Life’s Just Like That

All Posts, Mental Health, My 20s

A minute ago it was Thursday, but now the clock has struck midnight and it is Friday.


I don’t actually “work” (i.e., go into the office) on Fridays, so I can be particularly thankful that it is Friday. And I definitely am particularly thankful this week is done. For some reason, this week was angry at me. Everything I did this week seemed…more. More intense, more upsetting, more stressful, more exhausting, more boring.

So yeah, this week was a bit shitty. But that’s not the point. The point is that sometimes life’s just like that. Sometimes (often) life is awesome. It’s fun, and satisfying, and beautiful, and inspiring. Sometimes rainbows precipitate butterflies, puppies cuddle with baby hedgehogs, cats post their own videos, people ride unicorns to work, and other cool stuff like that. And then other times, for no particular reason, life is like:


It’s okay though. Life’s just like that. It has it’s ups and down but it always works out in the end. Here’s a graphical representation of life.

See, sometimes you’re on some next level high. You forwarded that chain email to 20 people, so your crush asked you out. Venus and Mercury aligned, so you got that job you were waiting for. Karma came around and was a bitch to that snob from yogalates. You were caller 9 on the radio. And other things of that nature. 

But other times, you find yourself halfway through growing out your eyebrows and eating butter and maple syrup doused blueberry pancakes at 1am because your family and boyfriend live in a different city, your roomies are away on vacation, you’re taking a course you really don’t want to take, and life is too expensive.

The important thing to remember when this completely-generalizable-and-not-at-all-describing-my-exact-life-right-now life situation occurs is that, in the end, it all balances out at an average mood. So you just gotta roll with the punches and keep on keepin’ on. When you’re up, ride the wave. And when you’re down, look life right in her indecisive eyes and say,

You got me this time, life.

But you better sleep with one indecisive eye open!
