That's not selling out at all. Selling out is when your job is to regulate the banking industry, but you don't do that because you're getting bribed by or otherwise feel beholden to the banking industry.

Or when you start a political career based on social justice for the poor, and 10 years later you live in a million dollar mansion and spend most of your time sucking up to wealthy donors and doing their bidding.


What you described is changing tastes and/or a realization of how society works.


Amen to that. If you have to change your haircut and clothing to get a job, so what.

A working adult who doesn't compromise on their principles gets a lot more respect from me than a high school kid whose only concern is not compromising on their clothing.

Growing old is required, growing up is optional. But honestly we were all meant to shine as children do. Maybe you went through a phase?

I've always been the same as long as I can remember, if anything I've improved...and grown bitter, but my bitterness is typically just a phase, and after that I grow some more, while still being the same. I'm always silly , not forcefully (all the time) but naturally haha. I dont think I could really sell out without losing my soul , ya know?

I'm starting to believe I sold it, I have to start getting mature. Which means less video games and more studying and working. sucks to grow up.

My sophomore year of high school. Although growing up would be the wrong term in my case, I use to always have a bowl cut (or so they say it looked like), skinny jeans, black shirt and skater vans shoes.

Once I hit sophomore year, I cut my hair short enough so it can naturally stand up in a faux hawk style, wear cargo shorts, mostly colored long sleeves or white T shirt, and chucks. Although my personality stayed the same that year, the more I went towards the end of my high school career, the more I started to care less about other people's affair or just people in general.

I can't say I ever 'sold out', haha. Outside of work I still wear anime shirts and other related nerdy clothing. Sometimes I wear punkish stuff, depending on my mood. I still got the body to wear cute skirts and stuff so I'm going to keep milking it until my face looks too old for it, ha!

I realized I'd sold out when I cut my hair.

Totally agree w/ cleruninja. Changing your perspective from time to time makes you more well rounded, not a sell out. If you are doing it to gain favor whether socially or financially, then you are a sell out. Four years from now, you could be in a wine & cigar bar, listening to jazz or retro club/swing and loving it. For me, started in the 70's with groups like Rush/Steve Miller, moved to British Punk in the early 80s, alt rock & grunge in late 80's/early 90s, jazz/swing mid to late 90s and everything in between since then. My tastes in movies, literature changed too. My love of anime, video games, having fun with friends and the ones I loved are probably the only things that did not.

Hmmm, I've been going to a part time job for the past 4 years
I always wear earphones and listen to music while I do everything
I listen to electronic music
I dress comfortably (Sports pants, stretchy shirts, hoodies)
I prefer having long hair over short
I have no idea, but maybe I'm still not "sold out"

Agreed.^

I don't think that changing the way you dress or what music you listen to is selling out or maturing. This things are so trivial. You dress like you have your act together, because that's how you get people to think you have your act together. Actually having your act together is a whole different issue.

I mean, I've seen some pretty "mature" people (especially parents) do some pretty crazy stupid things before.

When I voted for "W" the second time and he didn't get rid of Rummy the Dummy. It was that point I realized that I had "sold out" twenty years earlier....
If you try real hard you can rationalize a lot of stupid shit for a hell of a long time.
