Exceptionalism and its exceptions

It’s not unique that I am an exceptionalist. 

Most people are. My generation is famed for it. And people with my disorder …

But while we can’t all be special snowflakes, it’s hard to have self-esteem without at least a sprinkling. 

My special talent is choosing just the right media at just the right time. And while I’ve been grappling with finding a happy medium of exceptionalism, I chose Weeds. 

Oh Nancy Botwin you beautiful goddamed narcissist. Eight seasons of entering the tunnel, just to see what’s on the other side. 

Too bad applying to Physician Assistant school doesn’t seem like a tunnel. 

So how to be special … in moderation?
