Let me try to explain it...
Avoiding accepting the repercussions of an action, or to opt out of performing a duty.
In that case, you should have said something clever. (Or anything, really.) Rather, you said you remained petrified, which was kind of a cop-out.
(If you don't... Then google it or something, because that's as thorough as I'm gonna get.)
Gotta love the pep talks.
Mine is as well. I don't have any overarching goal to work toward, you know? I mean, I'll probably go to college, get a job, et cetera, but that's just serving my hardwired purpose (to reproduce.)
Sigh. Life is as boring as ever.
There's no rush to grow up. Childish thoughts do not mark maturity or lack thereof, and I'm sure a lot of these other people you see as mature have them as well.
Besides, even if you are immature, just enjoy it before you become a cynic.
It might not have been a good idea, but it was a fun one.
We pooled cash and cleaned out the nearest Goodwill of teacups.
I'd argue that your perspective is skewed. The people doubtful of their own opinions are hardly going to make a lot of posts in a polarized thread. There could just as easily be a majority of self-doubting intps, you just don't see them.
I don't know if it has affected me, but I've seen a few other people who have changed schools near as many times as me, and they all seem to be the ones with "loud" personalities. Not necessarily obnoxious, but they certainly had a very strong sense of self.
To celebrate a friend's birthday, we had a tea party. Instead of drinking the tea, we smashed and threw the teacups. Also, instead of tea, the cups were full of paint.
I don't get out much, but when I do, my friends usually make it interesting.
You could say I'm less than enthusiastic.
Especially considering the fact that I'm not sure if I'll be going to the same high school as the rest of the people I know, given the whole not having a home thing and all.
Also, today I had an orgy of pointy colors.
