Love, Loss, and Moving On: Discoveries of a 20-something Robot

It seems like everyone around me is either getting married or getting over some sort of heartbreak (it is the season after all), and I've been thinking about doing this for a while, but I've put it off for many reasons.  First, because it all seemed so emo while I was in the midst of it; second because I'm still not sure if I want to tell everyone on the internet about my feelings (my thoughts, clearly, are fair game); and finally, and probably most significantly, a lot of the people involved are still in my life and read my blog, so it's a little strange.  But it's a slow afternoon and I thought it would make for some interesting writing. . . However, after working on this post for a few days, it turns out I have nothing very insightful or profound to say on the subject, other than to express how surprised I was to discover that I was not immune to such feelings.  Instead, here are three songs that express it all pretty well, in chronological order:

Coldplay - 'Till Kingdom Come
(I tried to find one by ok go for unity, but I couldn't, this is fantastic though.  I aspire to be this effectively awkward)

OK GO - Needing, Getting

OK GO - This Too Shall Pass
