Realizing the Boring Reality of Life: Crying in the Corner Edition


Life is boring. Like, super boring. It's not like the movies where the protagonist goes on a wild adventure and saves the day. Or the TV series where the characters have exciting love triangles and drama. Or the books where the main character goes on a journey of self-discovery and defeats an evil empire. No, no, no. Life is just...mundane.

*looks around the room*

This is it. This is my life. Sitting in a corner, staring at a blank wall, and feeling sorry for myself. But, you know what? I don't even have the energy to feel sorry for myself anymore. It's just...meh.

*takes a sip of coffee*

And let’s not even get started on relationships. It's not like in The Office where Jim and Pam have the cutest love story ever. Or in Friends where Ross and Rachel are "on a break" and we all know they're meant to be together. No, no, no. It's just swiping left and right on dating apps and going on awkward first dates. shudders

*leans back in chair*

But, you know what? There is one TV show that gets it. That understands the boring reality of life. That show is Schitt's Creek. It's about a wealthy family who loses everything and has to move to a small town. And it's real. So mundane. So relatable. It's like they're saying, "Hey, life is boring. But that's okay. We're all in this together."



So, if you're ever feeling down about the boring reality of life, just remember that you're not alone. And watch Schitt's Creek. It'll make you feel better. laughs Or, you know, it won't. But at least you'll have something to watch while you cry in the corner.

*wipes away a tear*

But, seriously, life is boring. And that's okay. It's just a reminder that we should appreciate the small things and make the most out of our mundane lives. So, cheers to the boring reality of life!
