“The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready.”—Helen Mirren (via imnotchaste)
Receptionist:Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
Me:Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
Receptionist:Isn't it the same?
Me:No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lose its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
In my 20 something years of living, i’ve never felt so much anger and disappointment for people who aren’t blood related to me. I’m a naive and candid person. I’ll do whatever for you if i think you worth it. Which sometimes results to me being blind at no seeing how people can be selfish and hypocrite. If you don’t want to replicate the gesture, respect and consideration that i’m giving then get the fuck out of my life and don’t play dumb. Acting like nothing is going on. Waiting for me to be the one bringing up the subject… Some people need to grow some balls…
