April 13th, 1977
My major immediate objective is this– the tediously produced budget which I have plotted through July allows to pay for my sofa and chairs and enter July on an even keel as far as bills go.
My ultimate objective for this year is to have my own apartment and to lead a very self-contained contented life on my own.
I remember a conversation a long time ago with Sonja. Her opinion was that there is a definite turning point in your life when you realize that you are not going to change the world. A time when you become more relaxed with the actual details of your world and stop putting so much energy into your expectations of fame and fortune.
