Into the great unknown
A few weeks ago, one of my friends graduated from high school. Another just finished her sophomore year. Both recently told me that while they were looking forward to the summer and beyond, life suddenly seemed full of a lot of unknowns. Summer jobs and activities in new places with new people. And in the fall, new classes, a new school, and in one friend’s case, a whole new life.
I understood how they were feeling. A few years ago, I was planning a trip to an unfamiliar part of the United States, where I’d be meeting a lot of new people. Though I’d been in situations like this before, this time, I couldn’t seem to shake the worry about all the unknowns. Would I find my way? Would I meet people I liked, and who would like me? More generally, would everything be OK?
