for to a greater extent than or less reason, this doesn’t bother me every bit much every bit I idea it would when I was younger. In fact, it doesn’t bother me at all. When I was still struggling to figure my life out, I genuinely resisted growing upward because it made me experience inadequate. How could I still go thus lost when I was 23, 24, 25 years old? And then, in i lawsuit I became to a greater extent than confident inwards who I was together with where I was headed, that fright simply went away. I dearest the historic menses that I am, together with I’m pretty certain I ever will, whether that historic menses is 30, 50, or 85.

I picked upward a frozen pie from the co-op on my way abode from yoga, together with every bit presently every bit I was out of the shower nosotros sat downwardly to pie together with scotch, together with watched John Stewart mercilessly mocking our political system. It was grand.
