Why the counter? Because it makes me feel special. It is not that I actually enjoy seeing it rolling up, it is simply because no one else has it (for now). This gives me a feeling of uniqueness, even though the fact of the matter is that, at the core of my existence, I’m really... exactly like everybody else. But that fact scares me so I put the visit counter to make myself feel like I really am a special snowflake.
That’s it, I’ve gotten my bi-weekly existential crisis out of the way.
Have a nice weekend!
