So you’ve had a bad day. What do you do now to make yourself feel a little better? Read about other people who have had it WAY worse. Or better yet, you utilize the moment, give it a comical spin and contribute to the global on-line forum that has been gaining attention among college students around the world. Enter fmylife.com.

According to Urban Dictionary, the popular phrase “F**k my Life” was first introduced to popular culture in the cult classic film, Superbad. You remember the scene when Fogell is in the convenient store fumbling over the beer from the back cooler when he drops a few cans that break open and cause a mess. The store clerk, surveys the incident and mutters the memorable quote that has evolved to become the all-encompassing catch phrase of 2009.

The phrase has become so popular even for those of us who try to refrain from using the F-bomb since the acronym is itself, is all that is necessary to communicate the sentiment. Yup, cursing not required.

The site is gaining worldwide attention and gaining hits by the hour. Anyone can contribute and the format is simple to follow. Start your post with “Today” and end it with, “FML.” They even feature top fmls of the week, or the month or of all time.

Here are some examples:
“Today, I got my braces on. When we got in the car my dad looked over and said “well at least we dont have to worry about boys for the next two years.” FML”

“Today, I received my passport in the mail. They got my birth date wrong. Then I picked up my birth certificate that I had sent in with the application. Turns out my parents have been celebrating my birthday on the wrong day for 16 years. FML”

Just when you thought your life couldn’t get any worse, the site reminds you that for millions around the world, it IS.
