    You Raised These Sheep...

    My friends constantly tell me "why don't you like this or that"? It is so annoying. NO, I am NOT like you and I don't WANT to be like you. They always judge me for liking heavy metal and rock music. Well, no, this is your kind of music, so stop trying to change me...

    It's funny to see a big crowd go from calm to

    acting out in fear. The reaction are priceless.

    I wish more people would stop following the

    crowd. I wish that they would stop caring about other people's opinion about themselves. I wish that they would stop reading and watching mainstream medias sources and start to dig out information from alternative medias sources. If they could only stop wanting to constantly...

    My Own Way

    Sometimes it is good to follow the crowd if you want to lose someone. Most the time i just go my own way.

    "The price of being a sheep is boredom.

    The price of being a wolf is loneliness. Choose one or the other with great care." ~ Hugh MacLeod Can't I choose both? I'd never have to go hungry, although I'd be lonely and bored all the time... Seriously though, to be lonely but not bored is possible, but not most likely.

    Because I like being myself.

    I like different. And I don't care what other people would say. I just don't follow the crowd. 😋😋😋

    Careful when following the masses,

    more often than not, the "m" is silent.

    I'm happy to be at my own pace

    and I don't care if I'm different. Following the crowd is pretty lame. Like if some popular girl does something, a lot of people copy her. And I just want to be original and unique. People actually used to copy me back in grade 7. I had this emo hairstyle and I wore a ton of...

    This is one of the few good things I feel came out of my 10 years of social alienation, if I weren't I would have just been another trendy. I just don't want to do what everyone else does. Which is why I don't have short hair like guys are "supposed" to have or, smoke cigarettes...

    I don't follow it! I'm my own person,

    content in my ways. I have danced for the crowd!

    I never liked crowds.

    The average intelligence of each person seems to go down a few points the bigger the crowd gets. Crowds act like lemmings headed for the cliff, if one goes they all seem to feel the need to jump. I never was one to do something because it was 'in' or 'popular'. I don't hate...
