When I was young, maybe seven or eight, my family went two provinces east to visit friends. Since we were visiting a sleepy little town (and since it was the 80s) my parents told me to take my bike and go for a ride while they caught up with their friends.
Recently I learned the meaning of the surfing phrase “dropping in.” Basically, if you decide to catch a wave that someone else has already put dibs on, you're dropping in. It's really rude and against the unwritten (but much spoken of) code of surfing etiquette.
Sometimes the choices we have to make keep us up at night. And rightly so! Major life decisions like where to go to school, whether to marry, or what career path to follow should be taken seriously. However, losing sleep and anxious thoughts will only make things worse.
