    While Driving Sometimes And I Am Not Proud Of It!

    Okay, so I jump red lights sometimes. Drive and talk on the phone. Seatbelts are not my best friends. And when the signal is yellow, instead of slowing down I speed up. Have gone over the speed limit many times even in busy roads. Might have parked in no parking zones quite a few...

    Life Is Too Short Not To Be Lived

    Let the wind mess up your hair, your rules and your certainties. Let the fear of liking, loving and caring go away. Sadness? Let go off it! Let the wind take the locks of your beautiful smile, open the windows of your heart and free your inner drama. Let the wind teach you...

    *giggles Mischievously*

    Yep, I admit I am a naughty little rule-breaker. :PI don't like being told what to do or not do. I feel I shouldn't have to follow rules, I can think for myself! Rules are often so arbitrary anyway, they don't always apply all the time; sometimes the rules need to be interpreted...

    Rules??? What Are Those?

    Rules???? What are those???? I have no idea what those are, and I think that I break every rule that are set. I don't think that we should have rules anyways. I am an adult, I don't think that we need rules. Anyways the rules don't apply to me!

    Well technically its called 'bending',based on respect for the 'true intent' of the rules,and whether or not they actually apply ,under the banner of 'for the greater good'..and notwithstanding the concept of 'exceptional circumstance'.

    That's What they Are For Right?

    Rules are meant to break. and It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. ~ two of my mottos of life ~

    I'm really confused as to

    why people think there's all these "rules" we're supposed to follow. Like don't post two pictures on instagram in a day or wear the same shirt you wore yesterday, and how if you don't like someone you still tell them their hair looks nice when you see them because you're afraid...

    Rules

    Rules are dumb, we could be better off with a lot less of them. I like the freedom to do almost whatever I want and If I must suffer consequences I'll understand, and learn. I realized recently that that's one thing that really bugs me about the Bible. I'm religious and all and...

    Lack of Trust

    I don't obey most rules/ laws. I base my actions on what I consider be moral, and have never done anything terrible like kill, drive drunk, steal (well, outside some petty theft, which I don't really do anymore). But my morals govern my actions because I don't even trust the...

    You should never try and rule anybody, so why would you abide by a rule. I'm unruly at times so I do follow rules but in my own way. Since rules are made to be broken I have as a general rule ..balance...:)

    Achy Breaky Rules

    I enjoy breaking the little rules. Not so much for the big ones, but I like to accomplish what someone says I cannot do. It was a long time ago but I will never forget my grade 8 teacher telling me that I could not take the Arts and Science 5 year program in High School because I...

    Rules are made to broken - as long as no one gets hurt and theres fun to be had then rules shouldn't exist!! I make my own rules and live by them. At school I was such a rebel - I did not like authority and did not like rules, still don't. It was me that always got caught smoking...

    so, what? What's the fun to life if you can't break some rules. They are there to stop you doing enjoyable things. Breaking them is fun, and always lead to fun. That's why I do it alot. It's sometimes no fun unless you're caught though...

    Hmm..

    Who makes the rules anyway? In my case, my dad does. And it's driving me completely insane sometimes. Still I think I need them sometimes, although I'd never admit it to him of course. I just wanna be free. But I guess no one will ever be REALLY free.
