I wonder if it's just normal that sometime in the mid-twenties, we all get so... numb. It's like the world's going by on fast-forward, and I'm standing and gawking at it, unable to do a thing. All around, people are going places, doing things, and I'm sort of wondering "how do I get a piece of that?"
In particular, I feel so disconnected with life as I knew it, just a few years ago. I don't do the same things I used to, don't listen to the same music, don't eat the same food. I don't know anybody now who I knew back then. The scary part is not that I don't know them or keep in touch, just that I don't feel the need to. Or to go back to the things that I used to be so passionate about. I wonder if this is normal, or just a byproduct of being caught up in a million things at once.
The odd thing about this post is that I thought of it while talking to a friend. Oh, the irony...
Edit: I just re-read that, and yes, I sound very selfish but I can't seem to help myself, these thoughts don't go away. :-(
