It is a truth universally acknowledged that some days are just shitty. Through no fault of your own, but because of a bunch of shitty out-of-your-control events that all seem to happen in the same 12 hours, everything makes you mad and nothing seems to go right. I believe Hyperbole and a Half accurately described this feeling once.
It’s an uncontrollable frustrating murderous rage! Don’t worry, everybody has those days. In fact, I had one of those days just the other day. So I made a playlist for you. It comes in two parts because if you’re like me then you hold your rage in all day and it takes a long time to unwind.
Part One is for when you come home from work/school/the doctor’s/your great aunt’s birthday party and you’re all worked up because of all the things and you’re like “I HATE EVERYONE”/WHY. For that I have included “I Hate Everyone” by Get Set Go which might actually be the underlying theme of this playlist. But it gets better! I promise. #itgetsbetter. That’s that Part Two is all about. Tomorrow will be better, I swear.
