Life is a series of build-ups and letdowns. The letdown lasts longer and is far more poignant than the build-up. Or maybe I am just bitter. The story goes a little like this: Dan sees a girl. Dan strives for attention of forementioned girl. Dan receives minimal attention. Dan devotes his life to the prospect of marrying the girl. Girl is very bad at interpreting signals (or just refuses to acknowledge them). Dan eventually realizes the girl has a boyfriend/no interest in him/both. Dan composes a mix to deal with it. Life is beautiful.
