Lately, my day has been starting with WTF Anu. WHAT ARE YOU SAYING. Is that what you really think about yourself and what you want to do with your life? Just kidding- that’s what it SHOULD have started out with, instead of just being in a funk and accepting the heresy that my brain tells me, about myself and my life, as absolute truth.
Turns out, I’m my own biggest dream crusher. Of all time. Kind of like Candy Crush, but much more sinister, and less fun. My problem is that now that I’m heading home, I remember all the things that everyone says about how I’m making (X,Y,Z) decision totally wrong. And I’m screwing up my life. And I’ll regret it forever.
Also I’m probably killing puppies. Not really, but the way they look at me, you’d think I was.
I have mostly realized that I don’t really have an absolute plan. If I say anything otherwise, it’s mostly lies. Apparently, this goes against nature, mankind, God, and Monday Night Football. I’m only assuming this, because it seems to be heretic to say these things. It is unfathomable to not have a, come hell or high water, this is what I will do plan.
And by plan, maybe because I’m a woman, or maybe because my ovaries expire soon and I can’t get a refund or whatever, my plan needs to include a man. A man plan. Hell, at this point maybe a woman would be ok. I’m not really sure. It doesn’t matter. Point is, significant others need to be involved in this plan. Because I won’t be able to procreate and make sure our human species doesn’t die out. Because we are close to extinction and me spreading my genes will save us from destruction. Oh wait. That’s a different Will Smith movie. Right.
Which begs the question, WHY AM I TRYING TO ANSWER QUESTIONS WHICH I HAVE NO ANSWERS TO?! And more importantly, why is my brain beating me up for not being able to answer these questions? It’s like those kids that just keep asking why all the time. At first it’s cute, then it makes you think and you are happy to think about it, but after the 5th why, you’re just over it. It’s really unproductive and annoying. I’m at the 6th Why. Now it’s just tiring.
I can’t tell you why I choose to do the things I do. And more importantly, why do I need to? And why do I feel inadequate for not having answers? Does that make these decisions wrong? No. I think it just makes them hard to explain. Two very different things.
That’s the hard thing about hard things. Sometimes they don’t make sense. You just need to jump and hope you fly. And if you don’t, know that you won’t die, and you can try again tomorrow.
After all, isn’t tomorrow another day or something?
