    On Friday one of my co-workers says at about 4pm "I can't decide if I want to go get a coffee or not. What do you think?" I tell her that I'm not really the best person to ask about this since I don't drink coffee very often and I never drink it in the afternoon because I don't want to be awake all night. She looks at me funny and says "It's Friday! Why do you need to sleep tonight? You have the rest of the weekend to do that." I know I used to think things like that, but that mentality is so far removed from me now. I can't relate it it at all anymore.

    She then proceeded to ask me if I knew any good clubs or karaoke bars in the area. Uh no... I was never the right person to ask about that.

    I've started seeing major choices as a conscious decision to not do all the other things. I frame choosing to invest significant time and energy into A as the loss of the opportunity to do B - Z. I'm also painfully aware that I should have been framing it this way from the start because it's always been true, you just don't realize it until you've already invested most of your potential. When you are young, you feel like you have time to change your mind about these things. I can no longer choose to become an astronaut or a doctor...there isn't enough time left in my life.

    I hate a tree

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

It sheds bark year round that my dog always wants to eat. I have to drag her away from the damn thing six times a day because I walk her three times and it's in front of our domicile. The only birds that live there are mockingbirds. Aggressive loud fuckers who imitate car alarms at three in the morning. I've considered becoming an alcoholic on the off chance that I'll eventually wrap my car around this damn tree. It ain't worth the oxygen, believe me

    Urban trees only last twenty years nowadays, if you havent witnessed its birth and death, no reason to feel old.

    The increased prevalence of autism also makes me feel old.

    I've felt physically old since I was 25. I don't feel old yet mentally (32), though maybe others would think I am.
