I am finally on the path to becoming the artist I know I can be.
Personally, I thought Holden was an irritating narrator.
He said to his friends, “The first is personal and you’ll find boring. The second is anecdotal and you’ll find it infinitely more interesting. which do you wanna hear first?”
“The more interesting thing.” one of his friend replied
“Yeah.” another said.
“I saw Miley Cyrus today, she came into the Starbucks I’ve been working at.” He said
“No fucking way.” his friend said. “How was her hair, she lives in philadelphia?! Did you talk to her?”
“No I didn’t talk to her.” He said
“Oh” one of his friend said, sounding disappointed. “What’s the other thing.”
“I’m in love.” he said.
“With who?” His friend asked.
“That’s gay.” someone said
“Totally lame” another said, “what did Miley Cyrus order at Starbucks?”
“Iced Venti Skinny Vanilla Latte.” He said, sighed and sat down.

Your youth may be gone but you’re still a young man.
Can anyone tell me what “and in that moment, I swear we were infinite” actually means? I assume it’s just something that’s easy to latch on to because it sounds complex and intelligent and it’s memorable. But in the context of what is happening it doesn’t really fit if I recall the book correctly the protagonist is high as shit off weed brownies when he says it. It just seems kitchy to me.
