So many weirdos on the subway, and I’ve finally made the cut. I’ve been riding it more often, both to get to work on time, and to get to classes and events.
I’m smiling because I’m in a sweet spot right now, and not because of my relatively boring new job. My bachelor nerd studio apartment-dwelling lifestyle hasn’t changed much since the late 90s, but I can safely say that my mid-30s have brought about the ability to leave the house feeling comfortable in my own skin. So if you’re in your 20s and wallowing in self-doubt, I can tell you it gets better. That is, if you continue to live like you’re in your 20s. If you get hitched and reproduce…godspeed sucka!
