    There are no safe spaces for Duke fans.

    Duke fans need to check their privilege.

    ^ THIS IS WHAT I MEAN.

    I am only a Duke fan because of my relatives. People like me don't need to be hated on in the same way as people who like Duke for weird and potentially racially-charged reasons.

    / and yes I know you're teasing

    One road leads to monotony, apathy but great potential and reward. The other road leads to more excitement and fulfillment, but little to moderate reward. My head desperately wants the former, but my heart desperately wants the latter. Which one will win out?

    Are any of the roads interstates? Does one of them have toll booths?

    Ha. One is a key to a vast interstate but with a few additional toll booths and the other is more of a straight shot to a more comfortable, humble country road.

    I'd pick the humble country road while being entirely ignorant of what this is supposed to be a metaphor for.

    Listening to Vivaldi at work right now instead of the usual house/trance mix, and wow, this is God. I've always been into Classical music but for whatever reason, I haven't listened to it in months!
