"What's wrong with conformity?" (Zaraphayx 2017)
Zaraphayx 2017, 'Interpersonal posting; an in depth analysis of conformity', Journal of Postonomics, vol. 420, no. 69, pp. 20-32, viewed 9:11 pm (aest) 12 of May 2017, Posters of the Storm
For "a true non-conformist" you seem to be quite insecure and offended about prospect of being "another edgy underachiever" - like my words struck home or something
So you're telling me that trying to not be an asshole is anti-social behavior? I don't care about flash games, you want to talk about it then go make your own thread.
In this thread I'm speaking my mind, not listening to opinions. For someone who calls me narrow-minded, you sure are quite biased against individualists, maybe if you dropped that you could understand concepts like "Do what you want, not what others want!".
Not reading that (Post a direct link if you want me to). I think I'll go read some terribly written gay fanfics instead.
What? It's true!
Hey dumb bat, at least I have a home.
You mean your parents have one, and you're just living in it, am I right?
I should mention that I'm feeling a bit guilty about bashing you since the thread has a nice enough topic of being confident and independent, it's just that I think some of the advice you wrote isn't that great.
I was more so suggesting that to say offensive things whenever you want without reading the situation is pretty anti-social. Moreover, blindly saying anything without thought isn't a good idea since it can surely have repercussions and be self-destructive in some circumstances.
As for that last paragraph, I'm not biased against individualism at all. If anything, it's actually in my favour for people to be expressive in order to make some of my things become more socially acceptable so that I may be more open about myself. Anyways, I'm getting confused as to what definition of individualism you are using here. If this is just about being expressive, confident and achieving happiness, then my only point of contention is some of your advice given. On the other hand, if you're using this word to suggest that everyone other than you is just some silly idiot following the establishments - a buzzword - rules in order to be robotic and unhappy, as suggested by your first post, then I'm going to call you pretentious. I don't know, maybe I'm just being too skeptical, but I'm going to assume the latter rather than the former. Perhaps it's a mixture of the two though.
But I'm not Dutch, doe.
Good shit! ^_^
God forbid I enjoy something that others happen to enjoy as well. I can't be conformist!
If I would of known there was an ocean of salt on the forums I would of brought my beach towel and sunscreen... In all seriousness though, you need to chill out.
At least my parents care about me enough to let me stay until I finish college. Won't be long before that happens, so I'm happily and thankfully making the most of it.
Oh wow, you're being apologetic now? You don't have to feel sorry for anything, you don't owe me anything. I understood what you were saying.
Well, silly me! Saying things without thinking on the internet (Despite putting my mind and soul into this), I should've remembered that teh internet is serious business! Maybe I should just go and prance around with unwarranted self importance or be a holier than thou white knight just like everyone else! After all, like reality, you can't have fun on the internet, so sue me!
This is about how not to be a conformist, not how to be me! And if I wanted to be pretentious, I would've made a forum about "How Great I am," complete with selfies, my life's problems, politics, dick pics, and other egotistic shit!
Or so you say, that sounds like something a dutchman would say....
Ohhhhhhh please! Get over yourself! Just cause people like something that you do, doesn't mean you have to stop liking it. Although if you participate in something that everyone is doing that you are not really enjoying, then pull out and stop being a conformist loser!
Hey, gotta have some salt to achieve balance alongside that sweet bullshit of a circlejerk that makes me sick!
And I can't chill, I don't want to! Even if I did, it's really hot out here right now and summer is on its way.
But you know, that is the thing - a student living on parents' income and screaming about being all non-conformist and independent is like an alcoholic rallying against unresponsible drinking. It's easy to be like, "SCREW EVRYBODY, SYSTEM SUCKS, IMMA INDEPENDENEMENT!" when you actually have no real responsibilities and obligations, and your actions don't bare many consequences in grand scheme of things, but when you actually have to do a lot of things to stay afloat and think about your actions to not screw yourself up, this way of thinking falls apart rather quickly. What you're doing here even has a term in Russian psychology school, "youthful maximalism" - when you're mature enough to create agendas, but still young enough to understand the way world actually works, which results in thinking of everything as either "good" or "bad" without any in-between and building life around that. I think you'll pass that phase eventually, when you actually get to live on your own.
Stay on their goodside as long as possible, prioritize local jobs for your degree if possible, and milk the shit out of that before you move out. Having no loan payments and some savings before you move to wherever is a god damn lifesaver judging by some disasters I followed on facebook.
This thread isn't about being able to financially support yourself, I never mentioned anything about that in the thread. Since you have such a problem with my choice, it's safe to assume that you either didn't get the chance for a head start on life or you passed it up and left, only to fail and regret your decision.
I don't like the system anyway, and I'll take whatever advantage I can to avoid getting nailed by it.
That's the plan
Pingas is obviously the best thing ever, right next to a$$
I think somebody needs a cuddle *pounces and gives maximor a bit husky hug*. We need a picture of an adorable puppy, stat!!!
Ok now that's fucking adorable
