If you're not thin, you're fat


Changing Standards.. different places... You still conform. Wherever you go.

NID - a place so different from the "outside world" that you feel that here everyone is absolutely free to be whoever they want to be... But it can be the exact opposite of this here. We might be different from outside, but very similar to each other.

You are weird if you sleep on the same date you woke up, if your clothes are clean and your hair is perfect even at the end of the day... and we all conform.

Standards of thin... There is no in-between, no average. If you are not thin, you are fat, no matter what the world may think.

One thing I absolutely love about this place is that there are so many places to sit everywhere, platforms, concrete chairs, blocks, anything...; and what is even better, that we still sit on the ground around those places... anything goes...

You get so used to the "weirdness" here that you feel like an outsider to the outside world.....

very true...and i guess i really confirm to them! the perfect prototype...unclean (including my room), always in need of sleep and never really sitting around much! actually i used to walk a lot around these places to sit :)

but confirmity is deceptive...i see myself fitting perfectly with the world outside also because the confirmity in nid kind of imbibes the feeling of being 'ok', no matter how 'not ok' u r (to urself, others et el)...

i think once u r that way, ppl around also find u ok and confirming to whatever they perceive u to be! it seems to be rather a vicious circle...
