“And today was a day just like any other”. 

I’m Ready by Jack’s Mannequin

I reached the point in the week where every day is starting to blend together. The faces, the routines, and the wake up calls are all the same.

I’m a firm believer that there is simply more to life than working, procreating and death. As Ferris Bueller stated “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”. As of late, I have been feeling like I’ve missed a whole lot.  Between two jobs, two YouTube channels, winter time blues, exhaustion, trying to find sleep somewhere and a social life; it’s been a long month.

When the days blur together, I turn to Jack’s Mannequin. Since the angsty high school days, I’ve been listening to Jack’s Mannequin regularly.

I’m Ready has always been the soundtrack for a long day.  The song starts with spoken word saying “and today was a day just like any other”. Something we can all relate too.

If I’m honest, the bridge is my absolute favorite piece to any song. You be the judge.

“I wake up to find it’s another, four aspirin morning, and I dive in.
I put on the same clothes I wore yesterday.
When did society decide that we had to change and wash a tee shirt after every individual use? If it’s not dirty, I’m gonna wear it.
I take the stairs to the car, and there’s fog on the windows.
I need caffeine in my blood stream, I take caffeine in the blood stream.
I grip the wheel and all at once I realize:
My life has become a boring pop song, and everyone’s singing along”.

Just remember, there’s more to life than meets the eye.

  1. Me gusta, I feel a lot of my teenage angst lately coming back to haunt me, not sure if it’s depression or blues.. any words of wisdom for a friend in need?

    • oh hello. I am sorry for the delay in response. I too have been feeling those blues kicking in. It’s been a long few months. I can tell you what has been helping me. Good company, focusing on myself, and sleep. It isn’t easy when you’re tired, or you’re always feeling depressed, but surrounding yourself with people who care. And making it a point to spend your time with those who care about you is so so so important. Stay strong friend.
