative nonfiction thesis because it serves to demonstrate my performance in the area of composition and also allows me to incorporate themes from the other areas of my MAIS degree: speech communication and exercise psychology.
