Listen, I’m better than the lot of people I spend my time with. I am responsible for a criminal amount of jealousy and torment on the part of the baby fat, freckled mass of people I’ve come across. I make big decisions that affect people’s lives. I am so clearly special that to act as though I wasn’t would baffle people. And people are watching. I feel no obligation to recognize the feelings or emotions of others (and frankly I wouldn’t have the time anyway). I am occasionally jealous of the several people in the world I am aware of who I consider to be clicking on all the same cylinders as me, but at slightly higher RPMs, and in cooler places with marginally more attractive people. I have never had what I would consider to be a “healthy relationship” with anyone. I work hard to project a marble-hard stoic look, but even faint criticism feels like someone squeezing my airway closed. I want you to like me in so many ways, but I like you in none. [Ryan Nimmo]
