You may be interested to know that I have categorized thirteen kinds of despair, listed here for your convenience... / and arranged by time-of-day, so with planning you may experience all thirteen despairs in a single twenty-four hour period: / The first kind of despair is the suspicion that there is no safe territory outside the warm confines of one’s bedclothes. / The second kind of despair is the sense that even the most elegant of breakfasts is fragile resistance to the oncoming day. / The third kind of despair is finding life as shifty and indiscernible as the Rorschach of crumbs on your plate. / The fourth kind of despair is when the tea is so hot you must leave it alone until it is far too cold. / The fifth kind of despair is the knowledge that with the sun overhead, your shadow has vanished and there is no place to hide. / The sixth kind of despair is when you realize you must close the book you are reading and reluctantly participate in something or other. / The seventh kind of despair is that the sun has set on another day and so little has been done. / The eighth kind of despair is burning dinner in the oven. / The ninth kind of despair is the realization that a bad dinner still creates dirty dishes. / The tenth kind of despair is the presentiment that a darkening sky brings darkening times. / The eleventh kind of despair is the inkling that an evening should have been better spent but that it is almost bedtime. / The twelfth kind of despair is the knowledge that countless others are sleepless with you. / The thirteenth kind of despair occurs at every moment, waking or sleeping, and surely this needs no explanation.
I feel like this is some reference I don't get, haha. But I thought I'd post about it anyway.
P.S. Sorry for disappearing on you guys! Life got in the way, I guess. School and all that stuff. I don't know if/when I'll be back for good, but I'd like to come back properly at some point! Still might lurk even if I don't post.
