Philosophy: The Sequel.

Let me start out with this is not an attack on anybody. I lurrrve the person who made the post which I am responding to, but I have an opinion that I would like to state:

-My wardrobe does indulge in slutty clothing sometimes, though Uggs are made of dead animals so they are BADDDD.
-I am involved in no extracurriculars.
-The few talents I have are abstract, and I rarely display them. Which makes it sound like it's prostitution or something but seriously it's not lol.
-I don't even know if I'm GOING to college, much less what I would do once I got the hell out.
-Intimate relationships are extremely appealing to me. Not TOOOOO intimate, but y'know.
-I want to help the world, and I know what reforms I would make, but I don't think I'm informed enough to know that they would work.
-I am irresponsible, and my leadership skills basically sum up to bossy.
-Isn't spreading yourself out and experiencing life healthy?? Isn't all that matters that you enjoy something, no matter how well you do it?
-"We don't need no education!/We don't need no thought control!"
-Hah, well, I do in fact settle for mediocrity if I don't care about the subject.
-Oh, cmon. It's the 21st century over here. Unless you live in a tree, material objects (which include textbooks, instruments, even classrooms) are important. I agree, however, that they should under no curcumstances be considered more important than those we care about.
-Aren't we all on our way to doom, by such logic?
-Some people love sports. Not me, personally, but there's nothing wrong with them until you start caring.
-Parents should be handled with extreme caution, like dynomite.
***THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART***
-Despite such principles, I am not a bad person.

And now for some philosophy of my own:

When you take life too seriously, when you eschew things that evoke emotion, when you think that pure hatred of the world's problems will solve them, you will end up painted into a corner. Maybe some people LOVE feild hockey and soccer, maybe college isn't right for them. Hell, most people don't even know yet what they are going to do when they get out of high school, much less when they get out of college. If a 16-year-old is too young for a romantic relationship, isn't that same 16-year-old much too young to make decisions about IMPORTANT things like college and that? Hate doesn't motivate, nor does intimidation. All it will do is break down and discourage. Hell, dude, I don't think I'm a bad person because i'm generally apathetic. I care about some things, but I don't get manic. Because when I do that, when any person does that, they will not end up happy.

And happiness is key.

You're not a bad person, and I don't hate anyone, I just go against the conformityness.
