it’s a numbers game

Right now is probably not the right time to start re-reading The White Album, but it seems to me the only thing that makes sense, because it’s premised on the senseless of 1968.

Things are very irregular right not, there is no narrative to any of it. I am much more panicky than I’m used to – but with the death of Nipsey, the burglary around my workplace, my chronic stomach pains from 6th grade being back, my friends ongoing battle with street loitering (to no avail), the woman in Apartment 8 who’s panic I’ve internalized because of a possible break-in – I am scared all the time.

I am almost 30 and the stakes are higher and there’s more to lose and I am scared all the time. There’s no narrative to turning 30 either, being scared isn’t a story that gets told and passes, it just stays. Like old age.

Like being 30.
