In which I am contrary (old post that I just decided to publish)

I've never liked having things dictated to me. I sometimes like a little rebellion for it's own sake.
Theological argument at Family Home Evening? I play devil's advocate.
Blanket statements about why Batman is better than Superman? I take Superman's side (though I know Batman's better).
Everyone I know starts getting married? I take a vow of celibacy. (Well...for the time being at least).

I'm the one who doesn't actually watch R-rated movies, but who gets defensive when you tell me I can't watch them.

I'm the one who could easily come in before midnight, but once the Honor Code tells me I have to, I don't want to anymore.

I'm the one who is perfectly fine to sit and wait for good things to happen, but once someone tells me I have to be patient, it suddenly feels impossible.

How's that for a stupid worldview?
