RUT: a narrow or predictable way of life, set of attitudes, etc; dreary or undeviating routine.
There are just some days when you realize you're kind of in a rut. What am I doing with my life? Where am I even going? Why do I keep doing to the same things every day?
I often feel these things because I consider myself 'stuck'. Stuck in the same place I've been since college, stuck in a college town, stuck with a roommate, just stuck. Getting older doesn't help either. Though I love my job and my friends, it's the town that I'm in that I struggle with. Of course I can get out if I wanted to, but something always seems to hold me back. I just can't seem to make that clean break. I commend anyone who has been able to pick up everything and move to a new place.
I'm not always in a rut, but when I find myself there, I turn to things like writing, designing, listening to music, and taking trips back home. Anything that takes me away from the situation for a moment or so.
What do you do when you find yourself in a rut?
