You click on the facebook tab on your screen. Your news feed automatically pops up. You see that Trisha from highschool just entered a new relationship with Robert E. Clark from her new college after just breaking up with her highschool sweetheart. Ew.
You scroll down the news feed and see a buzz feed quiz on which Friends character Are You? Of course you click it, hoping that you end up being either Rachel or Joey.

Now you’re bored of facebook and decide to figure out why you’ve been having a sore throat for the past few days. You type into the google search bar your symptoms and WebMd pops up. You click on search engine and the first disease that pops up holds terrible news. You may have to get your tongue cut off and have to take foreign meds to counteract the swelling but that also have side effects of elephantitis of the foot. You keep clicking and clicking on the different links that brings you to different deadly diseases and you forget what you began your search with in the first place. Okay, wait, calm down. Your friends have told you before not to take WebMd seriously. You close your web browser and then your computer screen.
Now since not much time has passed, you decide to contemplate life. You wonder what it would be like to be famous one day, so you take a sheet of paper out and practice your autograph.
