I believe I’ve gone insane. I just spent all of the time since I left school until now staring at computer screen, TV, and/or microwave. I’ve been doing homework, coding HTML, finding the standard deviation of 90 numbers, and now, I’m writing a blog listening to “One Shining Moment”. A song about success, about those hard days on the basketball court, but now, you are living your dream: playing NCAA basketball for a college scholarship, so that you can get drafted in the third round, get traded six times, and then play in the Asian league because your only skill is being tall.
Regardless, something about the song inspired me. I was in some “can’t focus because this graph looks like the position vs. time of my bank account” funk (if your wondering, it is an exponential graph, moving rapidly towards zero). Yes, I was feeling down. But when the faux orchestra, piano keys, and MIDI trumpet horns of that song kicked in, I was feeling 10 feet tall. It all made sense…I am somebody. They should market this as the new high – “It’s completely safe! Pure Euphoria for the Ears! Inspire Self-Confidence!” Start feeling good now:
And yes, you are somebody special. And if it doesn’t work, that is because you need Real Player.
