I use Google for everything.
When I’m lost or need to find the best route somewhere (and because I’m a 25 year old without a license – how to best get their via public transport). I Google recipes that involve the four things in my fridge (butter, chicken, olives, blue cheese). I Google ailments that afflict me (what is this rash on the back of my hand and why do I smell pretzels?) I Google that song with the guy from the thing I like.
Google knows what I mean. Google knows everything.
Google is a verb and a noun.
Google is my god. Hail to thee and thy googley goodness.
Soooooo it stands to reason that in moments of pure frustration – I have turned to Google for those harder answers.
And Google has not always helped me out in my time of need.
Google, what am I doing with my life?
Google, does that cute guy I always smile at like me or is he just like, being friendly and sweet?
Google, so I got this text from this other guy I like and it was all, “nm u?” and then a winky face. Do you think I should make a move or like, go to that party thing that my friends are all going to? Like, whats the deal?
Google, I think I want to move to LA or London or New York. How hard will it be for me to find a job in the industry there, and will I make friends ok? And will it hard to be find an apartment in an area that isn’t dangerous? And whats the least stressful way to get a visa for the states if I choose the states?
Should I choose the states? Or should I go live it up in Europe and travel around and marry Prince Harry/his look alike?
Google’s been failing me on those tough ones.
But then, that’s what happens when you put your faith and destiny into the hands of an all powerful being (or corporation).
Come on Google! Give me a sign! Show me I’m on the right path!
When Google doesn’t speak to me directly, can I conclude that it doesn’t care about me? I launch my request into it’s search bar and it just gives me vague links, throwing my answers back at me. Making me make decisions for myself, not really guiding me, but ever present, supposedly ever watchful. Google has billions of users and I’m just one small voice in the ocean of browsers.
Something something Religious analogy.
