    This just made me very happy. This was my life today, this is my life today, I woke up at I slept through my first two classes, and then sat on my computer, debating with myself, trying to decide whether or not I should go to my last two classes. Then, when I had decided to go, I took too long to get ready, missed the bus, resigned myself to play call of duty, skipped out on coffee and dinner with girlfriend and friends, just because, watched this video, trying to decide what to do next.
