I Guess I'm Just Adjusting
You know, that last post got me thinking. When I first started this blog over two years ago I really struggled to find a good title for it. I eventually settled on I Guess We’ll Just Have To Adjust mostly because it’s a lyric from the Arcade Fire song Wake Up that I had been listening to pretty much non-stop at the time. And I couldn’t come up with anything better. But I didn’t really think it would stick. I just chose it because I needed something right away but I felt like it was too long and difficult to remember and it didn’t roll off the tongue as nicely as I would have liked. I never changed the name because a) I couldn’t come up with anything else, b) people started to get used to it and, most importantly (and here’s the point of this seemingly irrelevant post), c) the name started to make sense (at least to me) in terms of the things I was writing about. What the eff am I talking about? Well we live in a strange world and in writing this blog I’ve realized that people do a lot of weird things but that might just be their way of coping or dealing with – or adjusting to, if you will – this wacky place we live in. I think that all the weird things I blog about are just methods people seem to have developed for themselves to help them get by. Some people read self-help books, others make miniature motorcycles out of watch parts. Some fall into the depths of addiction, others make pretty creatures out of bendy straws. Me, I write this here blog you’re reading. I guess that’s just how we have to adjust.
