I totally forgot I had this thing. Howdy everyone. Lots been going on in my life recently, lots of big changes. But rest assured, I'm doing well and I am indeed still alive. Although most of you guys would know that if you follow me on Facebook or are on the chat with any regularity.
So yeah! Been Belting out Otakuboards Podcasts, fragging people in Call Of Duty: Black Ops, Working and recently have been going back to the gym. I'm proud to say that I've been feeling great and I've lost five pounds. I'm going to be taking a vacation somewhere this summer. Haven't decided where to yet. But it's gonna be epic.
I don't usually do this sort of blog thing, because I'm a capable person who is able to vent his frustration to the proper channels and not make a big deal about it. But this isn't one of those cases.
I was having a conversation with a friend of mine and we were discussing grades in school. She was talking about her GPA and I mentioned (jokingly) that I wouldn't say mine, because I didn't want to seem like I was boasting. To which my friend quips:
"LOL. You're probably rocks. Thats cool. No offense, but I'm living on my own, so I still think I have one up on you."
The conversation continues where I try to brush it off, because apparently being a 21 year old who still lives with his parents is a bad thing in this person's eyes. And then I get this zinger.
"Still, I consider myself a better person for having gone it mostly alone. Maybe someday you'll know what it feels like."
Hold the phone....what?
I'm only 21, so I don't understand how living with my parents is a bad thing at this stage in life. A lot of kids stay with their parents through college. For me, economically, it was a wiser decision to do so. And it was a wise decision to not have to have my parents in another country while I went to school. Just be cause you live on your own, doesn't make you a more mature person or a better person. It makes you a person who lives on their own.I can see the independence part of things, and in that aspect they have a valid point. But I still don't see why independence makes you a better person.
Now, I don't think that it's too far fetched to call this person condescending and quite honestly, a huge youknowwhat in this situation...but maybe I'm being too sensitive and taking things out of context.
Or maybe I do need to get that independence in order to stop being seen as the "guy who still lives with his mom."
