Tonight I have a violin lesson, except this one is different from others. I will be watched by my friend and her mom, and they will watch to see whether they want my friend to have my violin teacher as her teacher, too. As soon as I learned this, I thought, I need to practice violin extra today! And while I know I haven’t practiced in a few days, I wanted to practice even more than I really needed to. As soon as I realized this, I thought, Why? I mean, why do I need to practice extra? Why do I want to show off? And then, Why does mankind yearn to be the best? Why do we care? That is my question. Why do I care?
