Random woman: Where do you live?
Me: I live in Redwood City.
Woman: Oh, nice! Do you live with your parents, by yourself, or with your boyfriend or husband?
Me: ...are those my only options? I live with my girlfriend.
And no matter what I was doing, another me sat in my belly, absolutely cold with terror over the question of my life.”
— James Baldwin, Giovanni’s Room
If you think both of the things feel right, then you won’t make a mistake!”
