    Conforming

    I see people here writing, I try to be as non conformist or as individual as possible. I don't try, I just happen to be this way. If for one day I could be like everyone else and be able to enjoy things I would be so happy. I feel alone in the world too often, and it scares me...

    I Have Tried

    Seriously I tried it once. Being the outcast kid wasn't getting me much female attention so I tried just being like all the other guys and actually it worked quite well. Thing is I felt like a prat, so I stopped.

    Experience, Acceptance, And Non-conformity

    Life is a journey of self-discovery. In our youngest years, all we can do is absorb the parts of the world to which we are exposed and try and make sense of it.  But as we digest the world, we often break from the Zen path and categorize it into:  things we identify with...

    Just leave me alone. I am content in living my

    life. I don't need people critiquing my life. Just leave me out of all your silliness. I don't want to be a part of your hopes, fears, insecurities, wishes. I am perfectly well the way i am. I have never sought and never seek anyone's help. I might be weird and strange.

    My Ex Boss Would Be Pleased At the Logo...

    I used to work for MM in the late 90s. :) His philosophy is all about being proud of who you are. I can't say I refuse to conform to everything, though. A sense of etiquette and respect is nice. I know how to say "**** Off" with aplomb. *beam*

    But Sometimes It Happens

    especially online. I blame it on my parents. It's a phenomena I've noticed with myself since our house first got the internet back in the 90's. It started with America Online. One day I found the local chat rooms were full of nothing but people trying to cyber. I think I was all...
