There’s A Silver Lining

I can’t speak for everyone. But 27 and single is like walking an emotional tightrope between overwhelming excitement for your friends, and the dreadful feeling of looking up at a scoreboard, your team trailing by 30, and it’s late in the 4th quarter.

A Hopeful Future

There’s a rebelliousness to not having it all figured out. It takes honesty and patience to test things and embrace failure.

“To live outside the law you must be honest”

-Bob Dylan, from Absolutely Sweet Marie

There’s also hope, hope that the best things in life are still in front of you. When I sit down to write, I can’t help but imagining my life as a world traveler, or hiking the English countryside, or partying in Greece.
