I am sorry, Engineers...

My mum told me some time ago, that the only reason people misunderstand me is because I am not with people who understand me. Meaning simply, that I need to be with people who think the same way like I do and then I would not feel misunderstood.

Basically, she said that my strategy sucks. Instead of becoming a recluse and keeping away from human beings, I am supposed to be finding people who are also like me(perhaps she could not bring herself to say other "weirdos" like you hehehehehe).

This week, I spent time with a friend of mine who I am not so close to because I have made no effort to do so.. We are alike in many ways...we both have a serious tendency to become hippies. Anyway, we had a very good time and it felt really good to be able to do things that I like to do. Since Jojo left, (damn that bloody England), I have not had a friend to go to places with.

My mum was right. I am always just with the wrong people.

I am sorry, Engineers...

1. This ur habit of digging out youtube videos from archives that even they don't know that they have....na real wah

2. i got u man...why u worried about everyone else?

3. Being a recluse is sometimes unavoidable especially when u r surrounded by a certain methodology of thought. I mean, seriously, do you think u would function well in typical Nigerian social circles? If you wish to reduce your IQ points, fine...but if not, I am sorry, you are going to have to adopt some sort of self preservation, one of which is keeping to yourself.

Engineers?

"@catwalq: I don't function well in ANY social cirle...hehehehhehehehe"

I don't believe any part of that, except maybe the laugh at the end! Blogger counts as a social circle, and you function very well in it.

I sympathize with this post and the comments.

Anybody have advice for locating hippies in Lagos? I just want to make some friends here, with negligible loss of IQ and integrity. Google was no help. :(
