I am sending you a message because you are a great thinker.
Jordan, you have friends (me) and you are brilliant.
Don't worry about that school stuff - try and do it but if not, no problems.

Yes but whe you were young guess what. Some old F*rt was probably banging on about "the young people of today". "They wear their hair like this". "They dance to that music...".
It is a generational thing. We have just reached the age where we feel superior to those youths and maybe feel nervous aboutthe future. Guess what? Most of those youth will go ahead to make a meaning contribution to life. They will not allbe media celebrities but just ordinary Joes who have families, work etc.
Let them be stupid when they are young they can be sober citizens when they grow up
Generation E, for generation energy, environment, economics. and so on, but I call it Generation L, for LAZY!!!

I'll tell you what, anyone with an ounce of self respect would rather be unemployed than work at a gas station, fast food restaurant or walmart if at all possible. You know why? Because people will look down on them, call them "pathetics" and not give a damn how their "work ethic" shows.
I am almost 25 an have NEVER HAD A JOB. I have applied, but no one will hire someone on SSI (put on it at 16) and part time is damn near impossible to find unless you want to mop a mcdonalds floor. So you know what? I'm not doing SQUAT until I have the credentials or opportunity to make more than ten dollars an hour (which I do online).
Having known people who have busted their behind all their life and still are just one check away from street, I say screw that, I want better for myself.
