Reflecting on Conformity in Society

We’re in the process of discovering our ignorance

People fill our minds with thoughts, media bombards us with ideas

Calculus and Chemistry and why can’t you wear stripes with plaid

It doesn’t have to make sense

Fridays are for frats, Tuesdays are for tequila

And Americans don’t take gap years

Selfie Sunday Throwback Thursday society says

Don’t ask why.

Adulthood is never-ending childhood

We’re lost in an eternal game of Simon Says

But who gave Simon the right to control us?

I won’t die a slave of society and I don’t exist simply to survive

Balance work and play or have all work and no play

It’s up to us/the boss of us

She refuses to take advice from anyone

But can’t say no to the CEO

Be your own boss, be the queen ♕

Sometimes plan B takes away from plan A

It’s all or nothing.

  1. I have an interesting idea for all of us dreamers and deep thinkers. It is often difficult for us to find people to have deep and meaningful conversations with. We enjoy deeper connections with people, but they are often hard to come by.

    I started a new blog called “outsider olympics”. I have always felt like an outsider, and I don’t see it as a bad thing, although I do often wish I could feel a greater sense of belonging. I think we could increase that sense of belonging by collectively connecting to ideas like yours, which can get a lot more interesting from an outsider’s point of view. This is more or less the concept behind the blog.

    I want to inspire people, to show them how interesting the world can be if you look beyond what we’ve been conditioned to think about the nature of reality. Sounds pretty abstract, but I think it could be interesting to bring people together this way.

    I think it would be cool to bring the creative people, the misfits and rebels, and the deep thinkers of the world together to celebrate what makes us special and to create something together. I would love to hear from you.
