"Same shit, different day."

People can be so boring sometimes. I find myself screaming inside when I overhear the same lackluster conversations over and over again. Can we please talk about something more interesting? Don't you want more out of life, other than bitching about work and going home to watch Netflix every day? The 9-5 cycle is really getting to me. I do it solely because I have to, and I cannot WAIT to be done with it. I've observed how this monotony sucks the passion and will to create from people. It turns them into robots, who just go to work, hate it, go home, talk about how they hate it, and repeat this shit every day. I used to be this person, a mere year or two ago. 

Now I'm even MORE frustrated in this environment because I know there's so much more to life and I can't stand being around the negative energy anymore. It kills me to feel like I have nothing to offer in a place where most of those around me just want to complain and persue nothing. It's not even the lack of ambition alone, it's the fact that everyone only wants to talk about the same boring bullshit all of the time. WHY? 

I love hearing about what a person is passionate about. I also love hearing about how people grew up, what made them the person they've become. What scares them, what motivates them. I want to hear those "real stories" whether light or heavy. It feels so good to get to know people who have interesting perspectives and even differing opinions than myself. It's refreshing to speak with people about the careers they are working toward and about the things they are creating. What kills me is petty drama for drama's sake. Starting shit over things that are so unimportant in the grand scheme of life as a whole.

I'm realizing how important it is to surround ourselves with people who are uplifting and who have even more ambition, passion, and empathy than myself. Too bad more people don't see that there is so much more to life than this.
