It bothers me how, at parties, people tend to talk to one another for a few minutes at a time, then they break off the conversation, talk to someone else for a minute, then someone else, so on..... I do not see the point of having short, meaningless, conversations like this. What bothers me is that there is no benefit to this situation. Why do people do this? Just to socialize? Do people actually get joy from plain socialization? It also bothers me how people have totally different attitudes and personalities the next time I see them after a party when we are both sober. I like to think that I remain fairly unchanged, while the other person has changed greatly.....it seems like their relationships with the outside world are only fueled by alcohol. Now, at 18 years old, I am not new to the scene of social gatherings involving alcohol. These things have always bothered me some and I would really like to clear up if everyone see's it this way, or if only I do. If everyone see's it this way, what the hell is wrong with people?
