It's all a lie, it's all so fake.... I was just thinking....there are things about the kids around me that I really despise. We all know about all the kids out there who cut themselves, who listen to hard metal, who call themselves "punk, emo, outcasts, goths" etc. Well the truth is....it's all a lie! These people dress strange and act strange (wearing all black, chains, "punk" bands, Hot Topic, etc) because they say they are "being themselves" Well look around you. You're not! They try so hard to be themselves, but half the world is doing the same thing. They try to run away from the trends, but it's turned into exactly what they were running from in the first place. Why should you have to TRY to be yourself? I mean it should come naturally without having to buy a certain kind of clothes. and newsflash people: being yourself doesn't been you have to be totally different then everyone else! why is it so bad that anyone is like you? why? im not saying "go with the trend" or "everyone who shops at Hot Topic and stuff is stupid" im not saying that. it's just that you SAY u r different, but ure just stuck in another trend. ya know? Oh. and all those people who go around moaning and groaning and complaing about how their lives are falling down around them, how life betrayed them, how life sucks, this and that....it's not true! life is being served to you on a silver platter. why is it "cool" to act like you hate life??? gosh. and people who say, "no one likes me, im an outcast, a loser, blah blah" its so untrue! you AREN'T losers, unless you're TRYING to be one!! this is true for everyone except for people where it's actually true. who are clinicaly depressed. but sometimes, it escalates so far that you just say you hate life so much it starts to become true. ya know? and people who are like "i was uncool before being uncool was cool" they are such liars. ugh i can't even explain this one. and don't get me wrong...i like Hot Topic...i love some of their stuff. Does that make me a poser??? no!!! Stop putting down Avril!! I mean, peeps say she is a poser cos of her clothes. What snobs! She was one of the first to start wearing ties over her clothes and stuff, and let's face it, you followed. who are you to call her a poser? who is she posing as? everyone else? so are you. why cant u just sit back and enjoy her music? (unless u dont enjoy it...) but do you see what i mean? sorry if I offend anyone, but this is how I've always felt.
