Emotional basket case- low wei kang

Question for Blogging in your English blog

What are your thoughts and feelings about being depression, loneliness, heartbreaks, being different from your peers, and having to put up a front? How do/would you deal with some of these issues.


Being different is nothing, I mean, everyone is different, its whether you want to blend in (fancy word for saying "conform") or whether you want to stand out (fancy words for "trying to be popular")

you start spouting "words of wisdom(or just plain annoying theories)" just trying to help, people label you as a hypocrite, liar and ignore you, giving you the cold shoulder, you blend in and try being popular so people notice you through various means (gossip, rumors, okay fine, so everyone does it, its whether you hurt the person emotionally or not) and you get dragged into the popularity chain where you fight desperately to be the most popular (queen bee theory, somewhere in a book, I think its called habits of a something teenager) harming tons ad tons of people, so blend with it, or against it, either way, you'll look like a hypocrite, a loner or a hurtful person (I don't think person actually cuts it but if I used any other word, the english teacher will murder me)

apparently you can just hang out with your small group of pals (what you are supposed to do) but seriously, with a class so small everyones dragged under these classifications, so nothing much I can say about that, and yes, these are my thoughts, not a lecture.

  1. Too short. and you only wrote about being different... There wasn't any or much reflection about the rest like depression, loneliness, heartbreaks etc, etc, etc. Take note of your punctuations and capital letters.
    I think being different might also mean that they are physically disabled not just blending in and out.
    Overall, I think that this reflection is alright
