Almost everyone in my family is as messed up as I am (dad's the big exception). My friends are messed up, too. I look at other people, who have gone to university (unlike most of the people in my family), gotten long-term employment (unlike most of the people in my family), been in long-term relationships (unlike most of the people in my family), and who haven't been diagnosed with psychiatric disorders (like almost everyone in my family) and think, "Huh. Must be weird to be educated, gainfully employed, married, and not on medication. Do people like that even exist, or is that a construct of the Hollywood-industrial complex?" I'm not sure I know a single person like that, aside from my dad. It's sort of nice, in way, though, because it's hard to feel like a ****-up when basically everyone you know is a ****-up. What sucks about it is that every person you know is an anchor just waiting to drown you. I think it would be nice to know people who, even if they don't help, at least don't try to drag you down with them.
I love Society. It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be.
