    Society Feels So Corrupt.. Why Do People Live Like This?

    Society feels so wrong. Trying so hard to get that good job, so you can have the nice house or the nice car. People let the things they own control them. What is the point of life in our society? To get a job and feel like you have some sort of a purpose? I know some people can...

    ...and Frankly, I Don't Know If I Want To

    Sometimes I feel out of place in society, and I'm okay with that. It's less that I feel like I don't belong in society, and more that I feel like several sets of values surrounding me are what don't belong in society. I'd rather help society change to be more accepting of...

    do good in school and get good jobs if we want to survive. I don't think we're born to just work for ppl we don't even know. I think life's more about sharing experiences with people having fun and living instead of staying home watching tv and wasting ur life working.

    Pressured By Society

    It drives me crazy, sometimes, the things that modern society finds so important -  looks, status, possessions...and even though you don't want to care, society presses its values on you and measures you by those values every time you step out the door.
