It’s a shame that they’re so uninteresting. It is interesting observing a different culture. I’m not doing the proper gap year thing because it doesn’t really interest me, and I can’t afford it. I do realise though that the only way to really empathise with the the developing world is to flit through it on a 12-month holiday. The developing world doesn’t really interest me though. Maybe it’s because I don’t feel very guilty. Maybe I’m just not very interesting.

Another reason I don’t want to go on a gap year is;  if I wanted to meet a load of drunken twats I would just go down to the local indie night and sell nos. Like flies round shit. And I can do that any old week.

Well, not any more. I’m in 1959 now.
