Working in academia. I hope to work in either academia or some research place when I graduate in 14 years time.

Springsteen's written about New York numerous times. New York City Serenade, Incident on 57th Street, Jungleland off the top of my head...

I'm desperate for it to work out, as I have no fucking clue what else I would do.

The worst part is, I want to stay living in Australia but my field is New Zealand history.

Oh, and in great news, I got pulled over today! My first RBT!!! It's only taken 16 years of driving to get the police to notice me.

Surely there'd be a good need for NZ history here?

You should've been going to a fancy-dress party. The one time my mother ever got pulled over in New Zealand, she and a group of friends were going to a fancy-dress party in ridiculous get-up. The police officer laughed so hard at the sight of them that he let her go without as much as a warning!

Yeah, though I'd say the song is more inspired by than about, at least if you compare it to New York. But then again, everything on ATYCLB is like taking a sledgehammer to nuance.
