When are you "you"?
I never try to pretend I'm something I'm not, at least not in recent years. In my youth, I was always pretending to be cool, but I knew I was a wimpy nerd. Now, I'm a middle-aged, overweight, wimpy nerd, and I'm fine with that. There's no sense wearing a false persona anymore, because frankly, no-one really notices. Plus, it's easier to just be myself rather than maintain some kind of falseness.
