What happened to the days where you could just strike up a conversation with a stranger on the way to class? What happened to the days where you could connect with anyone, anywhere, anyhow?

People just fucking suck nowadays. No one respects others. No one says anything nice about anyone else. Everyone is just pointing fingers and blaming everyone else about the situation. It makes me sick.

If people weren’t so inconsiderate, maybe we could improve our intersocial relations considerably. Unfortunately, most people I see nowadays are dicks. Instead of starting conversations with people in line in front of me at Panda, I just tend to judge them. I couldn’t imagine any single one of them caring about anything I have to say. They’re probably thinking about how much they don’t like me (and everyone else around) and how there’s not a chance in hell they’re gonna start any kind of social interaction. Assholes.

The thing I kind of hate more than anything, though, is how no one can open up. Everyone always talks about other people. Like my friend Sarah, for example… she never talks about her thoughts, emotions, or desires. She just makes fun of her friends’ unfashionable boot and sweater choices. (You should have seen the Uggs she wore the other day by the way. So last year. And they absolutely did not match her leggings. It was disgusting.) Or my friend Doug. Instead of sharing his own life experience, he talks behind the backs of all his fraternity brothers and discusses their embarrassing drunken exploits. He’s such a fucker.

So: here’s what everyone should do. Everyone should stop being so fucking douchy and start being nice. Everyone should stop talking about other people behind their backs. Everyone should stop insulting other people and focus on themselves for a change. Maybe that would make conversation on campus at least a little more enjoyable. Seriously. All of you all suck.
