I recently had the pleasure of catching up with a friend whom I hadn’t seen since high school. We were quick to recount our adventures over the past three years. I asked him what he was up to since high school. He replied with the usual “Same shit, different day.” Furthermore he expressed his disdain for the city and how he couldn’t wait to move away, as long as then timing was right (timing is never right, just do it.) I was a bit heartbroken to see such a good person so bored with a mundane existence. Is this how everybody feels in Modesto? Is this the prevalent state of mind?
