hm, guess i should TRY to be more intellectual.. i haven't really gotten into politics at all.. actually when the topic comes up i try to avoid it..not sure why. it's not that i don't care about those suffering in this world and it;s not that i don't realize how fortunate i am to be living in a country (canada) where i could live my life without having to worry everyday about these things..i should stop making excuses and try to get involved....we all have busy lives it's no excuse...
I don't really consider politics an intellectual thing...most people are very hardheaded about it and use it as a means to argue with people, for almost no reason. You get one vote and its you're business.
The only thing that bothers me right now is that I used to be more methodical about my work. Now I feel lazy all the time and I'm barely getting assignments done on time.
when i come across people that read novels and discuss politics i feel dumb. I am not dumb but just have been apathetic. which is terrible i know because there are people suffering out there but i've been consumed in my own life/thoughts and neglected what's going on around me.
I can T-O-T-A-L-L-Y relate.
Books = Knowledge
I also find it intimidating when someone puts down mainstream music and say that it's too superficial. I am usually studying and stressed out about school that when I listen to music I WANT it to be something meaningless and stupid.. Or a movie that's meaning less and just cracks stupid jokes so that I can just relax and forget about everything..give my mind a break.
Who gives a rat's a** what other people think, ma'am. Though I prefer 80's music. Theo nly mainstream I like, are songs that I can relate to.
i don't have time to read novels. Actually my brain doesn't work like that. I remember HATING english classes in school. for god sake why did we have to analyse every single thing to death....
I am guessing that our brains are long lost ______... I hated my English classes more than PE (Back then, I hated sweating) ;D. Though, I loved reading when the class became a reading group.
why couldn't we just watch the shakesperean plays instead of reading the damn things..afterall plays are suppose to be watched. did shakespeare really intend for us to analyse every single detail or was it more for entertainment purposes
Shynesssucks, you freak me out. You're taking the words out of my mouth!
Those people that put down anything mainstream and spend their time at Stabucks reading books ... have this intimidating aura
Intimidating aura lol That's the reason why I never had any friends. Normal poeple are too much, and most shy people have an intimidating knowledgeable aura. My goodness, I tried so many times to make friends with shy people but, every person I met was a bookworm, no offense of course. All the shy people I ever met(while in High School) were those that got a 4.0 GPA. I have nothing against them. It's just that the ONLY thing we had in common was our shyness. Period. Back then I felt so alone.
