What is Lifestyle?

This world, in my honest belief, is for the most part made up of lies. Everyone lies to someone daily, unless you're the Pope or George Bush, and then you get to lie to MILLIONS of people every day. Myself included. I give a fake smile to my mother in the morning, ask her questions I don't care enough to know the answers to anyways. I'm currently just a little bit pissed off at her anyways, so being false with her seems "the right thing to do".

Why in the hell am I even writing this? Because someone else already had "Punks" covered. Damnit. That's basically all I know. That, and lying. Due to lack of anything else to do with my time, besides sleep, at 12:50 A.M, I've decided to write about what I would like to call,

"The Lifestyle of Lies"
*My Name Here*

Haha! I lied to you about something! I led you to believe that I actually gave a shit about you. I led you to believe that I was writing this for you! I've lied several times so far, but here is one truth: I honestly need to do some research on this. I'll post my conclusions tomorrow. Good Morning Darkforum.

for you to read when you sober up again

life·style also life-style or life style P Pronunciation Key (lfstl)
n.

A way of life or style of living that reflects the attitudes and values of a person or group: “It was a millionaire's lifestyle on the pocketbook of a hairdresser” (People).

Usage Note: When lifestyle became popular a generation ago, a number of critics objected to it as voguish and superficial, perhaps because it appeared to elevate habits of consumption, dress, and recreation to categories in a system of social classification. Nonetheless, the word has proved durable and useful, if only because such categories do in fact figure importantly in the schemes that Americans commonly invoke when explaining social values and behavior, as in Rachel Brownstein's remark that “an anticonventional lifestyle is no sure sign of feminist politics, or indeed, of any politics at all.” Fifty-three percent of the Usage Panel accepts the word in Bohemian attitudes toward conventional society have been outstripped and outdated by the lifestyles of millions of young people. An even greater numberfully 70 percentaccepts the word in Salaries in the Bay Area may be higher, but it may cost employees as much as 30 percent more to maintain their lifestyles, where the context requires a term that implies categorization based on habits of consumption.

I read the first line of your post. That was all. I don't like reading things from people like you. Now I'm not lying, today is brutal truth day. People like you, who post things like what you just posted, are among my least favorite of people. I would ask that if you do indeed decide to post again, please do not.

I wasn't drunk either. I just don't sleep much.

No, he was just dismissing the rest of his post because, from what I can tell, he doesn't like the patronizing tone that accompanied it.

Now Now now, you got me all wrong! I never claimed to be an expert at anything! I'm only putting out this idea I had, and look what happens! Everyone gets down on me here for having different views! I thought people here would be a bit more accepting, but I guess not. Jesus Christ, it's just like high skool. only worse, because I knew I couldn't expect the high skool kids to care. and, I only read the first part of his post because I couldn't get a handle on all big words. Sooooo I went and grabbed my dictionary, and managed to read the rest of it. The tone didn't impress me, but the message itself did. Anyways, I'd just like to say whatever, and post this message.

Whatever.

Well, it's another late night, and I've been thinking. People lie for a reason, but they don't lie for a purpose. They just do it, and then when they are found out, they usually apologize. But they don't really mean what they say. Lying is an addiction. I'll think of some more stuff to add to this later tonight I'm sure. But for now, don't make fun of my ideas, okay?

i never really bothered lying to people, i dont see why i should. people are almost shocked at how i can be so brutally honest to anyone even when i m right in their face. people should do that more often instead of trying to suck everyones dick and make em feel better all the time.

~yawns~ its late at night and as always i am bored.

someone who doesnt lie to me is closer to being my friend than anyone else.

Yes, lying is bad. That is why I don't do it. I'm just honest, but I suppose that on here, one can afford to be anyway. That is the privilige of anonymity.
