Scrolled down my Facebook news feed and realized the only interesting thing about my life is where I am, my love for words, and nothing else.
Yesterday it was full of public displays of affection, flower bouquets, and as many snarky singleton martyr for every love confession. It’s a long weekend, so today the feed is full of exciting getaways; I’m writing this in the school library. Joy.
On the other side of the world, another wedding reception in the family just took place – no one new got married, it’s simply the third and last reception of Eldest Bro’s, which has spanned a year’s worth now – cue lots of smiling faces and pretty dresses.
On this side of the world, my stress level is expectedly skyrocketing over this still-unwritten term paper and the cloudy days aren’t helping with my writer’s emotional block, or rather it’s one of those days I just want to wax nostalgia bullshit. I love that term so much by the way, because in many ways that’s what I feel I do – exactly that.
Why do I feel perpetually stuck between time zones, neither here nor there?
Life is what you make of it, and today I am a blank slate.
Facebook sigh, you’re always such a farce. Hope y’all have a good Saturday.
