I don't belong in my family. They're all Christian and have picked a single view on life. I don't belong in this world. Almost everybody embraces consumerism and the "norm". I hate what capitalism has done to our society. It has even affected our holidays. Christmas is all about presents, fellowship and what to me seems like a very artificial happiness. I see what is and what is today just bothers me on a regular basis. Celebrity worship is commonplace, everybody has to have the newest phone or gadget. What ever happened to meeting people and doing stuff? Instead we find stuff that gives us stuff to do. I, for one, don't want to join into a culture that wants to be spoonfed happiness. I want a culture that will find happiness and pursue it. When I say everybody, I don't mean everybody because I'm sure that I'm not alone. But something is rotten in the state of Earth.
