Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
While talking with my mother, I asked whether maturity is just another word for giving up. She said no, that it is about self-control, and said other things and somehow I wasn't listening.
"Trying - Not Sure - Please Don't Make It So Hard - You're ripping me off guys!" That's a composite of some subject lines from help requests to Salon Premium.
