One of the things I like about having friends is that they can do stuff I wouldn't do and I can see how it works. It's a very low-cost way of expanding my horizons.

One of my horizons that maybe needs expanding is my vision of what adult life is supposed to look like. I think I have a fairly rigid, implicit idea of The Responsible Adult Thing, and it looks very placid, all the ducks lined up just so. But I know some perfectly responsible adults who have done all manner of wild things involving career changes and unexpected moves and extra degrees and family upheavals and visa struggles and houses bought and rented and sold again, and somehow they all seem to land on their feet.

Thanks to everyone out there who's done something crazy while I was watching. It's good for me.
