college kids

I have a soft spot in my heart for college kids: they seem so young, they’re vulnerable but maybe don’t know it, they try so hard. Sometimes when I see a college student eating alone, I want to (1) cry, (2) go sit with them, (3) buy their lunch, and sometimes (4) call up their mom. I know it’s weird, and I can’t help it.

So this sign telling college students when they could get a food box? Goodness, it broke my heart.

PS – the tendency of people my age to blame all the wrongs of society on college-age kids really pisses me off. I mean, things are the way they are because that’s what we left for them. They JUST GOT HERE. Give them a chance and give them a break. [End of speech.]
