Sometimes it's difficult to avoid thinking critical thoughts about things other people do. I know I'm guilty of it, at least daily (if not hourly or minute-ly or an even more-ly amount that I never want to consciously admit to). We travel here and there, minding our business, except we never really are. We're bored of our own business, which is why dramatic television is such a hit.
But I've come to find that people have their own reasons for doing things. Sometimes, even when you know it will eventually ruin you, it's just nice to have something to look forward to.
That's a Meg-ism.
