Overheard on Campus
After pulling a close too allnighter, after which I still had a ton of work left to conquer, I was a little out of it to say the least.
So in my quest to pull myself out of bed and get the day going so I could be productive, I found myself randomly outside a lecture (where I didn’t even have class).
There waiting outside as well were these two boys. For the first 10 minutes I didn’t even notice them but after a while 1 of the boys pulled up a picture of a girl that had body issues. He started by saying “dude look at this girl, she posted a while back saying that society says she’s fat but she thinks she is beautiful. Now look at her now “[ the girl had lost an extreme amount of weight and people were now saying she was too skinny]. The boy continued “It’s because of you assholes that she starved herself to lose all that weight and yet they continue to bully her. I swear people are so rude!! How can you say that about someone? I mean, she’s hot now but she was pretty before too look *shows picture of girl before weightloss”. At this point the other boys says ” that is the world we live in”. The first boy replies “but it’s wrong! you can’t treat people like that! I swear dude if I saw these people in real life I would seriously have to be held back. It just isn’t right”
Both boys entered the lecture hall, leaving me with a huge smile on my face. Every now and again I encounter genuine people. Rare but it happens.
I needed that :)
