I guess I’ve stopped thinking that the world should make any sense. It stops you from being disappointed. You know when you’re always looking for some sort of logical explanation and stuff…up until this year I’ve always believed that there was some, I don’t know, system, some, some kind of universal balance or something…The whole idea that you deserve something, some kind of reward, I don’t know, it’s just.
