I have no idea where my writing book has gone to. I've been in kind of a rut lately. Writers block, you could say. You see, if you're anything like me, you get easily bored of things after awhile.
But there was always one thing I never got bored of.Anime. It was my mine and my friends' escape from everyday society. Where we could truly be ourselves and not worry about others.
But as i exited public School and entered highschool in grade nine, I learned you have to fit "normal" people standards, or you will be deemed "weird" or "unpopular". So I set it my personal mission to obtain this "popularity" everyone spoke of. Or whatever my version of it was. I suppose you could say I obtained it, and I thought I had everything in the world. I slowly drifted away from my public school friends, and even though we still talked, there was something missing there.
I lost all of my creativity and my spark, and I went on living every day over and over, all the same crap endlessly repeating itself. I am now in the last semester of Grade 12 and understand where I went wrong. You shouldn't ever change for anyone else, for society or your parents, or what your best friends say is cool enough.
It is so true in every single way. I deeply regret losing my ties with not just anime, but kind of with myself. I know longer want to try to be the person everyone wants me to be, I want to be the person I want to be.
You see, i believe the key to a successful life is surrounding yourself with the right kind of people. People who will accept, understand, and support who you are every step of the way. So, I suppose i'm done now with my intense babbling, and i'm sorry about my lack of a short story.
Stay Tuned! Or..whatever..
