Growing up I got so used to being the precocious child who did everything early. But I feel like everyone’s catching up now. I’m meeting so many people who are younger than me, at least as smart, as well or better-educated, more accomplished in every way with the possible exception of career, who are more involved in various communities, have a better idea of what they want out of life, and seem to have a better grasp on how to be happy than I.
Bah. I feel old, and lazy, and run-down.
