Life is Unremarkable
And extraordinary at the same time.
When I was 20 I thought I’d be married by 25, have a college degree, a job I liked and maybe a kid or two. Maybe a cool car. A nice house. I thought every weekend would be exciting, most nights would be enjoyable and the rest of my existence would be filled with parties. I saw life as a series of big events, a steady stream of highs, a timeline of notable occasions.
It’s not like that at all.
It’s mostly filled with questioning, trying, failing, waking, working, day-to-day activities…
