I’m tired and bored of you.
Tired that you always want things your way and will complain every time it doesn’t.
Because you’re not willing to compromise.
I feel like I’m always the one to compromise.
All I do is compromise.
I usually abstain from commenting on tragic international events because I feel like a dick every time I fail to acknowledge one… Because I should be acknowledging them all. All of these tragedies are devastating. Somebody is always hurting. The operative word being “always,” which is a tragedy in of itself.
But at the same time, I don’t just want to talk about these events for the sake of acknowledging them. That doesn’t add any positivity whatsoever, and it helps nobody. And at the end of the day, I can only speak for myself, which makes me feel like I’m making the conversation about me rather than the issues at hand. Which is a reality that I really want to avoid…
The other side of it is that I tend to be very emotionally affected by these things. I have a… sensitivity to such emotional events. And when I get emotional, I’m no longer productive. I don’t want that. I don’t want to be a crying sack of useless trauma like I was with 9/11. I need to function as a person, for my sake, and for the sake of my sanity.
So I apologize to the world when I don’t openly grieve or express outrage to the injustices people face. To whatever viral tragedy may occur. There are several I have foregone these past few years. There are too many terrible things in this lifetime to perceive, and it’s emotionally exhausting to care so much. Especially if it’s coming at all directions.
"It’s not my job to make you a better man and I don’t give a shit if I’ve made you a better man. It’s not a fucking woman’s job to be consumed and invaded and spat out so that some fucking man can evolve."

The cognitive dissonance caused by a society that tells its children to “follow their dreams” through messages in films, literature, etc. and then punishes them for not choosing safe, money making careers in adulthood is fascinating, to say the least.
Pierre Lapointe frappe fort avec ce nouveau clip fou, réalisé par les géniaux Appendices, et en profite pour rouler une pelle à Michèle Richard.
If this video doesn’t become your favorite thing in life then I honestly can’t help you.
This woman though.
Honestly, all I can think of is how I want this more than I’m scared of it.
