Be your self

28 comments
I'm so sick of everyone trying to be cool in this city. It's getting really boring and everyone likes the same things and looks the same and acts the same. You're not unique for liking things when you were a kid "that everyone else likes now." Everyone who grew up in Nova Scotia in the late 80s/early 90s has the same cultural reference base. The reason why 90s are cool again is because people in their 20s are feeling nostalgic. No one is cooler or more unique than anyone else because they like the same shit they did when they were 9. Everyone's always trying to distinguish themselves as unique but it ends up sounding and looking the same. It's really boring. And this city is too small for copycats. Just be your self. Don't make social associations with people based on other people's perceptions. I can't hear one more person say what they liked as as a kid is now "cool" and therefore they're "cooler" for liking it "first." It's childish and not very individual so just grow up already. That said, if being yourself is someone who has an innate need to be accepted by others, get yourself to a therapist, pronto.—old grump
