I once believed this way, that life was a serious of unfortunate events waiting to climax; each high a new apex to plunge into the depths of despair from. I no longer believe this.
Life is about perspective. Sure, there's AIDS, and disagreements, and dead deer on the highway; but life is full of so much beauty as well.
If life is tucked full of sadness, it's also sparkled with specs of ecstacy (not the drug) to equilibrate, or even (as I believe) to tip the scales over from tragedy to comedy.
A cloud shaped like your professor, a ridiculous email, the fact that the machine I'm running right now is harmonizing perfectly with the fridge across the room; I think if you took an unbiased look around you, you'd find there's more to smile than frown about.

I might not have said this a week or two ago, but I think I'm going to be okay. I think we're all going to be okay, as time passes.
But do me a favor, call your sister. Call her today and tell her that you love her. Do it for those of us that cannot.
