One of the most interesting thing that I have learnt throughout being in different environments is how people change and adapt. This is not necessarily a good thing or a bad thing but merely strange and got me thinking about how society adapts to create different norms in different societies. One of the biggest things I see in teenagers is this constant need to be approved, this is completely normal as we naturallly want to fit in and adapt. I know a lot of people who are worried all the time about being judged, excluded because of certain characteristics or feel they can't do what they want to do because of people's reactions.
One of the main reasons I started this blog was to do something a little bit against the grain and shake up some people's feelings and perceptions and hopefully express what others are too afraid to say. One of the most important things I have learned is to do what you love and want to do no matter whether or not people judge you (this is obviously to an extent as please don't murder people from this advice). Those people that are telling you that something will be 'moist' or whatever are to some extent jealous of your confidence and ability to do what they can't, they rationalise their incapableness by demeaning other people's achievements to make themselves feel better. These aren't bad people as we all have our faults but all you can do is just ignore it and realise that the only way you are going to make a difference or do something worth remembering is by standing out a little and doing what you really want to and what makes you happy.
