Sometimes I just get really pissed. And today was one of those days. It seemed to be going well (aside from the fact that I didn’t wear my watch to school for the first time in like 3 months…) as I went through Calculus and adv. Chem. Of course advanced chem was a mess because there was mass confusion about a certain ratio thingy, but that’s a normal occurrence for chem class. In any case, I made it to lunch pretty much intact. That’s when the ship started coming apart.
So I go to the cafeteria and sit down with a few ‘friends’ (if you could call them that after this sort of behavior) preparing myself to have a nice little lunch. Immediately I am inundated with gossip. I unpack my lunch and take out my sandwich. Then the talk gets downright insulting. Not towards me but to people I know and respect. I just cannot understand why people find the need to talk about others and their failings and whatnot. Can’t we just accept people as they are? Can we not stop bashing people for things they’ve done long in that past? Can we not get to know people before creating, and even worse, spewing out prejudices and rumors? I was just sick and tired of it all. Sometimes in those situations, I just feel like ripping into the perpetrator. But this time, I felt so disgusted I didn’t even bother wasting my energy. So I quietly packed away my uneaten lunch and set off to a quieter setting where I could fume and calm down.
I just don’t understand sometimes. It was probably cause I didn’t have my watch today. Yeah, that’s probably it.
