it pisses me off how people admire others just for their appearance or their alleged beauty (not that I think JA is "beautiful" by any means). and i know this is going to be corny, but it feels so fake and shallow.
today, in the absence of any "real, talented" role models or religious deities, celebrity worship has become the norm, and i get so frustrated when people are idolised for anything but talent.
the most frustrating thing is that i have surrounded myself with people who are equally as shallow, people who i used to call my friends and now i just look at them and think - why buy a fake LV just so you can emulate a lifestyle and an image that you cannot afford, why buy $500 jeans when you're living off a student loan to look cool, why be a snob when you didnt even go to private school. in last few weeks i've really re-evaluated the way i look at the people i associate with, and have come to the conclusion that i have little if anything in common with them.
