All around me I see selfish people. Granted, everyone has selfish tendencies, I am no exception; but these people take the cake, all of the cake. They’re people who only think of themselves and how YOU can serve them and make THEIR lives better. They look only into their own self interests and don’t give a second thought to what might be better for you or the group. Please, think big picture. I know we grew up in America and we’re taught that “we can be anything we want! Yay!” But seriously, swallow your pride and get over yourself.
I’m going to call someone out right now because I want to punch him in the face. So, I apologize to those who I might offend, but this is what I’m feeling right now. here’s the situation: my roommate and I are looking for houses to move into for the summer and the next academic year of college. My goals in a house: walls, heating, AC and a roof that doesn’t leak. His goals: basement, garage, master bedroom with attached bathroom, appliances, utilities included, hardwood floors, neighborhood that doesn’t care if we are loud (“we” meaning him and his band that none of the other roommates are a part of; there’s 5 of us total, including him), big yard, brick, and whole other laundry list of things; basically, everything that he grew up with. Now, would I want this house that he wants? Yes! Of course I would. Is it practical? No, not at all. Our back grounds are completely different, which is why our ideas for this house are different. I come from a middle middle class family and have 2 younger siblings that I’ve had to share bathrooms with, drive to places, take family road trips with and live with for 15 years of my life. He is an only child from a lower wealthier class family and has had a lot of things taken care of for him. I have to work to afford this rent: full time for minimum wage. His parents will cover his rent. I also have to work to afford everything else: food, gas, clothes, tuition, etc. His parents pay for ALL of that for him.
His parents give a $500 spending limit every month because if they gave him the $500, he wouldn’t spend it and would just collect it. I get $20 a week from my parents to help buy a couple meals. I work my butt off to make $700 a month that 40 - 50% of goes into a savings account, the rest goes toward food, gas, and Spotify (the reason I pay for Spotify is because I work at a concert hall doing sound. I use Spotify to play walk-in music before shows and this way I don’t run the risk of inappropriate commercials coming in over the PA. It has happened).
All of this he has and it seems like he doesn’t appreciates any of it. He’s too wrapped up in his self interest to see that the other 4 of us are out voting him. The reason I don’t just leave him in the dust by himself is because he has no one else to room with without me. Nobody else can deal with his arrogance and selfish tendencies. I feel sorry for his girlfriend sometimes. I really don’t know how she can observe all of this happening and not wonder about the logic behind their relationship. He believes that everything is there to benefit him and if its there to do that then it’s wrong.
I can’t stand him at times. This is one of those times. I want to punch him, just so he can feel how it is to not have things go his way. And if he sues me, fine. It just proves what a bitch of a man he is.
Sorry for the rant. Just needed to get this off my chest. It didn’t help my temper though, as I had hoped it would.

No, I’m not high. Just sitting in a hospital waiting for my grandmother to go into surgery. I realize how I have absolutely no idea how this procedure is done, what is involved and how everything works in a hospital. And to be honest, it scares me. All I know is that she is getting her gallbladder removed. I know enough to know where that is and what it does and how it helps your body. I also know that you don’t need it to survive, but it sure does help. Unless of course it’s really infected and full of gall stones (the equivalent of kidney stones, just in your gal bladder).
For those of you that don’t know, your gallbladder is a small organ located right above your right kidney, beside your stomach. Its job is to filter out the crap in your food after it goes trough your stomach (like fried foods and such). If you eat too much junk, you develop gall stones, which can cause the gallbladder to become infected. when the gallbladder becomes severely infected, it can cause you to have attacks of severe gas build up, similar to acid reflux. However, the result can cause your blood pressure to rise to very severe heights, which can makes your risk of a stroke to rise exponentially. So a gallbladder infection is no laughing matter. If it becomes too infected, it has to be removed.
I don’t know much about the procedure to remove your gallbladder, but it’s apparently a simple one for a general surgeon. I wouldn’t know where to begin, but that’s why I’m not a doctor.
So yeah, I have no idea what’s going on, I’m just waiting. That’s one the best things I know how to do. I have no worries about this surgery though.
Dude, I have no idea what’s going on.
This so cool, I wish I could make stuff like that
