I take myself too seriously. People are afraid of people who take themselves seriously. People want to chill. They don't want a friend who's constantly trying to get their honest opinion on politics out of them and ignite an intellectual debate.
People don't want to hang out with someone who questions the authority of Sultans out loud and speak of unimaginable inventions.
I play along well but everyone knows how Afiq takes things (everything) seriously. When asked which donut outlet is my favourite, I will answer J.CO because of its delicate dough which best compliments Malaysian's savoury senses and because J.CO is an Indonesian company (Asia untuk Asia!) No one wants to know that! They want me to answer J.CO because it's Nice.
My tendency to observe and study things beyond the necessary level of a teenager is hurting my social pecking order. Because in the environment I'm in, intellectual discourse rarely takes place and I find myself musing social stigmas n order to relate. Because apparently, prejudism is the only subject my environment is willing to discuss.
I will have to learn to keep things to myself and make nice.
It's time to make nice.
