i know exactly what you mean. im 18 and its nearly impossible to find people my age or even within 5 years of me that want to talk about anything
besides drugs and music. nobody gets deep anymore. i mean sure, id like to talk about random stuff just to fill the time, but we live in an age where
all knowledge is readily accessible and technology is unprecedented. think about what one of the founding fathers-jefferson adams franklin, take your
pick- would give to be in our shoes in the age we live in. and you want to talk about funyons all day?(figuratively speaking)
i get it, i do, and i dont want to be eyeball deep in serious conversation all day but is it bad to want it every once in a while? is it bad to have
deep, meaningful conversations with someone? the kind where you realize exactly what the other person is talking about and youre on exactly the same
page? that 'aha' moment..or even debate...
ugh. i really feel like, with everything we have there for us to learn anything about the world, that being uninformed or narrow-minded is just being
lazy. obviously there are people who dont have the internet or access to libraries, hell even food for that matter but theres no reason for people our
age to be so ignorant(excuse the harsh term, it just describes it best.).
people just have no concern for others' welfare or happiness, and its really sad.
stay strong, dont let narrow-minded people get to you. violence isnt the answer either...but that just comes with time. : )
