- There are good reasons you always feel 20 percent younger than your actual age.
One postulated that it is the age when his “major life questions/ statuses reached the resolutions/ conditions in which they’ve since remained.” This made sense to me, the “me” who sees herself as being in her early 30s.
I’ve been listening to more electronic music lately, and googled what do DJs do, marvelled at how much the Scottish electronic music industry is worth, read about how house exploded in Scotland. Which then made me want to go back to Glasgow.

In my head: is the page torn, is it glued back later, oh my goodness.
