We were both waiting at the bus stop. A car slowed down, and two guys were calling out the window to her. They were speaking Bulgarian, and I didn’t think they looked very nice, but she jumped up and ran over. After they drove off, I asked her, “Do you know them?”

“No, not really.”
“Well, I hope you didn’t give them your phone number.”
“Oh no! They gave me theirs, but I’m already deleting it.”
“Smart girl!”
“Yes, I’m studying criminology.”
“Do you like it?”
“Yes, it’s SO interesting! But so many people are also studying it, so I don’t know where I’ll be able to find a job.
At least I hope I can find an apartment by myself so I don’t have to keep living with my mother!

I saw Miryanna again yesterday. She has changed her major, and is feeling a little down about it. I know the feeling. Life changes are always a challenge. One thing to remember: The people you know are more important than your skills. Good luck, Miryanna!
