I could probably be a rebel if I felt like it but I'm too lazy. I just finish the stuff I have to finish then go waste my time watching anime or gaming. I haven't done anything noteworthy either. I'm pretty boring I guess

No, I'm not a rebel. I just don't always go with the crowd.

Big sis got more than the standard one piercing per earlobe. She's also had her nose pierced and her upper lip. I took out my earrings and let the two piercings block up when I was a child. I saw no reason to wear earrings just because others did and thought they were cool. We're opposites. The worse thing anyone can say to convince me to try something is say "everyone's doing it".

I guess I would say I was rebellious? Stole things, drugs, etc. petty things really. It was so much easier to do bad things when your in school, so much less punishment. Now that I have a big boy job in a big boy world I would rather not risk anything like that. Need to have money for rent and manga!

When I was a teen in, Middle School. I came from a troubled place though, and worked hard to get out of it. Definitely the worst time of my life. I went to a terrible school to begin with. I would skip classes and either hang out in the art room all day (art teacher rather I be there than leave the school grounds like most did), or hide away in the storage area behind the auditorium stage. It had a trap door with an odd looking spiral staircase descending into it, I would bring books to read there until school was out. Sometimes I got caught, and they gave me a pink slip to give to my parents but I never did. No one seemed to care beyond the pink paper. Staff never called home about it, so I thought I was in the clear. It wasn't until my parents came to the school to get me out early that got a little messy. They couldn't find me in my classes, and when I went home I found out that my mother called in a missing person's report.

Don't get me wrong. I always wanted to learn in school, and even got picked on for answering questions. The teachers were so tired of the students, they made zero effort to teach. Sometimes they just sat there, reading the paper while the students talked. Eventually I was in a fight, in defense and the teacher didn't even raise his head from his desk. No one got hurt, but I walked out of class saying "all of you can suck my dick." Spent the remainder of the school day in the art room. That's where I stayed from then on. The school recognized that that's where I would be if family came to get me early. I made a promise to myself not to hide in the storage anymore, since I worried my mother so much when no one could find me. My art teacher was like a father to me. I was good at it, and to keep me busy, he let me help him teach his classes. Considering I already passed the elective twice. It was great to go around and help other students fit into their passion. My art teacher was possibly the only one in the entire school that was actually focused on teaching, and passing on a skill or wisdom. We had long conversations that guided me through some things I was going through.

When my parents were going through a divorce, some things at home happened and I ended up running away for nearly a month and a half. I stole food from a friends house that I didn't talk to anymore. Never stole money or anything like that though, I could never do that to someone and despite my environment, I held onto morals like crazy. When I got hungry enough, I waited outside, until after class to catch my art teacher. Explained what was happening and he would take me to get food. He's the one that convinced me to go back home. I did, but it was a bit empty... My father had left, took all his things with him. In a heated argument, my mother was being absolutely ridiculous, childish; as usual. So I slapped her and yelled at her about all the stupid things she had ever done, and told her that the only way we were going to survive was if we learned to communicate. We did just that. I moved schools, caught up. Aced exams and put my mind into creating a better life. Got everything I wanted by working for it, even reconnected with my father some.

I guess bleaching my hair and getting a few piercings during all this added to the labeling. I don't know anything about being a rebel, it was just the circumstances of my life at the time. Others saw differently. I'm VERY happy that all that is over with though. If I didn't talk about it (which this is only the second time I ever have) no one would ever have known.

In my own way.

I refused to return a rifle back to an "Indian-giver." The man gave it to me as a Christmas present, but then wanted it back a year later to trade it for a brand new one. I was livid. The one he originally gave me was passed down in his family, and I put alot of value on family keepsakes.

LOL! I've certainly been part of a Confederate Civil War Reenactment Unit, although I am now part of a Union unit. I don't think that's the type of rebel the OP actually meant.

I also have a cousin who gave his son the middle name Rebel.

I've been considered a rebel among my friends...

Maybe not a rebel since I follow the law and don't bother to go on protest marches. But I'm not a conformist. Reality tv, iphones, VR and all that other crap normal people like now can just fuck off
