Fox 4 news ambushed me in the student union at UMKC today. Some woman bum rushed me while I was being a lazy ass watching people play xbox between classes so I couldn't really say "no I'm busy" when she asked me for an interview. They asked me about how college students deal with stress. I was just like idk everyone handles it differently then she asked me if I think UMKC needs more mental health professionals. Apparently we only have 1 for every 2300 students when we're supposed to have 1 for every 1500. I was just like well everyone should have access to that kind of thing if they need it, but I don't know if we need more, I've never needed that kind of help, if they're swamped and can't help everyone then yeah they need more but if they're not I don't see it being a problem. Then she asks me if it worries me that we don't have enough in light of all of the recent school shootings to which I said "No, not really." She then looks at me like I'm a psychopath and says "So you're saying these things don't happen?" I wanted to say "No you stupid bitch I'm not a ****ing moron." but I just said clearly they do, I just don't put a lot of thought into things like that. (Because I don't. I'm absolutely sick of hearing about things like this and think that the best way to end them is to ignore them. Plus I'm a 19 year old male college student, not a demographic known to care about their own personal saftey.) But the moral of the story is I'm really sick of all of this shit and all the media coverage these shootings get and I hope they don't air it. I was just trying to watch some NBA2k13. Sorry for the long ass post it just kinda pissed me off and I wanted to share.
Funny side note: I was sitting with a group of about 6 black guys in front of the TV and she walked directly up to me, the only white guy, and asked me for an interview.
