Confrontational, just like a New Yorker...

Whatever. Lived here for 17 years, and I don't know a thing about New Yorkers....

Yeah, but I live here NOW. I'm faced with the traffic going into the city almost every day, I'm faced with the challenge of trying to find a parking spot, I'm dealing with people all the time, I'm listening to the people ***** outside the storefront. I know the people of New York.

I don't think I'm the ****. Come to my school and try to teach the kids. We're all good kids, we just have attitudes and can intimidate you easily. It's the "New York Mentality."

Eh, I think that's true with all inner-city kids.

This isn't the inner-city, man. This is a suburb.

Honestly, I had an attitude growing up in high school. I was so sure of everything. I knew what I saw, and I saw what I knew. I was full of it.

Then, I found out that the older I got, the less I was sure of anything. About everything. I went through different things, met different people, lived in different places, and found out that nothing is what it seems.

And I found out that living your whole life with a set attitude is no way to live life at all.

I'll think of that when I'm 30, but right now, I'm a kid.

And yes, Steve-o, I'm done. Don't want to destroy the thread anymore than it already is. Continue on with the thread...
