I keep waiting for the turning point. Every movie has one, so I find it reasonable that my life should have one too. Is it going to be big and dramatic – am I going to be standing on a hilltop shouting “As God as my witness, I’ll never go hungry again”? Or will it be quiet and desperate – will something benign like a sappy song on the radio make me suddenly realize (that’s the key, I think, the sudden realization) that something is terribly, terribly off in my life, ala Bridget Jones and the fear of eventual eating by dogs? Will it send me over the edge, or bring me back from it?
This message brought to you by the sudden realization that I am 20, it is midnight, and I am listening to Richard Marx.
