Yippie, Materialism All the Way!!!
They say that money doesn't buy you happiness, but it sure does buy me this brand spankin' new MacBook (which consequently makes me very happy!).
That's right, I caved in and bought a new computer even though Ursinus is giving me one. In a way, this computer is a bribe to get me to go to Ursinus. Well, more like it's a consolation prize for having to go to UC. In all reality, I've more or less come to accept UC (that doesn't mean I'm happy about it, just that there's no point in me fighting against the dying of a already dead light), so this is just a great "woohoo"!
If you don't like Macs, well, then, this won't mean anything to you. If you do like them, then let me tell you, I'm in Mac Nirvana.
Although no material object can truly help me escape samsara. Because all things (yes, even this laptop) shall pass. The bittersweet reality of reality.
I hope you're all enjoying your Wednesday. I feel immensely bad about not doing my paper, and I know Ms. Shulman is going to make me feel like shit tomorrow, but in all reality, the Pleasure to Pain ratio of writing my English final just doesn't pan out.
Keep on keepin' on.
