Living in New York means your freakish obsessions are no longer grounds for involuntary commitment at Bellevue. Instead, you become the subject of magazine interviews ("One Is The Loveliest Color") that spin your mental health issues as quirky. A red flag that your cute little preoccupation has taken a nosedive into stone cold crazy? When you start saying things like "Wearing blue for me is like being in a dream all day long...It touches every realm of life, from cosmic to future." These people may be nuthouse-worthy, but now I’m wishing I’d chucked that English degree for a lifelong pursuit of “color theory.”
