FML. The Unofficial Motto of My Life

Dramatic Irony (n.) -
irony that is inherent in speeches or a situation of a drama and is understood by the audience but not grasped by the characters in the play.

Irony is a concept that many people today have no idea how to properly use. So I looked it up and found the best definition that suits what I'm about to talk about

I am dramatic irony's bitch.

I view Dramatic Irony not as a concept but a like a spirit or something that decides when he(or she) decides that my life needs a bit more tragedy, or to him/her, comedy!

One of the most preveliant examples of this in my life I don't feel like getting into right now, it involves the circumstances around my junior prom....let that just ferment in your imagination for a while.

The most recent example was today. I took the shuttle to campus from Callahan this morning, swiped my All-Card to get on, as I got off and the shuttle was driving away, I cannot find my All-Card. This sends me into a flurry of panic. I am searching every nook and cranny of my wallet, nothing. I dig through my messenger bag, zip. I empty all my pockets, nada. I go over to the All-Card office to hold my card so no one can use it until I reactivate it. After my classes, I have my friend Mychelle search the bus as she gets on, no luck. So I decide, I'll just pay the ten dollars and get a new All-Card. As I am walking out of the student union, three of my honors hall roomies, while manning their community service booth, they ask me if I had lost my All-Card. I could just sense what was about to happen. They told me that the shuttle driver had my card...Fuck...My...Life.

Granted this is miniscule in the grand scheme of things but I still feel that this is one of the many things that Dramatic Irony likes to pile on my life just to get a reaction out of my. I realize I could be seen as overreacting but I feel that this is just part of the fabric of my life. The sun rises and sets, the seasons change, I get fucked by the omnipresent Dramatic Irony.

This is a shorter blog than most but I just need to vent and the moment I hit publish and get this all out of my system, I will return to my slightly sunny disposition that you all know and love about me.
