My Life According to the Friends’ Theme Song

So no one told you life was gonna be this way: To be honest, you’re right. Nobody did. I had no idea I would end up married at 19, doing an online degree with the Open University, and battling myself to get work done. I thought I would have published an international best-seller by the age of 15 like Christopher Paolini.

Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.: My job IS a joke, but I still enjoy it sometimes, plus it got me my first car so that’s a happy pebble. I am broke, but only because I am saving, so really I am not broke I am just unable to spend frivolously. Which is a good thing. My love life has its ups, it has its downs, but when all’s said and done, I’m glad for it and its sustainability and the warmth it gives me when my feet are like ice cubes and I can’t feel my fingers anymore.

It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear. When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year: I feel that way. I’m 21. I still have plenty to do and plenty to prove and HEAPS to improve!

But…. I’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too): Mmhmm. Uh-huh. Mmmm yeaah “nods along to the music”


You’re still in bed at ten and work began at eight
You’ve burned your breakfast, so far things are going great
Your mother warned you there’d be days like these
But she didn’t tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees: Oh God this is all true, it’s all true.

What about you?
