I had a moment of clarity tonight. Old roommate said something more than a bit mean about the way I left the room. Overreaction on substance, and the tone was completely out of line. I was starting to get upset about it, but I really don't have to.

Why?

1) I am an adult.
2) Living right against Manhattan. Just one subway stop away. I tend to underappreciate how cool that is.
3) Where they have honest to goodness brick and mortar bookstores open until 11 PM.
4) Also: Steak 'n Shakes.
5) And I have 1500 in the bank even after I paid the rent.

My point is, if I need the nerd equivalent of going out and buying myself a new hat, I am perfectly 100% entitled to do exactly that. Because I'm an adult, and if it harms none...

That's exactly what I'm going to do. It's what I was always going to do, but the knowledge I can is pretty awesome.

*hugs* It is so hard to combat that stinging feeling when someone's tone and/or words are mean-spirited, but wow, yes, you live in an amazing area and have a comfortable life... it's a good way to soothe the sting. And you have Steak-n-Shake in NYC??? I thought that was mostly a Midwest thing. Very cool (though if I were in NYC I wouldn't eat there because we have, like, five of them within easy driving distance of my house XD. I'd be hitting up all the amazing local hole-in-the-wall diners I hear about all the time... we don't have a *real* diner, the kind with homemade pies and worn lino and a stainless steel counter with swivel stools with cracked vinyl seat covers and a row of booths along the window, here and it's a constant source of sorrow to me).
