Practically speaking, a life that is vowed to simplicity, appropriate boldness, good humor, gratitude, unstinting work and play, and lots of walking, brings us close to the actually existing world and its wholeness.

the best part about being in your 20’s is slowly caring less and less about what people think of you and surrounding yourself with good people

the worst is that I’m broke

Oh boy was last night the most random birthday ever. I went to New Amsterdam with Hillary from PSP, we got dinner and beers and talked about life. It was nice to catch up. Then I walked up to Brillobox to meet up with Cassie and Chien Yu, only to find out that it was closed, so we went to Industry. At Industry, I got this cocktail they called Verdigris that tasted almost identical to the signature drink from the Livefyre SXSW party, but made with white tequila. Talk about a nostalgia bomb. During the countdown to midnight, Cassie asked me what’s my last wish as a 22 year old, and I just said “To not be old at 23.”

My coworker got her Warby Parker home try-on sent to work, and she let the rest of us try on her glasses. This is the first/only pair I tried on and now all of my coworkers are trying to convince me to buy them. They told me these glasses were literally made for only me. Looks like one home try-on might turn into two customers.

What is the point in me being almost twenty-two if there is still so much for me to learn?

It is no surprise to me that hardly anyone tells the truth about how they feel. The smart ones keep themselves to themselves for good reason. Why would you want to tell anyone anything that’s dear to you? Even when you like them and want nothing more than to be closer than close to them? It’s so painful to be next to someone you feel strongly about and know you can’t say the things you want to.
