Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Reality Check

I’m kind of going through a bleak time here, and I’m really struggling to come up with something interesting. Struggling to come up with anything really.

But you don’t just give up because something starts to get hard, do you? I mean, we all struggle with life at times, don’t we? I’m asking rhetorically, ‘cuz I already know the answer. Yeah, we do.

So I’m soldiering on. Life will get better again, or at least we’ll make some version of it that seems bearable. This fucking pandemic is part of my problem – it’s a moment in history that’s a turning point for human culture. Nothing will ever be the same again. What exactly this means is anyone’s guess, but right now, here in the U.S., it all looks bad.

If humans are highly adaptive creatures, we’re failing the test.
