I’m in the war of my life
At the core of my life
Out of time and there’s nowhere to run
How we remember, what we remember, and why we remember form the most personal map of our individuality.
A kind of…cute, but slightly disturbing, article in NYTimes Fashion and Style. It’s about men vs. guys, and things that each “kind” of male will and won’t do. Full article here.
Do men want to be guys? I don’t think men know guys exist, at least not as a permanent condition. They assume guys are boys who haven’t manned up yet.
Do guys suffer over not being men? Yes, sometimes. Then they want to talk to women about their feelings of inadequacy.
Do guys ever become men? Possibly. But I’ve met 24-year-old men and 64-year-old guys. It would take more than mere numbers to make that change: something a man wouldn’t talk about again.
I miss Glee.

Sorry, no Youtube embedding found, so you’ll have to click to get to the NBC link to watch. But it’s worth it! It’s kind of a ….Harvard shout-out, lol:
“Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism. For the record, it’s my least favorite quality. It doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard, and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.”
