a real reason to whine.

go look. no. really. I mean it. I have wondered what people think, feel, experience that leaves them as whiney pieces of shit. hell, I teach around 80-120 self centered, whiney, pieces of shit every year (and I love them). But it always leaves me feeling like my generation, and those who have come after, have no concept of having to struggle. My grandparents lived and grew up through a depression, a major war, struggling with little to no education. My parents had it a little less hard, they had the tail end of Vietnam, they had personal challenges, and my mom grew up in a house with 12 kids, 3 bedrooms, and 1 bathroom (oh, and no car either). I have not had to fight for what I have. It was given to me. I don't struggle to put food on the table. I am healthy. I have a good job. And I am still a whiney piece of shit.

And then I read that kid's blog (yes, he is a kid). Damn, some people know how to fight.
