Any adult who has a hobby or does anything creative is perceived as someone who "has too much time on their hands." I've noticed this even more now that I've moved to The Burbs. All activities need to result in the two main goals.
#1 Make money
Making money is very important because it will make people jealous of you. That is how you know you are better than they are. It will also make people want to fuck you, which will satisfy goal #2. [/snark]
Honestly Pinemom, I really don't understand most people. It's made any real human connections difficult for me and has resulted in a pretty solitary existence. Seems like everyone's goals in life are just pointless but if you invent your own goals then you're "weird." I've tried to play the game but I'm just not that good at it. It's why I want to go to Burning Man so bad, to see if there really is people I can connect with.
Also doing your own thing is scary. There is no one to follow and you have to blaze your own trail. No one to point you in the right direction or give you advice on how to pick up the pieces if something goes wrong. Truthfully, I'm both uber-excited and scared shitless to go to BM. My thoughts bounce between...
"I don't know. Maybe this isn't such a good idea. Maybe I won't fit in. Maybe, maybe,maybe...."
