Kuto had always been a worrywart. It was one of the things his friends and family loved about him, but also one of the things that made him exhausting to be around at times. He was always worrying about something – whether it was his grades, his relationships, or even just what he was going to wear tomorrow. But lately, Kuto’s worries had reached a new level. He was now worrying about his future, and what it might hold for him.
He had graduated from college a few months ago, and since then he had been living in Portugal with his girlfriend. They were both originally from Mexico, but they had met while studying abroad in college and decided to stay together after graduation. It wasn’t an easy decision – especially for Kuto’s parents – but they eventually came around and supported their son’s decision.
Now that he was settled in Portugal, Kuto should have been happy. But instead, he found himself filled with anxiety about the future. What if he couldn’t find a job? What if his relationship didn’t work out? What if he got homesick? These were the kinds of questions that kept him up at night now, and try as he might, he couldn’t seem to shake them off .
