-The true contrarian does not simply go against the popular opinion, but instead thinks for himself-
I am flip-flopping about my opinion of facebook, but If you follow me on facebook, you'll be happy about my most recent realization. It hit me rather suddenly that I was shunning the 21st century for no reason at all. The realization I had was truly to try and be the best version of myself. And while there are aspects of the past that I believe apply better in our age, I also want to embrace the 21st century. After all, I drive a car, live in a 21st century home, listen to rap, love animation and brush my teeth, so I will try and balance my digital presence as well.
I still think this age is too much digital and not enough physical, but it's something that I am a part of. To be yourself in this age is also difficult because of the proximity of influences. You can simply search styles of all ages now on the internet.
I know now that these are all tools and the zeitgeist of the time has a strong digital component.
-I continue to try and find the balance day by day-
