“I am tired of the internet culture of just talking about things; human beings are still the same. We’re bombarded with so many intellectual arguments in the forms of quotes, articles, pictures, videos, podcasts; so much good information out there. And we’re evolving into beings who forget to process what they take in.

People who share inspirational quotes are still acting like they don’t have a choice to follow their heart, girls who talk shit about guys still fall for douches, and guy who talk shit about girls secretly have four girlfriends.

And the most important thing about all this ‘thoughtful’ culture is that we’re so engrossed in our electron-driven lives, that we have forgotten to expend the energy these electrons are meant to create, and make a change in our lives.”
