I keep seeing those “people who like classic rock are stuck up” posts and the funny thing is that the music I liked was one of the things I was horribly bullied about in middle and high school (even kinda in college), so I felt *worse* about myself bc I liked it…wondering if sometimes these posts are made by bullies who like to pick on people who are in any way different from them…

I hate when people say money doesn’t buy you happiness. it does. it buys you financial stability, a nice house, nice cars, nice vacations and trips, healthier food, a better education, etc. like wearing burberry while driving around in an audi would probably make me pretty happy too. but it’s just that rich people often take their comfortable lives for granted and end up being spoiled and ungrateful for what they have 

Exactly.

If expensive things are all it takes to make someone happy, then I’m glad for them.  But money can’t bring a dead person back to life.  It can’t undo abuse and hurt.  It can’t make some sick people well again.  It can’t fix someone’s mental illness.  I am up against these things and I know so many other people are too.  It’s not ungratefulness in these cases.  Everyone is different and there are many variables to peoples’ emotional states.  Empathy in regards to this is important. 

I just saw Steely Dan again (number 3!!) and it was really amazing they just leave me in awe every time

there was a little tiny girl there who was really into it and it made me so happy

and they played Home At Last which was totally wow

and Walter…what can I even say about Walter omg

I really wish I could have gotten up and jumped around and danced but I was scared an old drunk person might yell at me … that’s the only thing I would change about the experience
