A fish does not know it is in water.

From lifehacker: 
           "The point: it's easy to forget that what surrounds you is only normal because it's what you know. To others, those surroundings might seem pretty strange."

This is a little off topic specifically...  When I am really stressed out, I have a tendency to forget about everything going on around me, and just focus on me, and my stress.  It's like being in murky water with junk floating around in it.  I focus so much on myself, and the things happening to me in the immediate present - more of a mechanical response to stimuli, like some kind of a survival instinct.  I completely lose sight of the future, and can't see anything else happening around me.  Just me, stuck in the murky water alone. 

Also, when I get stressed out, I apparently misplace things.  I found my wallet in the freezer a few days ago, and this morning put my glasses in the dishwasher.  Wallet is fine.  My glasses got all bendy and look like they belong on a wax figure from Ripley's Believe it or Not.
