The Journal of Various Worries is an object in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

The Journal of Various Worries is a book detailing the troubled thoughts of a number of villagers in Kakariko Village. As Impa is the chief of the Village, the book is located on a counter in her home. Link can read the book to get a glimpse at future side quests that will become available.

The first entry is by Cado, who signs it as "The Bow Master". It details how he decided to choose his precious Cuccos over his wife, Rola.[2]

Next is an entry by Dorian, who is concerned over the appearance of Pikango and his search for the Great Fairy Fountain.[3] Although he attempts to remain anonymous, he signs the entry as an "Anonymous Father of Two". As Dorian is the only man in Kakariko Village with two children, the signature exposes him.

After this, there is an entry written by Rola. She signs her worry as a "Lonely Arrow Girl" and notes how Link appears to be a fine archer, hoping he comes by her shop.[4]

Following Rola's entry is Lasli's, signed as "Struggling Shop Girl". She expresses her dissatisfaction with her life, despite her job keeping her occupied.[5] Lasli writes that Fireflies are the only thing to truly make her happy, but she has been banned from walking at night and finds herself despairing without them.[6]

The final entry in the Journal belongs to Paya, who signs the entry using the fruit that gave her her name, "Papaya".[7] She brings up the Sheikah Heirloom handed down in her family, writing that she's been hearing voices concerning its purpose.[8] Although she is fearful, Paya feels that this destiny is swiftly approaching.[9]
