Well Alright

So, right now, I'm sitting in my next door neighbor's room listening to him flirt with some girl. He thinks he's deep. In reality, he's as deep as a toddler's swimming pool. I think he believes he's the reincarnation of Common. Ok, I'm going to stop making fun of him. Has anyone had those weeks where in the morning, you wake up optimistic about the day only to be let down over the course of the day? Don't get me wrong, every day is a great day for me. However, I guess I'm ungrateful because I only want one thing each day. And, in all honesty, it's so close, yet so far away. Whoa, I just rhymed. Does anyone know what happened to the Wonder Twins?

I feel like the Wonder Twins vastly underutilized their powers. When their rings touched, they could transform into anything. Yet, what do they do? They transformed into the lamest creatures and objects. They just did what it took to get the job done? Why couldn't they transform into weapons or mythical creatures? I can think of approximately 24.737467 examples. Why couldn't they transform into the Loch Ness monster or a cool dragon? What a waste of talent.

I was talking to my friend the other day, and she posed a great question. She asked me if I really laughed out loud when I used the acronym "lol". At first, I thought that was an absurd question until I realized that people rarely laugh out loud when they text that acronym. So in a sense, are we just being habitual liars when we say "lol"? I like to think I'm funny, but I guess now that I think about it, saying "lol" is the equivalent of a pity laugh or listening to a 3 year old tell a story when their narrative skills are clearly not on the level of a Steven King or a John Gresham. However, I guess giving a pity "lol" is just the right thing to do. Ok, I'm leaving. Kick rocks.
