The future

Many people think about the future. Maybe even all people. I do to. But when the future is unknown, what then? Is there a reason to think so much about it. Is there a reason to think even if we know the future?

We spend 90% of our lives doing something we do not want to do, only to look forward to the small moments of joy, like the recent Spring Break roadtrip I was on.

Anyway, this could be the start of a very long discussion of “carpe diem” but I find that slightly old. I just wanted to express my own fear. It’s growing. My US departure ┬áis fast approaching. I have only three months left before graduating, flying home and… then what? Well, a friend and I are in the process of discussing starting up a company together. Oh, that sounds cool, you might say. Well, yeah, but it is f-word scary.

So far, I am still able to sleep at night and I decided to be oblivious to the fact that 4 months from now, I have no idea what is happening. I know most graduating students have this thought, a thought that leads to the “I have to find a job” kind of thing. But I am not looking for a job and I don’t have much money to begin with.

So is the future bleak? I don’t know. But it’s happening soon. Just don’t think too much about it.
