Daniel Bedingfield. Y'know, not knowing anything about the artist of this song, I always pictured a girl like Macy Gray, but with muscles like wire and indigo skin. So much of what we see on TV and in print is not that.

I can hear the social justice warriors sharpening their privilege at me as I type.

Here, let's play the I'm more socially aware than you game. Ready?

Have you ever worked the aid desk for political programs in the inner city? Do you regularly and consistently donate to help citizens of the Kingdom of Swaziland?

Can you find it on a map? No?

Then sit down, princess.

There, now that that's out of the way, let's talk about my inner life. I've gone through some kind of slow boil since last March and came out the other side over Megacon weekend. I don't even know what was wrong with me, exactly, only that I've had a personality change, definite and possibly permanent.

Honestly, though, I've been saying that my whole life.

It's just that this time, I'm not sure I like who I've become.

I think a lot of it is just my mother worrying, on top of my worrying, on top of what I wasn't willing to do For School anymore after five years of doing it for nothing other than a steadily diminishing sense of personal accomplishment, all of that curled together into a particularly nasty tarball.

Running off to do other things is all I ever do anymore.
