This depressed me for a little while, and I thought about the futility of all things and the end of the universe. (This time, it is going to tear itself apart - this varies with each new discovery.) I started to write an angsty journal entry.

But then I considered that I was already happy before I bought this thing, so I simply continued doing the things I use to do and was happy again.
