If I could compare my life right now to any inanimate object, I would choose a bottle of shampoo.
The answer is yes. Yes, you read that right. I am consciously comparing myself to a large bottle made of plastic and filled with ingredients such as ammonium chloride, sodium laurel sulfate, and polyquaternium-10.
The only difference between me and a bottle of shampoo, however, is that I don't have time to sit on the shelf in your shower all day. I know what you're thinking. Don't flatter yourself, chances are that I wouldn't choose your shower anyway.
It's quite fitting, really.
Lather: I wake up. I go to work...or...school. I come home. I do homework.
Rinse: I try to forget about all the stuff that could cause a potential anxiety attack and wash all of the... "crap"... out of my system. Figuratively. Literally. I go to bed.
Repeat: I do it all again.
This story is comparable to that one time my iPod got stuck on repeat and I listened to the same song for 6 hours on a plane ride. Thank you, brain, for the random insertion that has absolutely nothing to do with shampoo.
So, the next time you think about asking me what I've been up to... Stop. Think, "shampoo." Then you can save us both time by not asking such an absurd question and just telling me a funny story instead. Or... OR! you could do something crazy and attempt to make my life a little bit more invigorating. You decide. Until then, you can find me stuck on a cold tile in the corner with soap.
