Why do we worry so much about how life will turn out so far down the road? I mean, for example, they drill college after graduating from highschool into our brains the minute we step foot into middle school. We're only 11 or 12 when we first get to middle school yet, BAM college.. which will happen when we're about 17 or 18. Do we really need 7 years to prepare for college? Is it that big of a deal in life? I know it's important. but it basically becomes what defines us in life. Whether you go to college or not. Where you go to college. etc. Where you end up out of college. Blah blah blah. All the clicks of highschool on a larger (slightly less dramatic and immature) scale.
