    The Man Who Follows The Crowd Will Get No Farther Than The Crowd

    "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.If you try it,you will be lonely often,and sometimes frightened.But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."-Friedrich Nietzsche         ...

    ...

    I value individuality.  I like being me and I am drawn to people that know how to be themselves and aren't chasing after the "in crowd."

    Be Yourself

    Not who you think I want you to be or society expects. Respect yourself enough to get your own identity, instead of stealing mine.

    Couldn't Come Up With A Title.

    I find it so interesting to see all those different people out there. And I certainly admire people who don't give a damn and just do their own thing. People like this make life more colourful.

    The Nypd Went From Zeroes To Heroes... Then Back To Zeroes

    On September 20th 2011 hundreds of protesters gathered on Wall Street in a peaceful and constitutionally protected demonstration. For 4 days this demonstration managed to stay peaceful and abide by the laws that were set forth by the constitution for such an assembly to occur...

    Quirky People

    I like quirky people because they are more genuinely themselves. I like geeks because no two are alike. Growing up Preppie was practically a dress code at my school. I tried to fit in but didn't have the money for the real thing...clothes from L.L. Bean. So in the tenth grade I...

    Not For The Clone Minded

    The best thing about being humans, is that we are not clones (for the most part) of one another. Each unique, and different. I don't conform to the "norm" and seemingly attract to the different. I like learning new things, seeing people not like myself.

    Pressure

    A monologue i wrote for my Gr.12 English class in summer school;     I look in the mirror....question "Do i like what i see?" I'm human, vulnerable, naive the target to influence bound to make mistakes. I have the option to feed my impulse with curiosity to reach a party...

    Drawn To The Differences ...

    I've always enjoyed people who are different.  People who have something original to say and who are creative in one way or another.   I think just about all my friends in the non-cyber world are creative in one way or another.  Most are musicians or involved in the music...

    To The Beat Of A Different Drum

    I love non-conformity because those are the same ones who think outside the box. If we all thought the same, dressed the same, ate the same what a drab and boring world it would be. Not to mention the technology we would not have because someone decided to do things a different...

    Carbon copy people are

    so boring. Individuals make life interesting and fun. I guess that's why I feel so drawn to artists and other creative individuals.
