You might watch this video of Kaylee blowing out her birthday (I assume) candle and think, “Hey, Kaylee? Maybe you should relax a bit.” Continuing to yourself as if you’re having a dialoge, you’d think, “Kaylee, what you’re doing is clearly not working and it looks like you’re going to pass out. You should forget about it. Just forget about the candle and move on. Kaylee? Are you listening?” She won’t be listening because she is a video and you are in your own head, but still you’ll be like, “Kaylee, listen. I’m older than you and I know how these things work. You try and try and try and everybody watching you can see that you’re getting nowhere, but for some reason you can’t really perceive that yourself. Blind, failing ambition. The failures will help you grow, but the feeling of having wasted so much of your time will stick with you and weigh you down. Kaylee. So, just, my goodness. Just please stop trying to blow out– JUST STOP IT!” But she won’t stop.

And then you’ll find out that all along Kaylee was the one teaching YOU a lesson. (Via Rats Off!)
