do people hange?
i mean REALLY change?
and more annoying, if that's what you mean?
literally every cell in the body dies out and is regenerated over a 7 year cycle
if that isn't change then what is?
So did Meths!
i mean like
"you know that chris? he used to be a right cunt - and now he is really NICE!"
"that chris - he used to be a right deadbveat - and now he is a multi billionaire!!!"
that changed. A lot. At Uni. I think the Uni environment might have encouraged him to do so.
but not much. They just react differently to different people/scenarios making them seem different as their life progresses.
ie - i used to be really messy and now i am really tidy BUT - im not really, its just the person i live with is very tidy and i like to make them happy so i am tidy. they go away for a few days and i manage to turn the flat into a complete mess. so i haven't really changed at all!
That's sort of what I mean.
Except I think that peoples attitudes can change a bit over the course of time as the hard, hard wheels of life run them over repeatedly.
That's why I'm voting Tory from now on! Fewer wheels!
that could turn into a helicopter. He was a dick.
That's a shame.
dash after my name.
whilst I've been away :)
quite a lot and my conclusion is: no, not really.
but then again i'm a bit of a cynic or a realist or something.
to some extent I really think so. Certainly in my experience. Obviously there's always a core laid down very early in life that forms a kind of common thread you can't get rid of. Even then I've found it possible to 'unlearn' some pretty fundamental ideas and behaviours.
