Living in California all my life, it was just a couple of years ago when everything was "normal." Now, in 2010, this is what I'm seeing:
· A drastic increase in people asking me for change and, more surprisingly, food. Back in the day, I learned not to give change out to everybody who
asked, since most used it for drugs, but more and more now, people are just asking for you to go buy them 6 Ramens for $1 just so they have something
to eat for a week.
· Appreciation for ANY type of work. In the past, jokes were passed around about how much it sucked to work at a fast-food joint. Trust me, that
rarely happens anymore. Even a 20-hour a week job as a dishwasher or sign holder is treated with respect.
· More and more people on the corners of intersections selling fruits and vegetables, and no, they are NOT mostly Mexicans like they used to be.
Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Chinese, Russians -- I've seen all types out there now.
· The moods I see everybody in have decreased. I used to walk in a crowd and see some couple making out, a group of kids chatting it up, etc., but I
remember a week ago walking through a general crowd, and I didn't see a single smile on any of their faces. Luckily, kids in schools seem to not have
changed all too much. Ignorance is bliss.
I keep asking myself every day, "How much longer can this go on for? Will we reach 2015 with everything still stuck like this? 2020? 2030?" I
haven't been through a major collapse before, so I know some old folks know it's coming. I just wish it would hurry up already. Either fix
California or let it crash completely so that we can all die and be the catalysts the Illuminati wants us to be or fight back against them and restore
California and, eventually, the rest of the world. Help me or cook me, but don't put me halfway in and expect me to stay there for years and
