Once upon a time, I thought I was making a strong, moral stance against societal norms. However, over time, I’ve seen myself slipping. Once upon a time, I tried to stop myself. Tell myself to listen to what I’ve been told my whole childhood. That every temptation that I would yield to would cause me major damage. All that path led to was bitterness, resentment, frustration, and...
I understand that it’s a natural tendency for people as a whole to categorize. We like things in nice little boxes. But, in reality, nothing can fit as easily into separate extremes (especially nowadays). Sometimes, even though I too am guilty of this, I wish that people as a whole can accept that everything is a continuum and that anything that seems organized into nice little boxes is...
I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me,...– Augusten Burroughs

If I have learned anything in the span of my lifetime, it is that reality is what you make of it. It is not one ‘standard’ that everyone follows, nor is it designed to be. All-in-all, the only solid conclusion that I can make of this is that the standard set for reality is a form of safety. How can we perceive others in relation to ourselves if we have no universal standard of...
It’s strange to think that I’m naturally inclined to participate in someone else’s social dynamics, whilst managing to keep my own in tact. What’s even stranger is that it always seems as if something different is going to happen, yet I get the same outcome over and over again. For the sake of variety For the sake of my sanity For the sake of my own happiness I really...
I have always been convinced that an otherworldly being is causing me to defy the consequences of being careless. And, just recently, I’ve been officially assured that the same concept applies to the benefits of being cautious. Like many others, I am generally carefree (not to be confused with careless). I take basic conclusions that require nothing but common sense. What’s life...
I will never understand the hype of exclusive, long-term dating in high school. The rest of my life begins a year from now. People assume that I’m going to wait until then to explore and find out what the real world is actually like. But I’m not going to wait my whole life up until a year from now to do that when I can do it now. Have I thought of it? Yes. Have I been given some...
The perks of living in a society of instant gratification…and the pitfalls… If you want something, you’ll get it. And you’ll get it now. Thus, the journey has depreciated in value.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no correlation between quality and quantity in many cases. There are too many outside factors to gauge the quality of something, or how something got to be so quantified. But I’ll just stop here. It doesn’t matter how many times I reiterate it or whether I find a specific scenario to prove my case. So I’ll just leave well enough alone and...
