"People always say you should be yourself, like yourself is this definite thing, like a toaster or something. Like, you can know what that is, even. But every so often I'll have like, a moment, when just being myself in my life, right where I am, is like, enough."
I've been laid up with a torn calf muscle for the past week, which means I've watched a lot of boxsets. Best of all has been My So-Called Life, which, unlike many shows I used to watch as a teenager, was as good if not better than I remembered.
I realised a few things.
a) I am not over Jordan Catalano, and
b) I still have a lot to learn from a 15-year-old girl.
