Wanna know why I haven't watched TV since 9th grade? 'Cause most of the good stuff is gone. News? Yeah right. I don't give too much to dramas and the MTV2 silliness for being 21 years old, but if you like it there is no problem, humans tastes always differ cause it's how we are.. Plus, why wait till X o'clock to watch your shit? Download torrents.
Then the commercials come on. Picture perfect families, leaving their houses or taking trips, who to trust their insurance to, fresh out of college, keep our businesses alive! Invest in us while you invest in others. The sex symbolism in most of the cosmetic/clothesline/liquor categories have always been around so that's nothing new, but I'll stick to Youtube until they keep fucking up and being bought over by other people.
Will your life require a chunk of your existence through college?
Do you only become a man when you have a girlfriend or start a family?
Is your existence suddenly validated once you have a child to raise?
Should it be this way? That all depends on who you ask.
Maybe it's sink or swim with financial success, but you can't fear the reaper.
The answers others give you will always be different, and that's the overwhelming thing.
Why not understand all logics of people's thoughts to accept it?
Moral of the story: Fuck the news, Fuck TV and it's ways of constantly nudging you to think that "This is what a family does. These are what happy relationships look like." "This is why you should own your own business."
Write your own map and find your place on it as you progress, learn, age and strengthen.
Doing what makes you happy is the most important aspect.
Opposition from others will always find you, but it's our duty to squelch it.
Just one nightly bowlpack and creativity tags along. :3
