As the famous poet Taylor Swift once said, “I might be OK but I’m not fine at all.” That’s basically the premise of this meme.

Picture this: You’re listening to a very sad song — perhaps Sufjan Stevens’s “Fourth of July” or, if you’re really going through it, something depressing from Glee — when your friend notices you look a little down. “Are you OK?” they ask you. “Oh yeah, no worries,” you reply. You crank up the volume on “All Too Well.” You have lied.

my friends: you okay?

me: yeah I’m fine

On the bright side, it looks like spending full days blasting music designed to make you sob is a pretty common experience. That should be comforting, right?
