Being Independent
Posted 8/14/08
Hmm, I'm not very independent since I can't work or pay bills, but I do befriend the right people, and I have pretty good social skills.

Not completely sure. I do want to go to Ottawa U but it really depends on what program I decide to get to. I went to a presentation for York, it sounds pretty nice.

i would define independence as living freely without having someone to dictate you what to do or decide over what you should do. Moreover, it's purely without having been dependent on your parents or guardians...

i am do not at all have an absolute independence... i still am a student anyway....
i guess i just have to be ready when the day comes that i have to be independent and hope that i would then make the suitable decisions fit for the situation...
and that independence is not the answer to everything if you want hapiness in life nowadays though you think it is....

The only university/College I've been to is Loyalist because it's only 10 minute drive away and Guelph University since my older brother goes there.

I am quite an independent person, even in school. Yeah, I have friends but I like to be alone a lot of the time. I enjoy thinking and relaxing, and just enjoying life. I feel that I am more mature than most people my age, which is why I'm like this.

I don't need people to be able to live my life. I don't need to love somebody in order to be happy. I think everybody should learn to be at least a little bit independent. It'll help you a lot in the long run.

being independent is good for certain things and not so good for others.

Being independent works perfectly fine for me.


I can cook my own food
I can clean & wash the dishes perfectly fine
I prefer being alone where I live
I learn quickly
I'm not afraid to ask for help and/or guidance about something


.. Yeah.


True true true :]

I don't ask much of my parents either, I always feel bad asking them for something.
Since I work, I feel proud for the money I earn (: but the thing is, my parents doesn't want me to spend my own money for school though, my mom said she'll pay me back the $310 I spent for classes.. weird
