Thought #5: This American Life

Lately, I’ve been feeling a deep discontentment. And frankly, I ask myself constantly what is the source of my increasingly restless nature. Why am I waking up with my heart beating a thousand miles a minute or feeling random bouts of nausea (no, I’m not pregnant)? According to our beloved apocalyptic WebMD, these symptoms are attributed to anxiety. I am feeling anxious. I have to let that sink in… because for the longest time I would pride myself in handling stress well. Five exams in one day? Pfft, I got this, there are bigger fish to fry. Gym, classes, meeting with a professor, work, and a pile of coursework?

What about now?

Even though most posts/submissions on my blog may have a particular political view or opinion, I encourage aaaalll opinions to contribute. As I’ve probably mentioned a trillion times, the blog is made to educate and promote viewers.

Therefore, I welcome and encourage differences, so please, send them my way!

Ta-Ku // Songs to break up to // Songs to make-up to

02/05/17 – 12 pm – Paris, France

Here it is, Sunday night.
The few hours left until I go back to work are quickly vanishing.

I could use these precious hours to sleep. Tomorrow I take a plane at 7 am. Meaning that at 5:30, I’ll be toasting bread in my kitchen. I’ll be back home at 10 pm.

But I’m not sleeping yet. I’m listening to Ta-Ku.

Music to break up too.

 

Break up with Paris. Break up with work. Break up with reality. Break up with people.
30 mins of calm, 30 mins of evasion. 30 mins when Ta-Ku guides my mind a step away from reality. To contemplate.

Songs to make up to.

30 mins to make up with reality. Make-up with people. Make-up with work. Make-up with Paris. To realize how lucky I am to have a job I love, to live in the most beautiful city in the world and, the most important, to have people who care about me.

Here it is, Sunday night.
I may lack a bit of sleep tomorrow morning, but I’ll wake up motivated as ever.

This ride is smooth. Give it a try.

Next Sunday maybe I’ll choose another driver away from reality.
