“If you were young and mystified in America you were supposed to find something to be a part of.  That something had to be either shocking or rowdy, for within the brouhaha you’d find yourself, be able to locate your Self…”

~Marisha Pessl, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, p. 282

This reminds me so much of one of our (my group of friends and I) favorite anthems from high school.  Rancid’s punk-ska song, “Journey to the End.”  Both were true for me.

“There wasn’t always a place to go, but there was always a need and an urge to belong.”

~Rancid, “Journey to the End”
