Just a Dandelion

“WHO AM I, LIVING IN THE MIDDLE OF HISTORY, TO TELL THE UNIVERSE THAT IT – OR MY OBSERVATION OF IT – IS TEMPORARY?”

I'm only a dandelion – as each particular person inhabiting planet earth. Eternity is an idea past my grasps and comprehension. It includes of 1000's, billions of momentary lives – like mine and yours. We flicker on and out. We're right here one second and the following we could also be gone. How a lot we handle to achieve out, on what number of issues we do certainly put a finger on stays unfathomable. The one objective in our lives that appears considerably cheap and credible is to search out our objective. What’s the purpose in residing once you may be blown away by the wind any second now? Nonetheless, it's an unpromising and unpropitious enterprise and whoever units out to delve into the depths of the recondite and abstruse, winds up within the depths of despair as an alternative.

For sure, the one means out is dead-end road. I'm only a dandelion – such as you. I can get blown away by the tough wind as I'm sitting in my room and typing these phrases. I like being part of that world, although… a world of so many unknowns. And I contempt the approaching second when my remark of it is going to come to an finish. I despise the truth that my story could be dwindled and misplaced among the many a whole lot different. I abhor the mere thought that my remark would halt. I hate it… However I'm only a fragile dandelion – I'm right here and I'm gone. Good riddance to unhealthy garbage. I develop to reveal the spring and the nice and cozy summer season solar however I seldom make it to the recent days of August. The risen solar too brilliant in my shedding eyes. The howling wind too depraved towards my frail wings. Who am I to insinuate hatred in the direction of that infinite magnificence of energy?
I'm only a dandelion however I do relish my tenuous being. Maybe I'm non permanent. Maybe what I get is only a glimpse of the marvels the universe beholds. However I retain my proper to watch its glory and riot of colors. And I intend to indulge and delight in it. So right here I'm, sharing my momentary contemplation of a may too summary and too arcane to call. My existence could also be ephemeral however my remark (and my private progress) could be conserved within the time capsule my essays are.

Essay on Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

“Pygmalion was written to problem the category system, conventional stereotypes and the viewers’s personal views.”
To what extent can this assertion be thought of true of the play?

“Pygmalion each delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914… It's… a barbed assault on the British class system and an announcement of Shaw’s feminist views.” The play proves this citation in Act One, the place Clara, an higher class girl, says to her brother Freddy, “It’s too tiresome. Do you anticipate us to go and get one ourselves?” This citation exhibits that girls anticipate the person to fetch a cab. Within the late 1800s till in regards to the mid 1900s it was anticipated for the person to get moist within the rain trying to find a cab whereas the ladies waited within the dry.

Pygmalion relies on Ovid’s Metamorphoses, which is a couple of sculptor, Pygmalion, who falls in love with the statue he created.

Within the fantasy, Aphrodite brings the statue alive, however Pygmalion forgets that because the statue is now human, she has a thoughts of her personal. You may see how George Bernard Shaw has integrated the parable into his play, the place Higgins is so into making Eliza communicate accurately, so she will move as a duchess so he wins his guess towards Pickering, he forgets that Eliza has emotions of her personal and her personal opinions and ideas, that she will merely stroll out if she needs to.

The higher lessons stereotyped how the decrease lessons lived. They believed they had been uncouth and silly and referred to as them names similar to “baggage” and “blackguard.” Professor Higgins calls Eliza a “squashed cabbage leaf” and an “incarnate insult to the English language.” Additionally, in Act One, when Eliza is leaving Covent Backyard for Drury Lane, she stops a taxi and says “I’m going residence in a taxi!” The motive force tries to carry the door shut towards Eliza, however she exhibits him that she has sufficient cash for the fare. The motive force clearly thinks that Eliza is a prostitute and nonetheless prices her tuppence further, however, after they arrive at Drury Lane, the taxi driver humiliates her by not taking the cash. He says: “Hold the shilling… with love from all at residence.” This exhibits that he thinks Eliza is under him and doesn’t imagine that she will afford the taxi fare.

As we will see from how Shaw portrays Higgins, Shaw could be very a lot a feminist. We are able to see that on this citation: “Girls upset the whole lot. Whenever you allow them to into your life, you discover that the lady is driving at one factor and also you’re driving at one other.” This citation comes from when Higgins and Pickering are discussing girls in Act II. This proves that Shaw is a feminist, nevertheless it additionally proves that Shaw is making an attempt to focus on what the higher class are actually like, that they aren't honest and affordable, they're belligerent, imply and malicious.

In Shaw’s time of dwelling, there have been three lessons, the Higher Class, the Center Class and the Decrease Class. The higher class had been the social elite, going to all of the events and balls, proudly owning the big homes, touring in taxis and dwelling just like the decrease class may solely dream of. The center class was the category in between higher class and decrease class. They could work for the higher class, being comparatively properly paid of their job, which is perhaps as butler, or housekeeper. The center class had been in a position to get these jobs as they'd had correct training, at non-public colleges, in contrast to the decrease class. The decrease class couldn’t afford training, and solely the luckiest decrease class individual may learn or write. Not like the higher class, who would study to learn and write French or Latin, the decrease class couldn't even afford to learn to learn and write their native language. Shaw portrays the category system as corrupt, highlighting how the lessons lived, and the way the higher class, in actuality, had no concept of how the decrease class really lived.

Individuals deal with Eliza sometimes of how the higher class deal with the decrease class. When Freddy knocks into Eliza, we see that he doesn’t assist choose up her basket, like a well mannered gentleman ought to; as an alternative he simply says “Sorry!” and carries on working to hail a cab for his sister and mom. This exhibits that the higher class simply ignore the decrease lessons, pondering of them as ‘grime below their toes’ as an alternative of human beings, identical to them, who even have a life to dwell. Freddy doesn’t appear to comprehend that simply working into Eliza and knocking her flower basket onto the bottom, could have price her a days ‘pay’ from promoting her flowers in Covent Backyard.

Higgins additionally treats Eliza within the typical higher class – decrease class method. He calls her a “Squashed cabbage leaf” and an “incarnate insult to the English language.” Additionally, when Eliza goes to Higgins to request classes in methods to communicate formal English, he says: “Why, that is the woman I jotted down final evening. She’s no use… [To the girl] Be off with you: I don’t need you.” This proves that Higgins has already forgotten what he promised Eliza the evening earlier than, clearly anticipating Eliza to not bear in mind, or simply anticipating her to not hassle coming to him. At any time when Higgins talks to Eliza, he talks right down to her, treating her like she is silly. “Not t?-yee, thoughts: if I ever hear you ever say b?-yee c?-yee d?-yee once more you shall be dragged around the room 3 times by the hair of your head.” This proves that as Higgins is aware of that the decrease class, for instance Eliza, doesn't get training, he contradicts her speech and as an alternative of pondering of Eliza’s colloquial English as one other dialect, he thinks of it as an inferior model of English.

As an alternative of writing a biography of his life and his views, Shaw wrote a play, selecting as an alternative to subtly painting his views by means of the character’s speech and actions. Shaw appears to play barely with Higgins’ character, generally writing Higgins’ speech towards Eliza type and courteous, different instances writing Higgins’ speech to her as merciless and callous. “Any individual goes to the touch you, with a broomstick, if you happen to don’t cease sniveling. Sit down… Right here [he offers her his silk handkerchief]! ” This exhibits that Shaw is various Higgins’ character, making Higgins seem as unstable and capricious because the climate. Shaw likes to point out his opinions about girls and the way they're handled by males by means of how Higgins treats Eliza. Higgins could be very patronizing in the direction of Eliza, for instance: “What on earth will she need with cash… She’ll solely drink if you happen to give her cash… She’s incapable of understanding something.” This exhibits that he has concepts of what the decrease lessons are like and the way they dwell. He routinely assumes that cash Eliza earns, she is going to squander on alcohol, and he additionally assumes that she doesn’t know something.

At the start of the play, Bernard Shaw exhibits us how the higher class ought to deal with the decrease class by means of Colonel Pickering. When Higgins is being very patronizing to Eliza, Pickering says, “Does it happen to you, Higgins, that the woman has some emotions?” This exhibits that Pickering does have some respect for Eliza, although she is of a decrease standing than him, however he nonetheless says “the woman” as an alternative of Miss Doolittle, or Eliza which exhibits that he is aware of his place, and his place is increased within the social hierarchy than Eliza’s. On the finish of the play, Pickering begins to turn into extra like Higgins, patronizing Eliza, and performing like he was a lot increased above Eliza. A citation initially is “[very courteous] Received’t you sit down?” whereas a citation on the finish is “[to Higgins] Nonetheless, it’s been an important event, a triumph to you. Goodnight. [he goes]” This proves that he doesn’t hassle complimenting Eliza on how properly she has completed, and doesn't even say goodnight to her, solely congratulating and addressing Higgins. One of these habits is extra much like how Higgins acts, not Pickering.

By way of Eliza, Shaw exhibits how the decrease lessons dwell and react to how the higher lessons deal with them. Eliza is sort of radical and stands as much as what she believes in. Eliza has a really sturdy character and tries her greatest to face as much as Higgins, although he patronizes her and tries to guide her on. “Oh, we're proud! He aint above giving classes, not him… If my cash’s not adequate I can go elsewhere… It’s a lie: no person ever noticed the signal of liquor on me.” This exhibits that Eliza is insulted at Higgins’ accusation that if she was given cash she would solely spend it on alcohol, as an alternative of saving it or spending it on one thing worthwhile. The place Liza says “And if my cash’s not adequate I can go elsewhere” exhibits that if Higgins doesn’t need to assist her, or goes to over cost her, she is prepared to go elsewhere, the place she will likely be extra revered.

Mrs Pearce is center class, which is also referred to as working class. She is of a better standing of Eliza, however she is of a decrease standing than Higgins and Pickering. Because of this she will order Eliza spherical, and scold Eliza, however she should know her place when she is with Higgins and Pickering, as they're higher class, which means they're of a better eminence than Mrs Pearce. “[To Higgins] A younger lady needs to see you sir… [To Eliza] You realize you'll be able to’t be a pleasant woman inside if you happen to’re… soiled… exterior.” This citation exhibits that Mrs Pearce respects Higgins however is sort of strict in the direction of Eliza, displaying her class, above Eliza, however under Higgins.

Shaw highlighted the errors in folks’s concepts of how the decrease lessons lived, and highlighted all of the social prejudice, together with stereotypical views of girls and of the poor. As an alternative of writing a e-book in regards to the prejudice and stereotyping, Shaw used the characters in his play, Pygmalion, to place ahead his opinions. Pygmalion additionally confirmed that no matter class you had been in, whether or not you had been born wealthy or poor, you had an opportunity to succeed, as we will see with Mr Doolittle and Eliza, the place Doolittle is given cash by Ezra D. Wannafeller and turns into center class. When Doolittle ‘sells’ Eliza to Higgins for ?5, Higgins gives him ?10 and Doolittle says, “Ten kilos is some huge cash: it makes a person really feel prudent like; after which goodbye to happiness.” This proves that decrease class folks felt that in the event that they had been to have extra money than they wanted then they might lose who their persona and turn into a stereotypical higher class individual, having to remain with out the upper class’s boundaries and following the foundations.

Pygmalion did contradict the viewers’s views, as the kind of individuals who would learn Pygmalion or see it within the theater can be the higher class, as the center class and the decrease class wouldn’t be capable of afford it. The higher class had been outraged at Shaw’s accusations and portrayals of the higher class. “Pygmalion… scandalized it’s… audiences in 1914.” This citation is totally true; Pygmalion teaches us how the higher class ostracized the decrease class, and the outrageous and demoralizing method through which the decrease class had been handled. Pygmalion did problem the normal stereotypical views of the 20th century and the category system. Largely, Shaw explains to us by means of Higgins, the place Higgins is being condescending, contradicting and demoralizing in the direction of Eliza, together with the place he says: “I ponder the place… my slippers are! ‘Eliza appears to be like at him darkly; then rises out of the blue and leaves the room… Eliza returns with a pair of… slippers… Higgins…catches sight of the slippers… and appears at them as in the event that they has appeared there of their very own accord.’” This exhibits that Eliza is aggravated at having to fetch Higgins’ slippers for him when he doesn't even discover that she has introduced them to him.

Three Wholesome Wishes

If I had been to be fortunate sufficient to be granted three needs earlier than I die I might ask for: Eternal peace between nations, cities , states, and tribes of the world.

However who hasn’t? I do know/identified so many individuals I simply need them to recollect the most effective in me, to see my true colours. To see behind that Titanic loving woman, I'm identified to be. I simply need them to see me, not simply the surface shell of me most individuals see.

Cowboys vs. Tigers

There are tons of schools, but I've to selected one to get a superb training. Ever since I used to be a bit of child, I've at all times appreciated The College of Wyoming. Having lived there for 5 years earlier than transferring to Weiser, most individuals suppose I'm loopy for cheering on UW in all sports activities. Once we dwell in Laramie we went to round three Wyoming Cowboys video games, and regardless that they normally misplaced we had a good time. I've heard Clemson College can be a fantastic faculty however I've by no means been to any occasions involving them.

This is likely one of the causes that I'd need to go there. Taking part in all of those occasions can be a very enjoyable.

As acknowledged in Sperlings Greatest Locations Laramie is also known as , “The gem metropolis of the plains.” It's about 45 miles away for the capital, Cheyenne. The College of Wyoming is the one faculty in Wyoming. Laramie is perched at an elevation of seven,220 ft above sea degree. It’s early days typified the wild west days, and the jail inbuilt 1872 that was close to Laramie hald many well-known outlaws, together with Butch Cassidy.

There are various issues that my faculty will need to have. First, they will need to have athletic groups like observe and soccer, which Wyoming, and Clemson each have. Second, they want some sort of engineering program, and since each faculties have one, both faculty can be high-quality in that side. I'd additionally like to have the ability to get pleasure from nice actions only some minutes out of city.

Diabetes

The one method to actually study from an expertise is so that you can dwell via it your self. I used to be at all times instructed tales that impacted my life by I by no means absolutely understood the which means till I discovered it myself. The older I get the extra I discovered, however I'll always remember my first actual life’s lesson. Once I was in elementary faculty I used to be at all times instructed to not choose a e-book by its cowl. Once I was in fourth grade and I used to be recognized with sort one diabetes I noticed that that might additionally apply to individuals. While you take a look at an individual you could have no thought what the particular person is battling with or what they're going via. After being out of college for a few weeks I had an irrational worry that individuals would take a look at me completely different, choose, or be afraid of me. I used to be beginning to take a look at myself in a different way.

As I walked into my fourth grade class for the primary time since I acquired recognized I noticed no one was me any completely different. They nonetheless noticed the identical me. They requested me the place I had been however I simply stated I used to be sick, after which the topic was dropped. They'd no thought I used to be within the ICU studying a couple of illness I had by no means heard of, and studying the best way to make a life change and be capable of deal with the problem.

When there's problem in your life that's fixed that's there day by day you fairly study to just accept it, or combat with it, and I at all times needed to combat with it. As my buddies had been taking part in sports activities, I might at all times need to cease and test my blood sugar. The extra I needed to do it the extra I’d attempt to combat with it, however I noticed as I did this that I used to be more and more my duty realizing my physique’s indicators.
Even now, as a senior in highschool, I nonetheless ask myself why me, why did I get recognized? The extra I give it some thought, although, the extra I see it as a blessing. Once I was a freshman in highschool and I made the varsity swim crew, I instructed my coach that I used to be a diabetic and he was impressed. He instructed me he didn’t suppose a diabetic would be capable of deal with the follow. Diabetes made me liable for one thing most children and teenagers couldn't even think about coping with. It made me nearer to individuals I by no means thought I might be buddies with and folks I assumed I’d by no means meet that find yourself being my hero. I started educating individuals I barely know as a result of they wish to study what diabetes is. I educated my co-workers so now one household feels snug leaving there 5 yr previous diabetic with extra individuals I work with then simply bringing him there once I work. Once I was youthful, I take advantage of to go round hiding the actual fact I used to be a diabetic. I had an irrational worry of individuals judging me. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that diabetes has performed a key position in shaping the particular person I'm at the moment. Why not flip my expertise right into a constructive one?
At some point, once I was educating gymnastics class, this one boy who was newly recognized went as much as me and instructed me he gained’t let diabetes get in his manner. He stated he needed to be similar to me he stated I used to be his hero. That pushed to point out him what I used to be able to doing and show to him diabetes isn’t a illness it’s a life type, and you've got management of it. In order for you it to take over your life it'll nevertheless it gained’t if you don't let it. Now I consider it as I've diabetes, diabetes doesn’t have me. I’m not afraid to present myself a shot in public and conceal the truth that I'm a diabetic, as an alternative I enlighten the actual fact, in spite of everything it’s part of me and I don't remorse the particular person I've grow to be due to it at the moment.

Baseball

It was April Eight, 2008 when our baseball workforce misplaced our first recreation of the yr. The ultimate rating was 16-15. All of the runs the place scored off errors. I used to be so disgusted after the sport.
The sport began off with Farfield beatting us 2-1. Then when the second inning rolled round we the place beginning to hit. It began with a single hit by Reid Sanders. Then we had a pop up that superior Reid to second. After that huge Ty got here up and hit a double and scored Reid. The sport was all tied up. We completed that inning with 7 runs and we nearly acquired to bat round twice.
We had Jared Phillips on the mound pitching a two hitter with the sport at Eight-2 us. He acquired a 3 up three down that inning to depart the rating at Eight-2. After we acquired again as much as bat we had our sticks working once more.

We completed that inning with six extra runs and put the sport at 14-2.
When the fourth inning rolled round you might inform that Jared was dropping his contact on pitching. After we went to the bench the rating was 14-9. We acquired as much as bat and solely scored 1 run that inning to make the rating 15-9.
Since Jared was drained after pitching 4 innings the coach put me in. I didn’t ge an out till the fourth batter and the rating was now 15-11. The following batter that I confronted I acquired a strikeout. However that wouldn’t matter for lengthy since I walked the following batter and Nathan Value got here in and I went to 3rd. Often no person hits off Nathan however that evening they the place hitting the whole lot. We had an opportunity to finish the sport however we had a nasty hop on our shortstop that gained the sport for Farfield.
After we acquired completed with the sport we shook their arms and headed dwelling. Everyone was so mad on the consequence that no person wuld speak on the best way again dwelling. That's the reasonwhy the coach ought to look out for whats greatest for the workforce and never a person. We might have gained the sport if we might of had our starters in.

Holy Family

I particularly bear in mind the winter day once I was fourteen and obtained a brochure within the mail for the native Catholic highschool, Holy Household. I gave one take a look at it, laughed, and threw it away. It’s amusing to me now that I didn’t give that brochure greater than ten seconds of my time. Little did I do know that the subsequent weekend, I'd be digging by means of the rubbish can looking for that brochure; and that one 12 months after that, I'd be one of many faces on it.
I used to be in eighth grade on the time, going to the native center faculty. There wasn’t a query in my thoughts that I wouldn’t be attending the general public highschool the subsequent 12 months with all of my closest mates. It was a Friday evening, two nights after receiving the brochure within the mail. My neighbor requested me if I wished to go to a highschool basketball sport together with her that evening.

Having simply gotten right into a struggle with my finest good friend, I had no plans and accepted her provide. It was a playoff sport between Holy Household and one other faculty. I believed that since we had been in eighth grade, we must sit behind the highschool college students, however I used to be unsuitable. Instantly, children that we had by no means met had been pulling us into their part, cheering with us, and making us really feel like we had been part of all the things. I've by no means in my life felt like I used to be so accepted someplace. Surprisingly, it was probably the most enjoyable evening I had had in a protracted whereas. Holy Household gained the sport, and went on to win the state championship that 12 months. For me, although, it wasn’t in regards to the basketball. It was in regards to the life altering expertise that will permit me to develop into a greater individual.
The subsequent day I bought up and began wanting by means of the trash for the brochure that I so carelessly tossed out. When I discovered it, I introduced up the concept to my dad and mom, who thought I used to be joking. They had been confused with my sudden need to vary all the things that I had develop into so accustom to up to now few years; and as well as, I wasn’t even Catholic. By the point the college 12 months ended, although, I had efficiently satisfied my dad and mom to let me go to Holy Household.
I'm now coming into my senior 12 months at Holy Household Catholic Excessive Faculty. As I write this story, I consider all of the ways in which resolution has modified me. I had been so used to the identical mates and the identical experiences for therefore lengthy, that I didn’t notice there have been extra alternatives for me. I made a decision that I'd take a danger and depart behind my good mates and classmates I had identified for years for one thing utterly new. That danger paid off in so some ways. Sure, I bought a terrific schooling and made lifelong mates at Holy Household. What I discovered probably the most, although, is that you just can not coast by means of life pondering that you just aren’t going to make errors and that you just aren’t going to should put your self on the market. For me, it's a danger to place myself into an surroundings the place I've to satisfy new folks, make new recollections, and study from my very own errors. I now know that with each danger I take, I'll get a far larger reward.

Middle school or high school teacher, coach, counselor, or principle

When a baby is born, mother and father maintain him and lift him. He grows up with lots of love and care. After that he goes to highschool. That’s the place a trainer holds a hand of him. He learns to get able to face the true world now.

A trainer just isn't the one who teaches you science, math and many others., however a trainer teaches as much as apply the research to the true world. It was my coach who taught me that. I by no means was a great pupil on benches till my coach informed me, “It's the mind who thinks, not energy.” It modified my complete life. Now I'm keen to be a physician.

“At the moment we are going to run ten miles.” these had been the one few phrases he spoke within the early morning a 5. We use to run the miles after which play a little bit volleyball and go to bathe.

It was the evenings we labored our performs on, it use to be robust however we discovered loads via it. I take advantage of to get actually drained. The one the factor that stored me up was the spirit of our staff and coach. Even after we lose, he both stated, “It was a troublesome luck”, notably when it was a troublesome staff or would say, “This isn't how we play volleyball.” He nonetheless was an encouraging trainer. We additionally made the state that yr. It was once I was a freshman.

The rationale behind him is clearly not as a result of he made us run ten miles, nor as a result of the shouting we acquired from him, however as a result of he did what he needed to and by no means gave up on us. “If being my enemy, you'd turn into a staff, than I'm keen to take that step.” He would say once we made a scene. He was one in all my favourite academics of my complete college years.

Within the Hindu faith, a narrative was put via. One of many biggest academics, Droncharya was requested for his “guru dakshina” (one thing from the coed to reward the trainer) by one in all his finest pupil, Eklavya. He was the most effective in bow and arrow, and the trainer requested for his thumb. He fortunately gave it to him. I couldn't do this, however absolutely put this via the paper to the folks. There aren't any phrases for a trainer like my coach, merely wonderful. (if that’s sufficient)

The Witch and I

They have been storming the fortress – the enemy have been wearing a disguise and armed with little colourful rocks, that in the event that they made their manner into your mouth, they'd rot you from the inside-out. Whereas they slowly crept in direction of me in a swaying movement, I knew I had just one choice. I ripped by way of their arms, for this was my Kingdom to guard! The battle was brutal – I used to be thrown in each course but I bounced again up, earlier than the enemy had an opportunity to put their fingers on me. I lunged at my final foe, understanding that this was a battle to the dying. I lowered my physique to a ninety-degree angle, and sprinted head-first; BOOM! They went flying into the netting with shrieks of ache.

“Alix, for those who can’t play properly, I'll take you out of there!”

I used to be clothed in a Pooh Bear physique costume with a little bit black dot painted on my nostril (as a result of, in fact, all bears have little black dots for noses).

I made my manner out of the Leaping Fort and whizzed round to what smelled like a concoction of pizza, M & M’s, and cotton sweet. My costume celebration had proceeded as deliberate. Till the entertainer arrived, my mates and I needed to sit in a circle on the deck of my home, ready. Then, my mom uttered to our group, the three most terrifying phrases I might ever hear: “Witchypoo is right here!” She, or moderately “it”, made its manner into my yard; it was the life-size model of a kid’s worst nightmare…and I needed to take an image with it.

I'll admit although, I'm nonetheless a scaredy-cat. Trying again, I believe that I might be simply as scared now of Witchypoo, as I used to be again then, however c’mon, she was a giant-headed, full scale witch, and as a child, you aren't ready to satisfy fairytale villains! After I grew up, I got here to be taught that fictional characters can't harm me, however actual world characters nonetheless might. It was time to step out of my imaginary world, the place I pictured my life to be a “cartoon”. I might now not protect myself by pretending that the world is a contented place the place nobody might harm me. I had begun to grasp that some conditions are scary, but when I allow them to conquer me, I might by no means turn out to be the individual that I wished to be.

If given the prospect, I might return in time to talk with my seven year-old self, and inform her that I’m pleased with her as a result of she didn’t let “concern” get the most effective of her that day – she sat on the large witch’s lap and took the image. My “youthful” self taught my “current” self to not permit concern to manage your life, and whether or not it’s a fairy-tale nightmare come true or concern of the real-world, you need to preserve preventing, even after they let you know to play properly.
