Welcome to the age of 25. What you may think is a mid-life crisis is in fact just the beginning of a real world survival of the fittest. Life can be extremely hard, but it can be extremely fun and interesting at the same time. As of late, I have realized that life is about taking mundane details and turning them into something bizarre and worth it.
A bowl of chicken flavor Ramen noodles and a corn dog with mustard – had me feeling like I had hit rock bottom. Sitting on my unfurnished living room floor eating off of a plastic tub top – had me feeling like I had hit rock bottom. Calling to bum $30 bucks from my mom – had me feeling like I had hit rock bottom… But apparently I haven’t. Shit could be worse. You have to survive though.
I am thankful for everything and every non-thing. I recently went home to Detroit to visit my family and friends. That short visit gave me so much hope for my future. Sure things are a bit less than favorable at the moment, but they aren’t bad. At all. I have my new place, just finished my first quarter in grad school, got a new job, I’m not pregnant (lol hi mom), not on drugs, got a couple internship opportunities (in my field of study!) on the table, etc..
My day (read: month) started off pretty shitty. But sometimes you have to look past shitty shit and move on. Everything can happen in a day, but what matters most is how you react to each occurrence.
