    The Ones Forgotten (Colorado Shooter)

    Again a matter of truth. If you dont like what I have to say feel free to leave the page. I want to apologize to the Colorado shooter for not being there when he needed a friend the most, when he was struggling with whatever caused him to do what he did. I am ashamed to be a part...

    What Every Girl Wants

    People my age are already talking about marriage, and wanting to have a wedding after finding the right guy. They want to have "as many kids as they can handle" meaning something like 3-6. I remember my dorm-mate last year said that when she was 16 years old, the only thing she...

    I am me. What you see is what you get.

    I don't follow any groups of people or let others tell me what to do or how to think. I make my own choices in life and do what pleases me, just as long as I am not breaking any laws......

    This Group Is Funny

    What we don't realize is that confromity is a paradox. we all conform to something. we conform to non conformity. if you are a non conformist then you shouldn't be on this site because it's all about conforming but then you would still be conforming because just like every other...

    I'm Too Weak to Conform. ...

    I'm too weak to conform. I don't have the time or the energy to care about whether or not I'm enough like so-and-so, or is so-and-so really likes me or thinks I'm cool. I don't care enough about being pretty to dress or act like a girl. I don't care enough to spend even 5 minutes...

    Noncomformist By Nature

    I've never been the guy who tries to stand out, or make trouble. I've just never been able to blend in. My desire to ask questions sharply conflicts with the comfort of believing what I'm told. My nature of honest communication sharply conflicts with others' desire to avoid...

    I Suppose So

    I don't mean to be a non-conformist - it just happens.  It just seems to come naturally. Growing up I was always encouraged to think for myself, and to make my own mind up about life, the universe and everything in it.  It is something i have always done, a skill I...

    I Won't Be What Everyone Else Is

    I go against the grain; I march to the beat of my own drum. I'm not interested in the things that many people flock to; the fads and trends that most jump on the bandwagon to.

    Me Compared To The Other Girls

    I'm not really like the other girls in the town I moved to last year. Here's pretty much what every girl is like in my school: 1) Loves wearing dresses, shorts, leggings, and skirts. Jeans are a big no and super-weird. 2) Only wears Uggs or Sandals 3) Wears a bun hairdo, no...

    I guess that's what most people think of me. Today I wore toe shoes and a donut shirt while I was stuck in a crowd of teenage mainstreamers wearing poncho shirts and shorts. I guess the main reason I'm a non conformist is when it comes to music. I love everything nobody knows...
