I feel very contrite that you are profligating with time. One should assiduously respect time and opportunity given.

I think I am going to need a dictionary moving forward.

(On the street of Paris)
Tony: What's your name?
She: Allie. And yours?
She: Nice meeting you, Tony.
Tony: So, this is Paris heh?
She: Are you a tourist?
Tony: Yeah. I am touring for the world for 8 months.
She: Fascinating! Tell me more...
Tony: Alright. Write down your numbers and I will call you from my hotel.

When I was finally informed of your decision to embark on a reckless adventure overseas, I am forced to demur. Whoever supported you, directly or indirectly, must be desultory. Unassumingly, this so-called trip of yours may be deleterious to your own future. I want to disabuse the notion that such a reckless and conceited way of avoiding the reality of life could somehow be wholesome. If these words appear contrary to your present dictum, I remain diffident throughout; for not doing so I would be remiss.

You have to explain where you're coming from Anon. What would you have me do instead of venturing off around the world? And where you two months ago when I was trying to decide whether to do this?
Put down the thesaurus and give me some options.

Anon is hilarious! Although the comments could not be described as diaphanous, it is certaily droll.

Agree. Anon had the effrontery to edify Tony in ways of life. It needs not cast a dyspeptic view on your trips. Stay ebullient.

This is great! I am learning new words every day.

My elegy is about preparation and preparedness; it urges you to be productive and fruitful. No wonder you only graduated from UCI with a Social Studies degree that leads to nowhere. You could have been doctors, lawyers, and school teachers like us. Pity. Do not dither through life like that any longer. Your cloying affection about a fanciful world is making me ill. Have a cogent conviction about life-choices. Not having any structure in your own life is the same as condoning the air of procrastination. I could advocate using food to assuage your loneliness, but it only adulterates its purpose. And the picture looks banal..it’s for your own good, Tony.

Tony: Some say that time is cyclical and that history inevitably repeats. Your will is your own. Don't bow to fate.

As harsh as it may sounded, Anon has a point. Are you going to boomerang back home and live with your parents when your 8 months of fun is over?
Who the hell are you people? Anon's saying I should have studied harder to become a lawyer or doctor. I never wanted to be either of those things.
I ONLY graduated with a Social Studies degree? Bite me. You still haven't given me anything useful to chew on here. All I hear is someone scolding me for wanting to gain a different kind of education and for not conforming to your idea of a fruitful life.
Why would I be "boomeranging" back home after this trip? I didn't live at home before I went on this trip. I lived on my own. I worked. I worked and saved my money. If I was going to boomerang anywhere, it'd be back to work, making money and films. Ultimately, there will be no boomeranging. This is a launching point. My path is straight in front of me, no turning back. It may be a little foggy right now but I'll get to where I need to go.
...oh, and as for talking to people... I'm working on it. Baby steps. We're talking about 25 years of shyness here. You can't just shake that off in a month.
