I guess it's my friends. I would consider myself an epicurist in that I believe friendship is an important ingredient in happiness. I put a great deal of value into my friendships and I guess I feel passionate for the connection I have with these people.
If they saw I wrote this though, I would get torn to pieces lol

I like Tina Fey, so here is a pic of her.

I'm a junior guy in high school whose interests are mainly choir and trapshooting. I have five great friends, all of whom are in choir. One is a senior who also plays basketball. One is a sophomore who also plays football and does trapshooting. One is a junior who also plays baseball, basketball, and football. Another is a sophomore who also does trapshooting. And the fifth main one is a junior who is also a really good runner. I hang out with each one frequently.

I have a good amount of friends, albeit none of them are as close as the previous five I've mentioned. The majority of these friends are sophomores and juniors, especially sophomores. Because I'm a junior, I feel like my sophomore friends look up to me as a leader and therefore respect me more than other people would. I really enjoy this feeling, and this is one of the main reasons I have a large amount of sophomore friends. I hang out with these friends fairly often.

When I'm by myself, I mostly spend time on the Internet or watching TV. I don't do much else by myself.

I don't talk to many girls... I really only talk to three. However, I'm currently pursuing one of them romantically (coincidentally, she's a sophomore). I already asked her to prom, and she said yes. She's very big into choir, like myself. She's also very smart. Physically, she's fairly average, but that's not a priority for me. She also has a great personality. We talk and text a lot. People have told me she likes me back, but I'm being very cautious, as my last several relationships haven't ended well.

That's me.
#72728 to #72705 - kampi (03/23/2013) [-]
Oh boy, here we go!

My social life exists of school. Mostly.
I'm in a class of 12 people, including me, and every single one of them is completely different, yet the same. Everyone has their own great personality. They all radiate their own beautiful soul. Sure, there is always this one bitch-diva in class, but she has a great personality too, depending on how you look at it. She's got the spirit of a soldier and the words of a rhetorician. She has fought through her life because of big dilemmas and problems.
We don't hang out, but we will. Someday.
Then, we have my best friend. He's an energetic, short and carefree man. He's also the class' athlete. He's a wondrous, interesting, mystic man, because he loves to write. Mostly fantasy, but still. I believe it's one of his passions. He likes to challenge himself, even his own creativity. He's trustfull and a really good listener.
We hang out. After all, there's no one that can replace him.
Aaand the rest of them, yes. To put it simply:
One girl is really cute, she's also really imaginative and has a good sense of humor. Kind fellow.
Another girl is happy all the time. She's practising shooting, and loves to spend time with friends. She also loves gases.
Someone is really shy. She's a tiny woman with a dirty sense of humor, but god, does she love to discuss things. Not religion/economy/politics, but things that happened for example yesterday. Simple, but cute.

Yeah, those are the social life of mine. Otherwise I'm here on the internet or all by myself. Outside taking long walks, inside playing guitar, etc..

You other guys who've taken your time to read,
**huge hugs and high high-fives!

...I see the gigantic drama-wave, flow all over the place. Prejudice, narrow-minded people, all over the place.
You are allowed to think that. It's fine. As long as people are pleased, I'm happy.
By the way, don't insult people when you don't have any kind of information about that specific person. It's not good for you, I promise.
Keep on trying with whatever you do, and here's another tip:
Smile.

You come off a little pretentious.
User avatar #72763 to #72762 - kampi (03/23/2013) [-]
I don't really care about what people think of me, but when others are so narrow-minded that they try to insult me based on nothing, I can get a tad pretentious.
I've been insulted a big part of my life, but I have no intention really to be an ass back. I just want to be happy, and I just want others to do what they can to be happy. I try to overlook others "bad" behaviour and stay happy. I see no reason being grumpy, mean or sad when you don't have any reason for it.

My essay writing method is basically spend an hour on the internet letting my brain chill, stare at the essay for 10 minutes while I get used to it again, then write about 500 words in a frenzy of creativity in about 20-30 minutes, then go back to the internet. It means it takes forever to get anything done, but I do enjoy the internet.

Anyone else do this or do I just suck?

How do I stop being a beta?


I seriously don't know how
User avatar #72650 to #72618 - zzonked (03/22/2013) [-]
I could probably write a 10,000 word essay on that shit, but I'll just give some short advice here.

A lot of it comes from within and the subconscious mind. Now, you know in your conscious mind that people aren't all out to get you and you could probably be honest, forthright and confident and nothing bad would happen, but your subconscious says otherwise. In the past you've probably got it stuck in there that the easiest way to survive is to be quiet and passive or whatever makes up your beta tendencies. Your subconscious is your pal, so he's taking that information and feeding it to you all the time because he thinks it's going to help you out. You basically need to take away that information and give your subconscious new information. There's tons of ways to do this, but I just tell myself things at night over and over until I believe them, plus I forgive myself for my mistakes and such. This helps to get rid of the bad information and sort of sets in some new information, yet you have to go out and put it into practice or nothing will change. If you don't go out there and believe the new information, make it true, then you'll eventually just slip back into old habits because you can't see the new stuff having a basis in reality. You can control the information your subconscious feeds you, it just takes some thought. Also bear in mind most of that stuff in there gets created during childhood and other formative years, because you're much less likely to be discerning with the things people tell you.

There's tons of other stuff I could say, but I think this was the thing that helped me get started most. I've paraphrased a lot of information here alone, there's more nuances to this shit.

Stop thinking in alpha/beta. Thats a feat that can seriously make everyone "beta" either that or a completely Asshole, who thinks he´s way better than he actually is.

What will Americans accent sound like in 500 years? Do you think a British, European like accent will ever return?
User avatar #72590 to #72578 - vivapinatapro (03/21/2013) [-]
No, American accents, especially in the south/midwest, have remained unchanged for nearly 200 years.

Syllable? Not slang. Accent. The sound. Mexicans have a distinct sound even when speaking proper English. Same thing for Americans, French, British, you name it. Could the sound change? Could Americans ever develop a more British Manchurian sound?
User avatar #72596 to #72595 - thisisspartah (03/21/2013) [-]
im not sure
User avatar #72598 to #72596 - eight (03/21/2013) [-]
Well fuck it. I'm gonna start speaking like a Brit around friends and family and maybe they'll pick up on it, although they have tried the imitation before and sound horrible. I hate my annoying Florida sound.
User avatar #72645 to #72598 - martycamp (03/22/2013) [-]
I'm sorry. Speak like a Brit? Do you mean Scottish, English, Northern Irish or Welsh?
User avatar #72651 to #72645 - eight (03/22/2013) [-]
Any and all I suppose.
User avatar #72652 to #72651 - martycamp (03/22/2013) [-]
That would be one hell of a mangled mess...
User avatar #72653 to #72652 - eight (03/22/2013) [-]
Perhaps, but isn't it pretty common to have mixed accents in such a diverse area? The accent I'm going for is like Liam and Noel Gallagher's. I think it's referred to as Mancunian?
User avatar #72654 to #72653 - martycamp (03/22/2013) [-]
Not particularly. There are loads of different accents even within the separate countries. In Scotland, you have the 'Wegie accent, the Stirling accent, the Edinburgh accent, the "Highland" accent. In England, you have all sorts like the Scouse, the Geordie, loads of different Londoner ones, or even the Mancunian like you say. Accents only get muddled when you move from one area to another and spend a significant amount of time there.
#72657 to #72654 - eight (03/22/2013) [-]
Manc is definitely the one I try to pull off. I figure I am doing it right when no one understands what I'm saying.

We, sadly, are delving into a degenerative state as of late. The european accent was in a time where proper pronunciation was key and common practice. Nowadays "aight" is "alright" and so on and so forth.

But, interesting enough, there is asuch a wide variety of different accents in America, expecially in deep countries like louisiana and such where accents are deep-rooted.

I believe its either going to slightly get better or its just going downhill form here. Definitely not going back to european accents. Due to the lack of grammar schools or schools stressing grammatical excellence and proper use of pronunciation.
User avatar #72591 to #72585 - vivapinatapro (03/21/2013) [-]
There is evidence suggesting Americans never spoke with the current European accents.
User avatar #72592 to #72591 - HURLEYSURFERDUDE (03/21/2013) [-]
Of course not with current accents. But if you listen to people in deep New Orleans, they still use french words and their accents resemble bits of french. In Boston you hear more irish and sicilian roots.

Where is this evidence? Im not calling you out or anything, I just want to read it. I find history fascinating. Link?

Ok here is a scenario. There is some type of mass extinction which kills the majority of the world. Would accents change in the next 500 years in America? And when I say accent I mean more of the sound, not necessarily the use of slang or grammatically correct words. I could say "ight" with an American accent and a British accent. I mean the distinction of the sound. Could that change?
User avatar #72597 to #72594 - HURLEYSURFERDUDE (03/21/2013) [-]
Hm, very good question! Well let's think about what accents are, they are the way somebody sounds while talking. A way of talking where everyone who comes from that area/ grew up in that area sounds the same way. Basically if you and 5 friends grew up in a town with ana ccent, all 5 of you will have that accent because you learned from others to speak that way due to long term exposure.

such as a southerner who lives in new york can come back after 8 years and will have a new yorker accent.

Id say it wouldnt change unless there is a force that changes how everyone speaks. Because if you dont change it, then your kids and your kids' kids will learn to speak from their surroundings. So unless they move somewhere else they will keep their accents.

using that path Id have to say no, I dont think it would change from how it is. YES we hail from immigrants and our accents have changed from before. But remember they LEFT their original areas and they developed their own accents for this land.

as in they elft their area where everyone sounded alike to a new land where everyone sounded different. So the accents merged to what is now commonly known as the American accent. As long as we dont have outside forced tampering or adding to our accent with another accent added to the mix (like russia takes over the US and we all speak russian or develop the accent) what we currently sound like should not change.
User avatar #72599 to #72597 - eight (03/21/2013) [-]
I suppose your right, unless we are invaded, it won't be changing. I also would like to note that I agree considerably that where you grow up influences your sound.

For some reason I have always been able to imitate others accents, ever since I was a young boy watching TV. Over the years as we went on vacation to different places around the U.S my parents noticed something odd. Wherever we went, I would and still do, change my voice to sound like the people in the region. I didn't realize I was doing this until they pointed it out to me. Don't know why. I adapt quickly, and quite accurately when it comes to sound.

Although, I suck at speaking a foreign language and getting the accent right, go figure. If it is English I can sound like it.

Humans subconsciously imitate the speech patterns of people they live around in order to blend in and seem like one of them. It's something in our evolved brains. It's pretty fucking cool when you think about it.

But that was an interesting topic to discuss. Thank you for the mental stimulus. Have a thumb and a nice evening.
