Changed Mind About

  • Spotify: the recommendation and sharing upside was worth the plunge
  • Oxford commas: I use them now
  • Living alone: no, I like roommates
  • Tariffs: just because all economists are against something, doesn’t mean it’s stupid; people far smarter than me thought about this; it may be worth higher consumer prices to up “good” jobs in America (yes, that means their purchasing power goes down)
  • Trump: came to appreciate him more; observed the total preposterousness of many of his critics; really felt how great it would be to have him as a teammate; find him funny now
