When the muse takes me, I like to speak and behave anachronistically. Sadly, the neighbours don't seem to share my enthusiasm. For the last few weeks I have enjoyed taking on the persona of a courtly troubadour from the Middle Ages, singing out my lyric poems at dusk toward the higher bedroom windows of terrace houses, behind which maidens brush their hair, practice the harpsichord and embroider pastoral scenes.

Really?
The ultimate TSR hand-wringing exercise is to ask if you would be looked down upon or frowned upon if you did something that was unacceptable.

You should have respect for your elders.

That sounds a bit pervy/creepy what exactly do you plan on doing to them?


Why don't you have any friends? sounds like a sad lonely life.



What do you mean? I'm probably richer than your parents many people are.
Of course I do, but if I'm only going to pick up essentials e.g. stationary, books, food or whatever, it doesn't need to be a whole big organised shopping trip with friends. Whenever we go shopping together, it's fun, but we end up spending 7+ hours out and then coming home with like one bag, so sometimes it's a lot easier to just pop out (seeing as everything's only 20 minutes away) and grab the things I need.

  • Speed. Seriously, on the open road I really cant stick to 60mph. Many limits have been lowered to 50mph. People in power are literally trying to un-invent motorized transport in an attempt to boost the cycle industry. The more people who ride bicycles, the less fat *******s.



  • Piss behind opaque bus shelters when im drunk.



  • Get very drunk.



  • Swear and ****ing curse.

I'm not sure if you can say it's socially frowned upon but I find it a bit relaxing to find a corner in the corridor and just sit there before my next class. I always get people asking me to stand up and go out with people, and stop brooding.

I get a little irritated, I guess, I mean I'm really happy that they're concerned but I don't see anything wrong, I mean if your a bit of an introvert, and like to be alone every once in a while, that doesn't mean your depress or brooding.

P.S. Just my opinion btw

Well in Britain, speaking to a stranger to say anything other than "excuse me".

:lol: I was gonna say "smiling at strangers".
I wouldn't say these were 'socially unacceptable', at least not up here in Scotland anyway. It's quite common here. I smile at strangers all the time.

So when I was with a friend,my phone rang and he saw on my wallpaper was a picture of myself, a selfie I took about a week earlier. No other friends, no clever caption or meme, just me. He thought this was weird and said that no one does this. I didn't really understand that, because from my point of view, I looked nice :rolleyes: and so yes, I wouldn't mind looking at that picture when I unlock my phone. I didn't even think it suggests I'm vain, because it's not like I'm showing everyone, uploaded it online, or even wanted him to see...it's just for me.

Does anyone else actually do this? Or see the problem in it?

What things do you do which could be seen as perhaps a little socially unacceptable?
I'm quite open about visiting sex workers, which some people find socially unacceptable.

Going to the cinema alone to watch a movie is actually so much better than going with someone. The other week I asked if anyone wanted to watch a film and no one was up for it, they would rather stay home and do something else so off I went and enjoyed the movie so much more.

You can eat what you want, sit where you want, leave when you want to, watch what you want to.. It's just so much better.

Why is it socially unacceptable to watch a movie alone =_= why do people feel obliged to take someone with them, to sit in silence with :/
Let's go and ignore each other in a dark room, together!

I'm at the point where I don't care what anyone thinks and in some cases, if something I do pisses someone off, I'll do it more LOL.

I can think of anything in particular of what people may socially frown upon, but some people have found it weird that I have never tried alcohol and don't intend to either.
Amongst the asian community, haha the list is longer... i.e. some say its wrong that I'm living out for University.

I will happily walk around barefoot.

I once walked around college barefoot becuase my shoes had been rubbing like mad. I don't know, I just really like it for some reason :dontknow:

I've never really understood the cinema thing either tbh, I've done it before and feels fine I guess it's usually associated with being a shared experience rather than something you can do alone - the world is a strange, strange place
