At this point in time, I am disoriented by the perplexing mess of my room, listening to the song “Something I Need” by OneRepublic, and somehow wearing only one sock, but at least it’s the one with the cats on it from Forever 21, so I’m feeling okay.
At this point in time, my dad is snoring in the room next to me and my mom is downstairs feverishly catching up on an Asian drama, probably about some crazy love triangle that won’t get resolved until the seventy-fourth episode.
At this point in time, somebody is stealing eggs to feed their family and somebody is egging their neighbor’s house. Somebody out there is changing the world and somebody out there is changing themselves. There are girls becoming women, boys becoming men, and people realizing that they were born the wrong gender.
At this point in time, somebody is writing a book and somebody is reading one. There is somebody roaring with laughter watching the GOP debate and somebody starting a revolution. Somebody just finished all 236 episodes of Friends and somebody just swore off watching TV forever.
At this point in time, somebody is breaking tradition while somebody is making tradition. There is a man saying “I love you” to a man for the first time and a woman kneeling on one knee, asking her boyfriend to marry her. Somebody just said something they will regret for a very long time and somebody just said the most significant words of their life.
At this point in time, there is a child leaving his mother and a mother leaving her child. Promises are getting broken and promises are getting made. There is an argument breaking out between two people who don’t know how to love each other anymore and there is a woman who just found the perfect wedding dress.
At this point in time, somebody is saying something racist and somebody is saying something sexist and someone is losing faith in humanity and somebody is choosing to see the good in life. Somebody has no water left to drink and somebody’s village sinking. Somebody is saying let’s end this madness and this sadness. Let’s end it together.
At this point in time, there is a girl is losing her innocence and absolutely loving it and a girl losing her innocence against her will. Somebody is deciding not to kill themselves and somebody is beginning to love themselves. Somebody is feeling lonely in a crowd of people and somebody is feeling fulfilled by their independence.
At this point in time, I am writing a blog post about how I am feeling about the world at the moment.
