I refrain from being too well-known, outstanding or “popular”, and here’s why:
- I’m happy being a loser
Pokémon, Terraria, WoW, Sims, Project Gorgon, reading, writing, dinosaurs, 9Gag, Cyanide and Happiness… C’mon, I’m not gonna give all that up just for a “social life”.
- Being well known comes with too much drama
I would never, ever, want to be the subject of rumours, gossip and whatnot. Hell, I don’t even want to be talked about in the first place!
- I like being left alone
I despise crowds, and I refrain from social interaction (if I start a conversation with you, be honoured). I very much enjoy being that quiet kid at the back of class, either writing or reading. Perhaps doodling, too.
- I don’t want to conform just to “fit in”
I don’t care about public opinion – I do what I want because it makes me happy, no matter how ridiculous it looks, including carrying a penguin bag to school or using a kick-scooter to get to the train station. Being well-known means that people will expect me to conform to “social norms”, and I have never really been one to do so.
- I don’t like going out
Anyone who remotely knows me knows that I don’t like leaving my room; I enjoy being in my room, doing my own stuff with nobody to talk to (if I invite you into my room, be honoured) and nobody to judge me.
