Old friends and familiar strangers

I don’t know why so many people read about the cooking misadventures
and existential crises of this 22-year-old girl, but I do know that it
makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when I hear not only from old friends
but also from familiar strangers. Thank you for sharing your insights
with this newbie who’s figuring out life for the first time!
