When I was a kid, I read a fun book called That's Good! That's Bad!

It was all about a kid who got lost at a zoo and had an adventure. Just as things seemed bleak, something good would happen to him. (That's Good!) Then on the next page, that wonderful thing would go straight down the toilet.(That's Bad!)

And now my life has become the book.

Today, I finished my freshman year of college and began summer vacation.

That's Good!

Today,I realized that I accidentally ruined my laptop, student ID, and room key with a pair of cheap magnetic headphones.
The only thing more impressive than the fact that three things were magnetized to oblivion was the scale of the stupidity that prevented me from realizing that I shouldn't use a pair of cheap magnetic headphones with my computer.

That's bad!

So, SE++. Let's tell stories of the good and bad things that are happening to us!

    I didn't even think you could screw up a computer like that unless you were working off a really powerful magnet

    but you mentioned it wasn't working well anyway, so that's alright

    uuuuuunnnless you lost things that are important

    how's the backup situation there

    I found out one of my best friends is getting abused by her boyfriend and is trying to distance herself from all of her friends including myself

    That's bad

    But the sun came out for the first time in at least 3 days and there was a nice breeze

    So that's good

    Probably doesn't even things out, but I want to make myself as happy as possible and ignore all the bad

    Who cares what anyone else says or thinks of you? At the end, how big you smile, how hard you dance, matters. Sounds like a victory to me.

    Fortunately I am still at school, so I have access to university computers. Unfortunately, I need somebody to let me into the computer lab because my ID card won't swipe me in.

    Thanks! Everything will be okay, I think! I have a new room key, the ID card is easily replaceable, and all my data is backed up.

    I was so close

    I coulda been a contender!

    Butler, it's not so bad, your laptop can be reformatted, and you can get a new student ID and room key quickly. Plus you get a second chance at a goofy student ID pic.

    What are you doing for summer vacation?

    The worst that has happened to me today is losing 4 straight LoL ranked games due to other people being very impolite.

    The bad, school's coming to an end which means I won't get to see my friends and such again since I'm graduating and won't get another chance at doing more stuff

    the good, i'm graduating and am feeling a lot more confident in myself lately

    also it's somewhat amusing/frightening that I was studying for a test that involves magnetism when you made this thread

    tangentially involves magnetism but still

    life's weird

    the backup situation is a-okay

    also, the problems I had with the laptop yesterday were because of the magnet too, I just didn't put two and two together until my room key broke

    I had been having problems with the laptop putting itself into sleep mode randomly though, I was planning on getting that checked out

    turns out that's a defense mechanism that triggers whenever a magnet is present

    whooooops

    Aren't you scared the magnet will reformat your brain? I'm pretty sure that can happen.

    They were cheap magnetic headphones that were given out at a university event

    they had a strong magnet on the back as some sort of a clip, I guess?

    The magnet was covered by a plastic piece, but that broke off instantly.

    That was warning sign number 1.

    As long as you keep in touch with your friends, and make sure to have fun and do stuff with new acquaintances when you can, that bad can still be good.

    And congratulations on the graduating part.

    Sorry.

    Keeping them for myself.

    The good:

    They're awesome.

    The bad:

    I'm becoming increasingly distanced from common humanity, thinking of you all like ants before my might.

    Hey waitaminnit, That's Good! That's Bad! is a Zen koan!
    Maybe

    Once upon the time there was an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.

    “Maybe,” the farmer replied.

    The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. “How wonderful,” the neighbors exclaimed.

    “Maybe,” replied the old man.

    The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune.

    “Maybe,” answered the farmer.

    The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.

    “Maybe,” said the farmer.

    My summer job interview in my dream field went really well. That's good!

    It'll kinda ruin a bunch of my summer plans because I'll be semi-sequestered on an island for four months. That's... okay, that's part of why I want this job specifically, I want to live on an island for the sumer!!, but it does mess up some of my plans to see bands and friends and stuff. But I knew that when I applied.
