T.S. Eliot’s Response To When Life Sucks

As finals looms over my head, laughing at me, waiting to destroy me, I cannot help but think about life (since I am writing my will for when I die from the stress of this week).

This is finals week


And this is me


Now that you got a visual on what my week is going to look like, I’m going to talk about life and stuff.

So life pisses me off on a regular basis. I have not figured out how to deal with that quite yet. If you have any tips, please do not hesitate to contact me at 1-800-PLEASEHELPME. So as life continues to ruin everything, I’m forced to deal with it. I’ve been dealing with it by eating a lot, crying, watching a lot of Friends, crying some more, sleeping, throwing things at walls, throwing people at walls, eating some more, and being in permanent fetal position weeping while holding onto a bag of cheetos. My life is kind of a mess but what else is new?

Anyways, I came across a quote by my favorite poet, T.S. Eliot.

“If you haven’t the strength to impose your own terms upon life, then you must accept the terms it offers you.”

Now that is some enlightening, life changing stuff. I feel like T.S. Eliot is saying “YOU DO YOU, BOO.” So basically:

“YOU DO YOU BOO.” – T.S. Eliot

T.S. Eliot never ceases to amaze me with his words and the usage of those words. Also he wrote an entire book of poem about cats. So of course he’s my favorite poet. Anyways, I feel like this quote is so great. I’m not saying to start marching through the streets demanding life to agree to your terms and conditions. I’m saying take your own life into your own hands. It’s yours. It’s up to you to make yourself happy. It’s no one else’s responsibility to do that for you. So do what makes you happy, even if they are little things like watching Netflix and eating away your feelings. Stop worrying about tomorrow. Stop worrying about whether he/she will text you back. Don’t let your happiness depend on other people. That’s just absurd. Happiness stems from within (Confucius probably said that or something.)

There has to come a time in life where you’re just like “You know what? Screw you, I’m doing things my way.” If you want to step up to your terrible aunt and uncle and go to a school for wizards and witches while fighting the strongest and most evil wizard in the history of evil wizards, you do you. If you want to run away and build an ice castle because you have the power to turn things into ice if you touch it, you do you. Also Elsa doesn’t want to build a snowman with her sister but she goes off and builds her own snowmen as well as a huge ice castle? That’s just rude. Come on, Elsa. I’m just saying, look life in the eyes and tell that bastard to stop taking your lunch money. Remember, small steps. It’s okay, take your time. Give yourself a break when you need it. Take a bath. Catch up with old friends. Make new friends (unless you’re socially impaired like me then just go to your nearest animal shelter and makes animal friends, they’re better anyways). Don’t compare yourself to other people. Other people don’t matter, what matters is you and your own happiness. Focus on that. Focus on yourself. You’re pretty great, it’s time to start realizing that. YOU DO YOU, BOO.


Now if you’ll excuse me
