3. About letting the weeds grow in my yard.
4. About not returning phone calls.
5. About needing quiet space and time.
6. About having lees than perfect technique on the violin.
7. About not saving the world.
8. About being sensitive--physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.
9. About telling my parents to fuck off.
10. About not believing in god.
