School Before and After

This is how I act on the first day of school. I’m all happy and excited to make friends.

And then…. this is how I act at the end of the school year, because I’m aware of how stupid my classmates are.

Don’t pretend you don’t know what I mean, I see what’s in your mind, and you agree with me ;)

It must be obvious… that there is a contradiction in wanting to be perfectly secure in a universe whose very nature is momentariness and fluidity.
