The Royal Wedding has not only brought together Prince Harry and his new duchess, but it's brought us all together. For one moment, we escaped the monotony and hideousness of our own lives. This spectacle allowed us to forget the boredom and the pain most of us must endure every day just to eat food and sleep in a bed. Watching these two beautiful people come together shines a light on the rest of us. And that light is ugly. We don’t deserve to live in that light. I’ll never be a royal. None of us will ever be royals.

The contrast between my life and theirs has been made abundantly clear. I'm just kind of sitting in that reality right now.
