Blatherings:

When you're on the internet, you realize certain stereotypes apply very fiercly, and yet at the same time they do not. For instance, a typical "nerd" could be everything you expected, the same voice as you hear in your head, the same subjects of speech. But you may find a person who knows just as much or more than a nerd, and yet talks lightly like what you may think of as a "cool dude". It really comes down to whose afraid to improve their people skills and who isn't. Some are so obsessed with their mindsets of alienation that they are
not willing to change, for whatever purpose.

  2. If they choose to be anti-social...
    Does that make them arrogant, mislead or just different?

  3. I've noticed the same things. Some people are really just frigging made up their mind and think it's cool to be like that and WILL NOT CHANGE no matter what. I myself have open mind for almost anything.

  5. That is a level of enlightenment that many will never achieve. It's a double-edge sword.

    I'm a stoner goth gamer with a line of girls and a college degree. Clearly, some of us surpass the stereotypes.

  12. I feel like this all changes after high school, but sometimes, high school can be so influential, you don't really mature/develop past that mindset :l
