Some Observations of the Absurd

Truth is stranger than fiction.  Albert Camus and Soren Kierkegaard both observed life is absurd, in general.  However, in some cases. life can be even more absurd than usual.  These are some of my observations over the past few days:

  • Sometimes absurdity is the only proper response to the absurd.
    • Using logic to counter the absurd will just result in a headache.
  • Any time life appears to be under control, it’s just the universe’s way of signaling that an unplanned car repair is in your near future.
    • It’s usually something I need to last just one more month.
  • Even when the brain knows something is pseudoscience, it will still collect “observable evidence” to try to scientifically prove it.
    • My brain does this with depressed days and full and new moon cycles.
  • There seems to be a direct correlation to the amount of prep work for a project and the difficulty in finding the motivation and inspiration to actually do it.
    • I’ve got a couple of projects planned out that I just can’t get started.
  • Any time there is a tough choice between what we want to do and what we need to do, life finds a way to manufacture a third option of what we can afford to do.
    • Option three is usually just me not getting do the first two options.
