ive always been the weird kid , and ive always hated my life to some extent
ill be leaving highschool soon, so that could give me the opprotunity to reinvent myself
besides working out, i plan to try and become a completely different person. So i need help on what hobbies i should do.
What are some normal, conventional hobbies that aren't considered nerdy?
you will regret it. trust me. "normal" people are boring as fuck and most dont really do anything. they are normal because they are uncultured plebs. you can still be social and confident while having obscure hobbies. you just need to find a balance, add the odd few normal interests into your life but dont complete convert. some normal hobbies are going the gym, watching tv, going on Facebook and talking shit about people and drinking. they dont do much else. being the weird kid isn't really due to your hobbies, its because you lack social skills. i have pretty obscure hobbies but i am confident and get on well with most people.
a lot of this. especially true after highschool.
remember that highschool is the palce where you are forced to hang out with everyone in your fucking neighborhood and talk to them.
college is the place where you dont have to talk to anyone you dont want to, where everyones selected to go there for SOME reason, and most everyone there is at least TRYING to be a smarticle nerd.
life doesn't get 'perfect' after highschool but it certainly gets better. plus most nerd shit is mainstream these days anyway.
all my friends just play board games and video games.
this is true. people in college are complete different. in high school a lot of people where dicks to me but in college most people are fine and avoid trouble. and yeah, a lot of nerd shit is becoming more mainstream. Every guy i know in college plays video games. Also in college they take bullying more seriously so you could easily get someone kicked out if they try to cause shit.
What is the definition of normal? There's nothing normal, unless you mean the majority... believe me, it's better to be yourself and find true friends who respect you for who you are, than fake people who only hang out with you because you're popular or 'normal'... You're a person who is capable of setting their own standard or norm on how you want to behave. :)
Getting caught up in others' definition of normal leads to continually changing who you are to conform to those standards. Just try new things, if you like them and they're legal, keep doing them. Have passions you enjoy and you consider productive and your life will inevitably get better.
Dude, watching anime and social skills are not mutually exclusive. I do it. You just care too much about what people think of you.
Trying to be "normal" is probably the lamest goal on the planet. You'll just be another forgotten face of this desolate rock.
so much htis. how will forcing yourself to do things you dont like make you happy? there arent any 'real' bullies in college. and unless you were getting 'beat up' in highschool you shouldnt worry about those either.
jsut do waht you want, and go to the clubs with people who do the same things. all colleges have em. and their filled with any sort of weird nerd shit you can imagine.
i have friends, i just feel like i have a lot of negative things associate with nerd shit. i think if i abounded them and tried to be a more common guy, i could maybe achieve a more conventional happiness.
