if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future
because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive
our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.
My brother and cousin are talking about their party/peer pressure experiences and now I feel like I’ve wasted my entire teenaged life. I’ve never been to a party (not that I would want to) but you know, it’s just the idea of it. I have befriended hardcore drugees, borderline alcoholics, and possible sex addicts and have never been to a frigging party. Wow. I’m a huge nerd.
Yeah I’ve been to parties, but every time I go to one i just stand at a corner and wish to be back home :P
I don’t understand why people aren’t interested in Astronomy.
You can look up into the night sky and see a fucking galaxy with your naked eye. You can see cosmic structures that are millions of light years across and if you don’t think that’s the coolest fucking shit then I don’t know what to tell you.
