\/eemon asked the question:
My parents complain to my older brother that he drinks and goes out too much, yet they turn back and complain to me, because I don’t go out enough.
I have been drawing since I was 4, I picked up guitar at 7, as a child I spent hours building things out of lego ; now the lego has been replaced by more “professional” tools ,and I sometimes build figurines….. all of these hobbies can be persued in solitude, and I get more enjoyment out of these hobbies than I do from any party !
Why can’t they understand this !
My parents have always encouraged me to recreate as well as work..yet they seem to think that because my recreation mostly solitary… they think it doesn’t count and would rather I go out and ” do what young people do.”
Truth is.. I am not a shy person I have friends at college, I have a girlfriend.. I debate issues with professors when I feel the need too. and I feel at ease giving a speech. I just don’t like partying.
Its semester break for Christmas, and since my girlfriend and I live far apart..we’re keep in touch by phone. Since I have some free time, i’m working on another sculpture. Although my mother is making it frstrating by her frequent complaining.
But isn’t recreation supposed to be fun ? Why should I have to go out partying if I don’t find it fun.
I find much more fulfilment in seeing a drawing to completion, learning a new song on guitar.. or seeing a character take shape as I am building it……. than I have EVER gotten at a party.
Parties bore me. I’d rather sit with a few friends for a drink than go clubbing.
