If you're like me and enjoy the occasional, or perhaps more regular, activity of perusing the most recent issue of the latest design magazines, then it's likely you've also felt completely inadequate and utterly defeated about your own life afterwards. The images in these magazines are at first inspiring, but around page 12 I start to spiral into a depression, and wonder, "Who are these people?"... "Who lives like that?"..."They look so rich and happy"..."What's wrong with me?" And this is where I realize I'm being completely ridiculous. Just because the images indicate otherwise, it doesn't mean the people in those awesome houses - full of "Eames" this and "Scandinavian" that - aren't still human and trying to figure life out like the rest of us. Right?? So that's when I put down my dark-depression-waiting-to-happen and head over to Unhappy Hipsters. Thank you for restoring my adequacy, you've saved me tons in therapy.

These go on and on, but you get the point. Besides, I feel MUCH better now.
