Just a side note, I don't think any previous generations are harder as such, they just dealt with the situation at hand, just as you will if it comes
to it. We're all just people, all the same, the only difference is the way we see things and handle things. And there's a miriad of ways to do that.
Just remain calm in any situation which gets a bit "edgy" and you will make better decisions. I've had some crazy on the spot situations to deal
with in my life, as have most of us. You've just got to remember to keep your cool, thinking clearly in hectic situations, it helps to keep your head
nice and level. This goes for anything, if you ever find yourself getting all worked up and stressed from school/work/any life situation, just
remember one of the best ways to calm down, breathe nice and deeply. If your brain gets starved of oxygen (you get very short in breath when worked up
and angry/scared) then it isn't able to think at top capacity. It's amazing how a few intakes of breath can calm you and help you handle anything
life throws at you. You'll be ok dude, learning survival skills is a great idea, even if thetre is no great happenings going on. It's just nice to
know that you can hold your own if you have to. You're young, you have all the time to get lots of information into you as possible.
Someone said earlier, learn as much as you can. This is top notch advice, you should always be learning, wether you're 16, or 96.
