share a coke with the indescribable, omnipresent feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach

"Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions."

How do you feel sure of yourself that what you say/believe isn't as much bullshit as the status quo?


Not all “status quo” is wrong or misguided. I would say that I am skeptical of any status quo, because I believe that it’s too easy to avoid doing critical thinking. The most popular opinion usually tends to be the one that’s easiest to believe, one that is clear, one that is black-and-white. But life is messy. There’s nothing at all wrong with that, it just means that if we want to truly understand life in order to live it to the fullest, we’re going to have to confront that mess and do our honest best to make sense of it.

Context is everything.
