Before I took the piano lesson, I hesitated much because I hadn't had any experience with any musical instruments until I was 17. However, if I learn to play it later , it might be too late, and I decided to stick my neck out.

There was a girl who steal classmate's school supplies. One day, she was caught in
the act of stealing by me. So she wanted me to overlook it, but I don't want to
stick my neck out for her.

As I was walking across the street I thought I saw a wanted man accused of murder. I tried to ignore what I just saw and kept telling to myself that I should not stick my neck out for something that is none of my business.
