    I Like Ot Have Intellectual Conversations Also

    but unfortunately Often I cant find anybody to have some with. Thats why I have learned to get my intellectual stimilaution myself from books and other written material and I journal my thoughts and opinions down in my notebooks so those are my intellectual conversations...

    To Ask Or Not To Ask? That Is The Question

    I don't know if other people do this and I'm not sure if this is exactly the right way to describe this but I am the type of person that asks a lot of questions. They can be small, trivial little nothings or they can be seriously personal. But why do I ask them? Well for many...

    Ok I'm just gonna say it.

    .. Don't message me "how are you?" Right of the bat. I don't know you and that is such a general question. Just be honest, perhaps if you are going to message me, message me with why you wanted to message me. I'm not on here to date, be sexual, or whatever else bullshit the...

    Life feels like walking on a tight rope.

    .. I'm constantly trying to remain balance, holding a pole with essentially work on one end and play on the other and I am in the middle walking, wiggling, muscles shaking and jaw clenched holding this pole to keep from falling off. Is this nirvana? (The middle way)... I find...

    Conversation Or Debate?

    I guess my question is "can you agree on a topic and still have an intellectual conversation?". In my opinion I think it may be difficult to break down the topic without entering it from different points of view. Without different approaches you really can't use the other...

    You know I act very different here on Ep.

    When Im messaging people here, I am more comfortable talking about myself. In real life, not much. Im usually on the receiving end of conversations. I barely talk about myself. Maybe because there isnt really much to talk about that they dont know already. Maybe that is true or...

    I'm craving intellectual stimulation.

    I'm in my third year of university, and I absolutely love it. I love learning about the mind and its capacities, about psychology and the mechanisms of the human brain. You would think studying all the time would make me want to relax at the end of the day and let my brain relax...

    I just made a vow to myself to never pity again.

    Never make myself stoop so low for anxiety's sake. And if people can't accept my weirdness. . . Oh well, **** them.

    I am a curious person with a love

    for learning. I almost hate the way that sounds myself, "a love for learning"- It just sounds like propaganda: stay in drugs and off school kids! Growing up I was obedient, keeping introverted by still I was a dreamer. As life progressed I broke out of my shell and learned to...

    .. But what does one do when often the fears that one has seem to become reality?

    There should be a better way to get messages, like a chat line and not have to use the refresh button so much. I also suggest an option to delete conversations permanently.
