Absolutely everything.

The other night, Nick and I were in the car and could not decide on music, so we opted for iPod roulette (a way better term than shuffle). We got a pretty good cross-section of my life -- a little Eminem, a little Hanson, a little Usher, a little Jason Mraz...thug life, right? Anyway, the Jason Mraz song that came on was "Absolutely Zero," a song I hadn't heard in a while but of course spoke right to me. It's sort of amazing how a song that you've heard 500 times that came out almost 10 years ago can trigger something in you that didn't even exist the last time you heard it. Jason's words do this to me on the regular. It's why I consider my relationship to him a spiritual affinity (minus the part where I don't know him in real life). Anyway, here's the song. Listen to it and know me.

Neither one of us deserves the blame, because opportunities moved us away.
It's not an easy thing to learn to play a game that's made for two (that's you and me) the rules remain a mystery.
See how it's easy?
And who am I to say this situation isn't great?
It's our time to make the most of it. 
How could we ever know that this would happen to me? Not that easy, no.
