I like this life.
I remember somewhere in some book (Walk Two Moons, I think) someone said sometime something about everybody being afraid of change. Change’s only problem is that it is completely unpredictable.
Nobody likes living in unpredictability. Say they roll two dice to determine whether you get school tomorrow. People would never dare to vacation because they might get unlucky and miss all school days. It’s crazy.
In the same way, I really worry about the future sometimes. Who knows what will happen in five years? When will your friends, your parents, your teachers have to leave you or do something to you or change your life? It’s frightening.
Sadly for some people, life is like that.
