Peace will win And fear will lose There’s faith and there’s sleep We need to pick one please because Faith is to be awake And to be awake is for us to think And for us to think is to be alive And I will try with every rhyme To come across like I am dying To let you know you need to try to think
friends. family. something has just happened to me that is so totally wild i’m still reeling from it. this is the sort of story that you look at and you think is made up for notes. this is the sort of story you hear happening somewhere across the country and never happens to you personally. this is wild so i need you to hold in there okay.
rewind to like two weeks ago
it’s finals week
every day is a mountain of pain
i’m slogging through Absolute Misery
12 pages done on a paper that’s worth enough of my grade that 2 people in my class call it “the paper of pain”
the paper of pain
my laptop is an old crotchety tin can who chugs and has a black bar across her screen bc of a loose cable
i can’t afford a new one i’m a student who survives off of scholarships
her low whine is sort of comforting
i try to text above the keyboard, bc hubris is humanity’s true sin
i have shaky hands
the phone plunges like a meteor towards Tin Can
in that moment i swear we were infinite
at contact, the computer winks out
included below is image for proof of my Ultimate Misery

[brief period of serious introspection]
when capable of coherent thought, open chrome
lives again my document. in full.
nothing is lost
not a word
is this how Frankenstein felt? suspended between life and death, beyond the realm of the physical, deeply ingrained with the cycle of life as a whole? at once fully one with the universe, and, yet, apart?
i am touched on a level that is so deep and personal that i think a rib snapped
i heard angels. i forgave sinners. i knew the truth about area 51. it was all so clear from up here
so i decide to write a thank you note to google.
i was raised very polite so this was important
“where do you write an email to google?” i type into google
google email unsurprisingly leads to google.mail
finally decide after hunting through several options that i was going to post in the open. where everyone can see. bare my soul.
luckily i do that on the internet a lot
so on a help forum i ask where the heck i can find the email to thank the docs team. this is important. it is my Quest.
i explain in the post why this is important

in about a week, i get an email (not included, bc i have not asked permission, and i’m not rude)
email says basically “your post is funny and we would like your home address”
i would sell my soul to you, google, if it is my home address you want, it is my home address you shall have
mysterious, yet friendly, command to “watch your mail!”
