It's all really got me to thinking about the way that we operate as fellow humans. I have been highly attuned to the way that people communicate lately, nothing sinister or invasive, just a little silent observing of the behaviours of others. And I gotta tell you, that not only are a lot of people generally self involved assholes but they are also very unkind to themselves.
I find that a lot of people are only motivated by what they can get out of you, hardly ever what they can do for you. I also find people's complete inability to communicate with a level of respect to others, utterly gob-smacking! I mean no one seems to give shit what they say or do, or the implications that their behaviours have on other people.
And the bad mojo rising - please! It's hard to watch people getting around like the jam is out of their donuts all the time when they have so much to be thankful for. What kind of people are we? What hope has the next generation got when everyone is so bloody blinkered all the time? I would love to kick humanity up the arse sometimes, but I think that it's just the current climate that is making me also extremely sensitive to the ridiculousness of others. It is an unfortunate side effect of going back to work after being away from it all.
So just hand me the Spackle, it's time to fix some cracks and move forward with a snippet of decorum before this whole things turns into shards of shit.

Running Time: 98 mins
This documentary is a must see for everyone, but essential viewing for anyone that works with children or has children of their own. It's thought provoking material about a problem that we as all too often turn a blind eye to.
This year over 13 million kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home, on their phones and in the streets of their towns. BULLY is the first feature length documentary to show how we have all been affected by bullying, whether we've been victims, perpetrators or silent witnesses.
This documentary really highlights all of the problems out there; but unfortunately doesn't deliver any real solutions aside from making us all more aware, so you're just left feeling pretty helpless and sad in the end.
FINAL SAY: It's a lot tougher for kids than we may think
