The more I search, the less people I find I can relate to. It fucking blows@3 days ago
Ufggghhhshgdhgh@1 week ago
are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo annoyinggggggggggg. The entire city is filled with youthful people and their ideals, which is cool and everything that i’ve ever hoped for….a year ago.
but now after spending so much time with people who are not only my age ive had a change of outlook on how life should be. have compassion, be understanding, open up at the correct moments of connection. all of these kids are recent college grads who came straight to austin and skipped the struggle. they definitely have different struggles like making it in the world and finding their place in life, but the lack of age diversity plays a huge role on this city’s attitude. it has an air of entitlement and assumption of betterment.
thats not to say i havent had moments where im like damn this is the place to be. i went to eat bbq a few days ago and the restaurant was outdoors. it was cold and rainy and the waitress brought out hot cocoa to me and was like “i made some for myself and thought you might like a cup to warm up”. fucking sweetest thing ever.
ill stop complaining
idk maybe im just a pussy@1 week ago
