B Birthday S Shakespeare

I turn 20 today. Like all birthdays, it’s just a number. I’ve lived two decades. The concept of two decades didn’t really hit me until I read the syllabus of a Shakespeare class (taught by Professor Teskey – this post is credited to him) this late afternoon. Apparently, Shakespeare’s writing career was also two decades. What is remarkable about Shakespeare’s career as a playwright isn’t just the short duration of two decades (always begging the question what have I been doing with the two decades of my life) but rather the consistency.
