On aging

I see a lot of posts around Tumblr that boil down to something like, “Oh my God, what if I turn 30 and I’m still enjoying the childish shit that makes me happy now?”

I’m 42, and presently eating vanilla icing spread thickly on bagel chips with a knife while watching a video of a cat asking for treats in a human voice.

The best thing about getting older isn’t finally outgrowing the childish things that make you happy. It’s realizing that doing things that make you happy isn’t fundamentally childish.
