I get it. You're hip, weird, edgy, smart, mysterious, and beautiful. So why do you walk/bike/lounge around looking like someone pissed in your Cheerios day after day? Look around you. This is a beautiful city! Pick your head up, unplug your goddamn headphones, smile, and acknowledge the people in your immediate presence. If you're really that unhappy, man/woman/queer the fuck up and get yourself some therapy and meds. Hate the weather? Move. Is your drinking and drug use causing your unhappiness? Then cut down or fucking stop. We are all in the same boat, the same existential crisis here. Try some humanity on for once.
