Things That Send Me Into an Existential Crisis

  1. Giving students numerical grades on their work.
    Ah yes, you did 85 on your creative writing assignment.
  2. Unraveling knitting projects because I messed up.
    I spent so much time building you up just to watch you fall.
  3. The word "ubiquitous."
    Especially when used in scholarly articles.
  4. Stargazing.
    It's fun until you realize you're stuck to the side of a rocky planet with nothing keeping you from falling into the void except for a gravitational field.
  5. "Death is only the end if you assume the story is about you."
    Thanks, Night Vale.
