last night i dreamt i was at a baseball game and i was on the kiss-cam next to this cute boy with his family and everyone was cheering us on and the guy smiled at me and i smiled back and then i leaned over and kissed his sister instead and the stadium went completely silent before the announcer said “well that was certainly a curveball” and i laughed so hard i woke myself up
I’ve been making a conscious effort to be nicer to people and it’s surprisingly difficult! I constantly have to think about whether to go through with a good deed or if it would be construed as ‘too creepy’.
Lately I’ve been studying plants (structure and function for bio) and I’m suddenly really aware at how advanced humans really are. We have a consciousness, can teach each generation everything the previous one has learned, we can conduct super complicated experiments and figure out how just about everything works.
We have so much control over our own lives and that of every other living thing on this planet… and yet it’s common knowledge that even if you don’t believe in global warming, that we are seriously fucking up the earth. We know that the forests are important but we just keep chopping them down. We know that oil and fossil fuels will soon run out AND are doing a tonne of damage to the ozone layer, we know that we produce so much landfill and that plastic is toxic to the environment… MOST people know this!!
And yet we’re all just like, ‘Meh.’
