And the World Spins Madly On

Sorry for like another post that is not super awkward and embarrassing about things that happen in my life. This will be short I promise.

This song, and title of this post, has always been a favorite of mine. In particular I really like that line, “the world spins madly on.” Recently though, I’ve really begun to realize how true that is. I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately, a “quarter life crisis” if you will. And so when I’m alone and sulking in my own misery I kind of forget that people are out there living their lives. Without me. And I’m missing out on all that. So I’ve really been making a concerted effort to try and run with the world instead of against it.

We are all at different places in our lives. I’m 24. I know people my age who are engaged, married, have kids, are in medical school, law school, working at some real life job. But I also know people still finishing their undergrad degree, living at home, temping, or just traveling the world for a bit. And none of that is wrong. There is no “right” for this time in my life. And as hard as it is for me to come to terms with it, I’m going to make sure to try.


This is my all time favorite cartoon, and reading this particular strip makes me cry every single time. I really love what it says. 🙂

Happy Monday everyone!! Hope the week just flies by!

  1. I’m still dealing with this at 27. Sometimes I feel like I have it all figured out, then I hear other people are experiencing completely different things… and I’m like should I being doing that? Does anybody think what I’m doing is okay? Should I become a school teacher like all my high school classmates? It’s really the worst, but it’s human.
    And I think we are all going to be alright 🙂
