I unliked Cory Booker on Facebook a few weeks ago. It just felt too disingenuous to follow his page and see the various inspirational posts of the day, knowing that I was no longer quite sure what to think of them. I got too caught up with the superhero mystique to look a bit deeper and wait before latching on to a fad.
BOSTON—Life has been prodding me in the general direction of "adulthood" for some time now. Sometimes it even succeeds. After all, I’m already like 19—and what better assurance of adult status could I have than the knowledge that I’m only two years away from legally purchasing alcohol?
You may find this kind of funny especially if you have previously met me, arguably the definitional opposite of what we might call a “frat bro”. The word “frat” itself carries certain connotations ap that register imediately in people’s minds (Dartmouth?). But living at PLP has actually been pretty chill and pretty awesome, for lack of less vague terminology.
