What in the hell happened to us?
I look around the classroom I'm in and scoff because 75% of them aren't virgins.
90% of them don't care about school.
But, at the same time, I disgust myself. I get home and I immediatly get on Facebook.
I go to the mall, a lot.
I say "I love you"
When I don't mean it.
What happened to us?
Please, someone please, explain.
