I chose the wrong college.

I had a scholarship to George Washington University. I was accepted to UC Santa Barbara. But because I was rejected by my first choice, Brown University, I threw it all away and chose the University of Rochester. Why? Because Rochester was the name of Jack Benny’s butler/chauffeur/house cleaner/cook/errand boy and Jack Benny was my favorite comedian.

A thank you letter to me

Why are you such a fuck-up?

Why are you the way you are?

Who do you think you are?

I hate you.

For the past 35-ish years, I have hated myself. I was loath to look at myself in the mirror. I did everything I could and then some to change me so the world would accept me, like me, even love me.

And why I need to finally start listening to me.

How many books can I read in a month?

I love to read is actually an understatement.

Books have always been a part of my life. Everyone in my family read to me as a child. By the time kindergarten came around, I was already reading at a 2nd-grade level.
