Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want
You can hear this song in the film "(500) Days of Summer". *sighs* I do not feel like typing, but I want to post some lyrics. I forgot this song existed until I heard someone humming it.

Alors, I am not a lucky person. My life is plagued by bad experiences, but I persevered with God's grace and sometimes the aid of others. I have been very temperamental since the end of September, hoping that my luck would turn around. I should have known that it would not, but I place a lot of hope in things and people, waiting for a glimpse of brilliant light. Recently, I thought I had a change of luck. I somehow had the weekend off work (this close to the holidays), hoping to take full advantage of the time. I was taken advantage of. *shakes my head* I thought I had some bad weekends in my life, but this easily takes the cake. (I do not eat cake, so it is fine to take it.)

Anyway, I told a receptionist a little of what happened a few hours before, and she replied by saying that I am not lucky but am a miracle. I partially agree: I am not lucky, but I am also not a miracle. Just living is a punishment. It would be a miracle if I died soon and unexpectedly.

I feel like I am becoming worse of a human being, hence why I chose this song for the journal. It makes sense, seeing that I am a product of genetics and what I experienced in my life. I have been trying, for many years, to transcend the evils of living. I can honestly say that I see myself becoming like the reverse of Ebeneezer Scrooge's character from "A Christmas Carol". If I somehow live long enough, I may be one of those bitter elderly people who yell and curse at everyone. I apologize in advance.

Well, on to the lyrics:

"Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want" by The Smiths

"Good times for a change
See, the luck I've had
Can make a good man turn bad

So please, please, please
Let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want this time

Haven't had a dream in a long time
See, the life I've had
Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time
Lord knows, it would be the first time"
