It’s just a life story, so there’s no climax

Falling in love makes you feel like the proverbial "love songs on the radio" are all about you.

Currently, I just feel like I'm trapped in a bad tv show script. Watching as much television as I do (for cultural literacy, of course) makes me have these moments when I suddenly realize that the story is not going according to the script. It really is too bad that we wrote the narrative according to what we thought other people would want to see and hear, because now the whole thing is just a disaster.
