Why am I here?

There is a startling moment in each man’s life when he realizes that he has no idea why he is here. Naturally, he says to himself, “Self, why am I here?” I had that moment today. Why am I here? Well, I think I’ve figured it out. I am here because the university obviously doesn’t know that nobody comes to school when there are no classes, especially on Memorial Day, except for the staff and student employess, like myself, who are only here because they don’t get off for Memorial Day. Why is the school open on Memorial Day?! Banks are not open. Corporate offices are not open. The government is NOT open. But the university is open so that students who are not here can get answers to questions they are not asking, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT HERE! I just want to go outside, lie in the sun, get a horrible sunburn and party til I pass out like the rest of America, woohoo! Ok, I don’t want to do any of those things, but I definitely do not want to be here. Thanks for asking.
