Do you ever get the feeling that something is missing?
Either a person, a place, a thing, an idea? Even if you don’t know what that entity could possibly be?
For me, it’s the most unsettling feeling in the world.

Again, I don’t usually reblog stuff like this, but….yup.
Okay, I think this is getting a bit nit picky. I’m biased because I use this phrase myself, but I do want to point out that I don’t say it to insinuate that a) I’m more complex than people of third world nations, or b) I’m more keen on technology and pleasure. I say it because I think, “Wow, it’s really stupid that I’m mad that my text is sending two seconds later than when I want it to when damn, it’s amazing I can text my sister from the other side of the country in a speedy fashion!”
I know that I personally, and many other people, use the phrase “first world problems” just to poke fun at how we get so annoyed and wrapped up over the tiniest things, usually involving technology, to the point of losing sight of the more important things in life. I dunno. First world problems. :P
