  • The thing you dislike the most is apathy, lack of empathy.

  • Why is that?

  • I think it's really easy not to care.

  • And I think it's also it's really easy not toe understand the circumstances or the specific experiences of other people.

  • And to be, uh, dismissive of them.

  • And I'm not saying that like as a defense like because I'm defensive about it.

  • I don't like when people do that to other people.

  • What were you waiting to happen?

  • But like some of my best days, my best nights were spent there and I don't think you know.

  • You don't ever want to be in a place where you feel like your best days are behind you, you know?

  • But I will say that waiting for something big to happen is really fun.

  • That's nice.

  • Do you feel like these questions revealed something about your true nature?

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, not stuff that it's around from surprised by.

  • I mean, I think, I think.

  • But it's weird because it's like what you do, voice them out loud.

  • They attain their own sense of reality that is jarring but enlightening.

  • You know, whenever you look at yourself in any kind of introspective way or do you go on those journeys?

  • It's never like that was tight.

  • You know what I mean?

  • Like you never like.

  • That was so tight.

  • It's always like this.

  • Very like, you know, you know, it's like the morning after your mascara everywhere.
