Because it’s been a sad day and I need some relief from the news, I’m making this a light post. So, in case you haven’t seen it yet, I’m going to take this opportunity to share the video, “32”, which is a parody of Taylor Swift’s “22.” Because it’s awesome. And because it portrays my life as it more or less is now (oh, except for the part about liking “Fifty Shades of Grey” – that’s not true for me). Actually my life has pretty much been that way since I was 24. But when I was 24, I felt like I couldn’t just stay at home on a weekend night (or at least not both weekend nights) and would make myself go out. But now that I’m in my 30s, there’s no internal pressure to do anything. I can go out or I can stay in and watch Portlandia on Netflix all night. Oh 30s, you’re so good to me!
