Not one of the people has looked at me this entire trip
I’ve done my share of staring at each of them, struggling to understand that behind that face, that skin, there is a human mind, a presence that is the center of its own universe.
“Do I feel ready? Hell no… I expect I will have to give a speech in front of everybody”
This time – one year ago – I was preparing for my final day at the office. I was worried about giving a speech.
I had decided to throw everything away, go back to university to finish the study I had started and given up on five years prior.
“Enthusiasm eludes me, how will I handle university?
It seems like a lifetime ago, but it has only been one year. The speech went alright by the way… I had headphones in and the entire office had collected behind my desk without me noticing… After that I just started worrying about how I would handle University…
University was fine too. I managed to do much better than I ever thought I could.
I suppose all the worrying is pointless in the end… with all the days that have passed it certainly seems that way.

When each day seems to be monotonous repetition of the last…
It can make you pretty miserable, feeling as though nothing is ever going to change for the better, it can be hard to shift your outlook by staying in the situation.
Sometimes the only way to break into a new phase is to literally get out of the place you spend all your time in.
Last weekend I got in the car and drove away from the town I live in.
It was only a temporary get away, but the fresh country air and (seemingly) never ending desert roads made short work of my clouded and blocked mental state.
I would recommend a mini adventurous escape to anybody feeling stuck in a rut or a bad mental phase. Even if all you can manage is a day trip to somewhere new, or even a place you haven’t been in a long time.
