Free falling

At around, say, month three, you may start to feel as if you’re free falling. You’ll have existential thoughts about what it all means. What is a job, anyways? Or money? Why were you put on this planet? To push paper? Surely not! Maybe you’ll just become a street musician and give up owning physical things like clothes and dishes. You feel completely unhinged. You think you’re enlightened—but you’re just going a bit stir crazy.
