Before I Abort On My Way-Too-Promising Weekend

by Xenia Makridou

So here’s some food for thought before I abort on my – hopefully, somehow – life-changing weekend. Are our parents trying to protect us from things that are inevitable to live? Are they simply misunderstanding the role of the school? Because if you ask me, I’ve learned about life a little bit at a time every time I was outside the school and not in it. “In school, we learn the lesson and then take the test. But in life, God often gives the test and then we learn the lesson.” I think there should be a balance between the two, you know? Because once you’re out there, it’s a hard place, and it’s dangerous, but it’s full of opportunity and wonder.

Enjoy the weekend!
