Five reasons to get out of bed in the morning.

And by get out of bed I mean continuing on living each day.
  1. 1.
    Because I am still madly in love with someone.
    Even if she doesn't love me anymore, my love for her is at least a reason to live for now.
  2. 2.
    Because my parents have already outlived one of their two sons.
    Sad, but true. I love my parents. They are deeply flawed, but hey don't deserve to lose me too.
  3. 3.
    Because maybe things will actually get better one day.
    I'm skeptical, but I can't completely rule it out.
  4. 4.
    Because I haven't done anything great with my life so far.
    I want to do at least one great thing before I shuffle off this mortal coil.
  5. 5.
    I kind of want to make it through at least Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the end of the newest Star Wars trilogy.
    Life is a little more tolerable because of those geeky pursuits.
