I’m twenty.  Not sure how it happened; just kinda snuck up on me.

…Is it possible to alienate oneself from oneself simply by continuing to exist?  Because I think that’s what just happened to me.

…Don’t want to keep thinking about this right now.  I’mma go play La Pucelle Tactics instead.  There’s less critical self-scrutinizing in that.

And maybe brush my teeth.  Best to get that out of the way at five AM.

    Happy Birthday, Khalil! I’m so happy you wrote on your blog! I can’t believe you’re 20-whoa. As I was reading your entry a couple days down I remembered this quote that I heard again in the movie Akeelah and the Bee:

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    I love you and I’m glad you were born!
