let me explain by chronicling the year 2008 in petty personal disasters in pretty much chronological order:
#1) my ipod loses half it’s functionality, necessitating a very expensive fix.
#2) my beloved ibook dies, leaving me disconnected from the world for quite a while
#3) my pocket is picked, on a bus taking away very little in cash, but a very special wallet and my driving license, college ID, and ATM card.
#4) and just today, my mobile phone popped out of my pocket unnoticed and is now missing, presumably forever because nobody returns things in this city.
#5) (hopefully) the ground opens up and swallows me.
some days you just dont see the reason to go on living.
