i had noticed something before, sort of, while riding or at the grocery store but i did not quite grasp it until today. sitting at my desk with headphones, listening to music; as long as i did what i was doing (writing a report) and just let random* music play, i was fine. i didn't particularly want to listen to everything that came up but.. until i skipped a song. and then i was skipping five songs at a time to get to something i wanted to hear.
there's something in that. contentment begets complacency. a rocked boat doesn't quickly settle. reaching has consequences. something.
* - that shit is not random.
