and remember....


take wrong turns. talk to strangers. open unmarked doors.
and if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they're doing.

do things without knowing how they'll turn out.
you're curious and smart and bored and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. there are so many adventures that you miss because you're waiting to think of a plan.
to find them, look for tiny interesting choices.

and remember that you are always
making up the future as you go.
