Monotony

What is it about real life that changes us so much? It sometimes feels like we enter this new dimension where everything stops being different. Too afraid to explore our desires, too lazy to pick up the phone, too lonley to be happy. It seems we are reaching a point where life almost stagnates, suspended in a moment of continuous monotony. And we fight to break out, by going to parties, by changing jobs, by applying to gradschool, by breaking up and getting back together. But in the end, when the lights have faded, it seems our stories never change. You are always coming back to the same promises and threats, I find some new to hope to shatter, always failing to notice those who hope for me.

I love the piece on monotony. It rings true. I'm at a point in my life that reflection is chronic and painful. Anyway, that's a whole story in itself. Nevertheless, I questioned the word monotony when I came back from Europe. Maybe I want more. DAMN HUMAN NATURE!!!! Never happy are we. Hey Madalina, just wanted to say I had a great weekend up in Philly at both places and it was a blast.
