When I look out of the window in my bedroom, I see my next door neighbor's yard. Sometimes after school gets out, or in the early mornings of summer days, I see the boy that lives there running around with his friends. They play and enjoy the freedom of no homework, and constant fun as small children. I envy them. Now that I'm in high school, there always seems to be something to worry about, and never seems to be enough time. I know that as an adult it will only get worse, yet I cannot wait until I have my own children and can set them free in the backyard for an afternoon. When that time comes I'll finally be able to rest my feet for an hour or so. But until then, I'm constantly working my way through the stacks of homework and to-do lists. And, well, that's life.
