Okay, so it’s a paraphrase. I don’t think Simon and Garfunkel would mind..or even care.
I try so hard to not make each and every post doom and gloom. Lately it seems that they are, though. I’m struggling with apathy. Talk about your oxymorons.
I was doing one of those quiz thingies on facebook a few minutes ago and one of the questions was the standard “where do you see yourself in 5 years.” I used to love that question. I had so many plans. So much hope for my future. Even when I knew things were hard or bad or even impossible I had that hope that somehow things would work out and my future would be good.
I don’t feel that anymore.
I think that in five years I’ll be sitting in exactly the same place I am right now. Financially challenged. Emotionally distant. Alone. Lonely. Sad.
I have no hope. And I’ve given up on my life. I’m just waiting to pass to the next one. I’m tired of this one.
