1. On what is sure to be the first of MANY age-related crises in the next three months…in 10 years, will I still be able to teach Pop Culture? Or is there something ridiculous about a 50 year-old white spinster preaching the gospel of hip-hop?

3. Can you believe that three years ago, I moved into a brand-new apartment and a week later drove to Massachusetts–by myself–for seven weeks? Stop and think about that for a second…I’m really kind of badass, is what I get from that.
4. What are the Vegas odds on me actually making it through the next two days? I’m gonna go with 100-1.
